According to the National Pesticide Information Center (US), ‘Rodenticides are pesticides that kill mice and rats.’ Even though rodents play an important role in nature, they are increasingly required to be controlled, as they damage crops, transmit diseases, and in some cases, cause ecological damage. Rodenticides are formulated as baits, which are designed to attract rodents.

The Asia Pacific market is completely driven by the country markets of China, India, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia and few other Asian counties. As the world’s largest and most populous region, Asia Pacific is one of the key markets for rodenticides. Rodents are common pests present in agricultural fields. Annually, extensive volumes of agricultural produce are destroyed and contaminated by rodents. To meet the increase in demand for food products and to reduce the crop damages caused by rodents, the use of rodenticides has increased significantly in the region. The food retail, food manufacturing, pharmaceutical, hospitality, and residential sectors are expected to be major growth verticals in this market.Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period due to several reasons. One of the major drivers of the market is the fact that agriculture is one of the most significant revenue-generating sectors in China and India. The growing population within the region is urging the farmers to provide a maximum yield to fulfill the demand of the increasing population. In such cases, the increasing crop damage and decreasing food production due to rodents are expected to leverage this market positively.
