Global Rodent Control Market Size is Estimated to Reach USD 4,907.85 Million by 2031, Growing at a CAGR of 6.19%: Straits Research

The global rodent control market is witnessing significant growth across the globe, owing to a rise in economic activity, an increase in urbanization, and an upsurge in population. An increase in urbanization and population growth gives rise to garbage generation. Rodents are attracted to those urban areas that provide a wealth of hiding places and easy access to food concentration. These factors facilitate rodent growth and are considered the primary factor that drives the growth of the rodent control market.

New York, United States, Feb. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rodent control restricts and manages the proliferation of rodents such as rats and mice. Rodent control limits the population of destructive, poisonous, or deadly rodents through chemical, biological, or other methods. Rodenticides are chemicals that kill rodents. These are chemicals or chemical mixtures intended to reduce the harm caused by rodents. The control of rodents is acknowledged to be harmful to human health. Norwegian rats, roof rats, and house mice tend to inhabit areas where human activities can result in significant health problems. In recent years, rodent management has become increasingly important. Urban locations, such as megacities with over 20 to 25 million population, and rural areas extensively use rodent control methods.

Increasing Urbanization Coupled with Exponential Growth of Population and Easy Availability of Rodent Control Products and Services Drives the Global Market

According to Straits Research, “The global rodent control market size was valued at USD 2,858.26 million in 2022. It is estimated to reach USD 4,907.85 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.19% during the forecast period (2023–2031).”  Urbanization and population growth contribute to an increase in waste production. Rats and mice are drawn to metropolitan environments with abundant hiding spots and quick access to the food supply. As the primary driver of the growth of the rodent control industry, these characteristics promote rodent proliferation. The management of pests has become an integral element of human existence. Pest populations have increased due to the escalating rate of lifestyle change and population growth. In order to maximize crop productivity, rodent control has gained immense importance over the years in the agricultural sector. This has compelled the governments of various nations to establish rodent control strategies and mandate the use of rodenticides in crop management. As a result of the increased implementation of such policies, rodent control goods are freely available, fueling market expansion.

Rising R&D activities to Develop Bio-Based Rodenticides Creates Tremendous Opportunities

The non-targeted environment, such as air, water, and soil, is incredibly harmed by rodenticides. Nonetheless, it is predicted that the deployment and development of bio-based rodenticides such as “Biorat” will mitigate the negative impacts, making the ecosystem safer for people and non-targeted organisms. Organic rodent control techniques are less destructive to the environment and less poisonous to non-targeted insects, animals, and aquatic life. This aspect is anticipated to generate new growth prospects for the market for rodent control over the forecast period.
