Increase in insurance-based pest control services: a major market driver
The increase in insurance-based pest control services is one of the major factors driving the global pest control services market. Several players in the market are coming up with insurance-based pest control services due to the significant costs associated with pest control, particularly for commercial customers. Major hotels and other businesses are choosing these pest control services.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on retail goods and services, “As standard insurance policies provided for commercial properties do not include extermination costs, a round of pest control can require considerable investment. The increasing availability of specialized insurance policies will permit customers to control their expenses and access a reliable service provider.”

Increase in connected pest control services: emerging market trend
The increased availability of connected pest control services is trending in the market. RADAR is a device, which captures and kills mice humanely and hygienically. It is designed for industries with zero tolerance to pests such as the manufacturing, food industry, pharmaceutical, and healthcare facilities. The customer portal collects the data from the cloud storage system and provides reporting and analysis for businesses to monitor and analyze data for their sites in real time. More companies are expected to introduce connected pest control services during the forecast period.
Global market opportunities
In 2017, the Americas accounted for approximately 51% of the market share, followed by EMEA and APAC respectively. Nearly 20,000 pest control companies operate in North America alone. Though the slow economic growth of the Americas in 2017, particularly in the US, had adversely affected the demand in a few end-user markets, the increased demand for pest control services from APAC countries has offset the effects of the slowdown in the Americas. The pest control services market in the UK is growing at a rate of approximately 6% annually. The increased international travel has promoted the spread of pests such as bed bugs, whereas climate changes have led to the spread of insects such as the oak processionary moth that can cause serious health issues and severe damage to the oak trees.
