Synthetic pyrethroids have been classified into two types, mainly type I and type II. It is observed that the addition of the alpha-cyano group to the 3-phenoxylbenzyl alcohol group in type II and increased the insecticidal potency. Pyrethrin and piperonyl butoxide together come in the form of a shampoo that is applied to the skin and hair. It is applied in two to three treatments to treat lice. Pyrethrin is also used in body lice medicines such as A-200, Pyrinate, Barc, Lice-Enz, Licetrol, Pronto, Tisit, Tisist blue and Tripple X.

Based on pest type, the pyrethrin market has been segmented into mites, lepidoptera, coleoptera, coleoptera, diptera, and others. In 2019, the diptera dominated the market with the largest share. The diptera or true flies include insects, such as midges, mosquitoes, sandflies, blowflies, and houseflies. The class of diptera flies contaminates the food and spreads diseases such as typhoid, malaria, and cholera. The dipteran larvae are legless. They live in aquatic, semi-aquatic, or moist terrestrial environments. Pyrethrin, as an insecticide, is highly capable of directly impacting the nervous system of diptera flies. This kills them directly or ends up harming their reproductive systems. Rise in adoption rate of pyrethrin as an insecticide due to its strong and life threatening effects on diptera has favored the global pyrethrin market.
In 2019, North America held the largest share of global pyrethrin market in 2019.
