FMI has forecast the termite bait products market to rise at 5.6% CAGR between 2021 and 2031 in comparison to the 5.2% CAGR registered during 2016-2020.

The rise in hospitality and tourism sector is likely to create opportunity for sales of termite bait products. Following the COVID-19 outbreak stringent restrictions were implemented on movement, which shuttered the travel and tourism industry for over a year. This also caused major losses in the hospitality and tourism sector, which is a key end user of termite bait products.

However, the demand quickly recovered with containment of the pandemic. Sales in the termite bait products market picked up as hotels and hospitality sector reopened. Higher focus on maintaining hygiene and cleanliness resulted in increasing demand for termite bait products.

The introduction of pre-treating through in-ground termite bait systems is creating a lucrative opportunity for the market. Builders from both residential and commercial sectors are implementing this methodology in order to prevent termites from entering and feeding on to newly constructed structures. Moreover, innovations in technology have made it easier for any individuals to install the baiting system. Thus, pre-construction termite treatment is gaining popularity among customers and resulting in higher sales of termite bait products.

According to FMI, the sales of chemical-free termite bait products are expected to pick up over the assessment period. Initially, maximum pest control solutions were derived from chemicals that were hazardous to kids, pets and surroundings. However, with time and modern technology, manufacturers have found safer and more effective solutions to get rid of termites for a longer period.

Over the years and after many observation, a lot about termites is discovered that has helped the manufacturers to offer effective products that serve the purpose. This also has led to the emergence of various new brands and players at regional level who are providing with affordable solutions to kill termites.

Maximum number of these brands are customer centric and provide additional free services such as inspection, installation and monitoring at certain-periods. Such initiatives are paving way for termite bait products market growth over the forecast period.

Will Launch of Novel Bait Systems Drive Termite Bait Products Market?

Not only individuals living in building but builders also look for innovative ways to prevent termites from feeding on structures of constructed units. Therefore, manufacturers in the termite bait products market are working on introducing novel solutions to offer greater termite protection for a longer time. For instance, in 2020, BASF launched the new Trelona Advance Termite Baiting System (ATBS) throughout Australia. The system is a highly potent, new active ingredient and stylish, secure bait stations that are easy to install, check and re-fill.

In addition, companies are launching new applications and services that will help them expand their global presence. For instance, in 2021, the company announced the launch of new mobile application Corteva™ FarmFundi, which provides a digital pest and disease identification guide for farmers across Africa and the Middle East. With the help of the app, farmers can consult expert crop scientists and local agronomists for treatment recommendations.

In order to control the spread of the virus, regional governments had implemented the restriction on movements of individuals in commercial areas. The termite baiting products require an active service team to monitor and replace the baits at regular intervals.

The pandemic outbreak has resulted in disruption in numerous business sectors like construction and real estate, thus impacting the demand for termite bait products temporarily. On the other hand, COVID-19 also accelerated the adoption of e-commerce platforms thus, driving the trend of placing orders through digital platforms, which is likely to re-shape the market.
