The primary reasons behind such market growth have been increased population, growing economic activities, infestations of insects, and intolerance for termites and pests.

Besides, climate change has become one of the catalysts for the increasing demand for pest control services worldwide.  

According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, warmer temperatures will potentially drive a nearly 244 percent increase in the populations of flies and pests by 2080.

If the prediction of the reports is right, there will be a sharp increase in associated diseases. To avoid this, consumers are likely to incline more towards pest control services and preventive measures to escape the damaging effects.

This post will briefly discuss the results of the report by Grand View Research on termite/pest control market size and trends in the US and other parts of the world.

Termite Control Market Trend in North America

According to the termite control report, the demand for pest control services in North America increases, as consumers are opting for professional service providers than DIY products.

Particularly in the US, the high use of wood in residential and commercial buildings provides more opportunities for service providers.

The increasing use of biocides is another major factor that has propelled the market growth. Biocides are replacing traditional pesticides because they are more environmentally friendly.

Leading pest control companies are registering CO2 for controlling pests under the EU biocidal regulations. In 2019, North America dominated the biocide market with a 48.3 percent share. Another report published in 2018 revealed earlier that nearly 29 percent of Americans had experienced a pest issue at some point.

In the commercial sphere, 80 percent of hotels and motels in the US reported bugs in 2019. Other than the persistent termites, invasions of Yellow fever mosquito have become a problem in 23 US states.

The existing government rules and regulations across the US states pose a significant challenge for the market from growing further. Similar to Europe, the US may need regulations like the REACH and Biocidal Products Regulation.

These regulations ensure that service providers safely use biocide products by minimizing the risk of exposure to families, foods, pets, the environment, and wildlife. Non-compliance with these regulations may result in penalties, including fines, remedial measures, and license revocation.
