Advent of Pest Control Software will Bolster Growth
The rise in the number of fatal vector-borne diseases is a major factor in promoting the growth of the pest control market growth. The World Health Organization states an annual of 7,00,000 deaths to vector-borne diseases, which accounts for 17% of all infectious diseases in the world. Diseases caused by pests are promoting the need for various pest control methods such as biological, mechanical, and chemical methods, thereby augmenting growth. Additionally, the increasing urbanization and industrialization that propelled a rise in construction activities have also increased the hygiene standards among people. This further added impetus to the rise in the need for pest control.
On the negative side, the use of pesticides and insecticides is strictly monitored by various agencies such as the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States and the government. They have imposed stringent regulations on the use of fatal chemicals and highly toxic pest control products and services that may pose a threat to the environment. This may hamper the overall market in the coming years.
Nevertheless, the increasing adoption of the pest control software is currently trending, thereby creating lucrative growth opportunities for the future market.
Insects Segment to Dominate Market with its Proliferating Population
