The global rodenticides market is estimated to be valued at USD 5.3 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 7.1 billion by 2027, recording a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. The rodenticides market is driven by rapid urbanization across regions. The increase in awareness on public hygiene, the prevention of vector-borne diseases, and the rise in purchasing power parity (PPP) among the middle-class population are factors that have encouraged the demand for pest control services, globally. In addition, government initiatives for maintaining environmental hygiene are projected to drive the demand for rodenticides. For instance, the “clean-up” movement in India has proven to be a major driver for the insect pest control industry.

Increase in the global trade of rodenticides

Germany is one of the global leaders engaged in the export of rodenticides. It is followed by India, the US, the UK, Belgium, and Italy. Germany has a presence of major chemical companies, such as Bayer AG and BASF SE, which have a wide portfolio of insect pest control products. The country is a major exporter of rodenticides to countries, such as the Netherlands, the UK, and France. These countries import rodenticides due to their high-quality standards, fewer transportation costs, and easy accessibility. India is emerging as a potential export hub for high-quality rodenticides due to low-cost manufacturing and the security of patented new active ingredients. India majorly exports rodenticides to countries, such as Brazil, the US, and the Netherlands. China is a dominant exporter of rodenticides to Southeast Asian countries, such as Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia. This increase in demand for rodenticides across the globe is attributed to factors, such as government initiatives for health awareness programs, an increase in crop losses, and a rise in health concerns due to rodent attacks.

Sprays are Permitted for use only by Professional Pest Applicators

Most fumigants include phosphide compounds, such as zinc and aluminum phosphides. Bromides are also used for rodent treatment in a few countries. Carbon dioxide is also used as a fumigant against commensal mice. Fumigants or rodenticides in the spray form are used in warehouses, along with minimal use in agricultural fields. Sprays cannot be used in urban areas because they cause health concerns in humans and other non-target animals. Fumigants are used for destroying rodent burrows through gassing. It involves the insertion of either pellets or tablets in the rodent burrow, which are then sealed with soil. The gases evolved to build up to concentrations that are lethal to the rodents occupying the burrows

North America and Asia Pacific are the major exporters of crops across the globe. High quantities of grains are stored in warehouses, and fumigants, are majorly used in these warehouses for rodent control. In addition, sprays of zinc phosphide are used against mouse plagues in Australia.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region with a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific market is completely driven by the country markets of China, India, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia and few other Asian counties. As the world’s largest and most populous region, Asia Pacific is one of the key markets for rodenticides. Rodents are common pests present in agricultural fields. Annually, extensive volumes of agricultural produce are destroyed and contaminated by rodents. To meet the increase in demand for food products and to reduce the crop damages caused by rodents, the use of rodenticides has increased significantly in the region. The food retail, food manufacturing, pharmaceutical, hospitality, and residential sectors are expected to be major growth verticals in this market.Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period due to several reasons. One of the major drivers of the market is the fact that agriculture is one of the most significant revenue-generating sectors in China and India. The growing population within the region is urging the farmers to provide a maximum yield to fulfill the demand of the increasing population. In such cases, the increasing crop damage and decreasing food production due to rodents are expected to leverage this market positively.

Key players in this market include Basf Se(Germany), Bayer Ag(Germany), Syngenta Ag(Switzerland), UPL Limited(India) & Neogen Corporation(US)
