There is also an increase in the per capita income, which leads to a rise in demand for hygienic living conditions.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact the global rodenticides industry.

The supply chain has been disrupted due to the result of government imposition of lockdown across many regions. This has reduced many stakeholders involved in the supply chain from taking the products to the destined place. The demand is relatively stable, but the limited supply to the distributors or retailers is stopping the product to reach out to the customers. The labour shortage and reduce the supply of raw materials is a major issue due to the restrictions on the movement of people or vehicles. The pandemic of COVID-19 has resulted in the closure of restaurants and other businesses, due to which rats are being seen on the streets in the daylight, thus defying their normally nocturnal behavior. Due to these factors, the demand for rodenticides is projected to increase amidst the pandemic.
