MEA Emerging Highly Lucrative

According to WHO, Middle East & Africa (MEA) reports the highest number of vector-borne diseases. The region is characterized by limited medical facilities, and awareness about vector-borne diseases among consumers is poor. The government in this region is focused on improving health index of the population, inadvertently creating high growth opportunities for market players. Major players in the market are looking to cash in on first mover advantage in this highly lucrative, yet largely untapped market.

  • Natural or herb-based insect repellants are estimated to surge product penetration in tropical and sub-tropical regions.
  • Strengthening of supply chain will be an effective way to boost the Natural Insect Repellent market.

However, these leading natural insect repellent market players are profoundly impacted by a surge in illegal and unsafe products available in the market that are claimed to be natural.
