Rodenticides Market – Report Summary
Written by: Sebastian Wilmar
Hi, my name is Sebastian. Since 2017 I am working in the sector of pest control. We all know the risks of using rodenticides. Some hard facts caught my attention and I would like to give you a few interesting insights:
‘Rodenticides are pesticides that kill mice and rats.’ National Pesticide Information Center (US)
We all know the importance of controlling rodents. Many professional pest controllers use baits with rodenticides which attract rodents. As we know there are a few risks like primary and secondary poisoning of non target animals which are caused by the use of anticoagulant rodenticides.
AS PROMISED HERE ARE SOME FACTS THAT CAUGHT MY ATTENTION:
- The market for rodenticides is estimated at USD 4.9 billion in 2020.Until 2026 the market is estimated to growth to USD 6.6 billion. The urbanization and the increasing awareness on public hygiene are two of multiple reasons for the ongoing growth of the market.
- Anticoagulant rodenticides such as bromadiolone and brodifacoum are mostly preferred in the US. They are part of the second-generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGAR). But with increasing resistance of rodents against rodenticides, the demand of rodenticides is expected to reduce significantly.
- Professional Pest Control Services are mostly used by residential and commercial complexes. As well as warehouses in the US.
- Asia Pacific will have the highest growth rate in the rodenticide market (2020)
- North America is the biggest market for rodenticides. More than 400 species of rats and mice live there and many rodent attacks have been reported in 2020.
- Plans were made to kill the growing rat population in North America. This will effect the rodenticide market positively. But only a few rodenticides are legal and the ongoing restitances of rats and mice against toxic bait is the reason why we need to think about alternative monitoring and controlling strategies. Digital traps could be part of the solution.
Rodenticides are a money driven market. But new technology like digital traps and digital permanent monitoring systems show us that rodenticides are not necessary. We all know the impact of primary and secondary poisoning and the environmental damage increased by rodenticides. We need to find a responsible way of working.
