Pyrethroids are synthetic modifications of naturally occurring pyrethrin which is extracted from Chrysanthemum flowers. They are primarily used to kill insects such as mosquitos, flies, ants, moths and farm pests. They have similar properties to pyrethrin but are not sensitive to sunlight. They have low toxicity to mammals or birds and are administered in small quantities to kill bugs and flying insects. They are widely used as household insecticides and have a short shelf life with biodegradable properties. Pyrethroids are used in the form of wet powders, granules, emulsifying concentrates and ultra-low volume (ULV) sprays.

Extensive application of pyrethroids across agriculture and residential sectors is the key factor driving the market growth. With the growing population and diminishing farmlands, novel farming practices are being adopted by farmers across the world for improved yield. Consequently, pyrethroids are being widely adopted in the agriculture and allied sectors. They serve as a cost-effective alternative to the conventionally used insecticides. Furthermore, to compete with the synthetic variants, manufacturers are focusing on enhanced production and more efficient distribution of pyrethroids. Additionally, since they are less toxic to mammals and birds, these insecticides are constantly replacing organophosphates, which are conventionally used on vegetables including carrots and lettuce. Moreover, these insecticides are known for their high potency and extreme effectiveness. Owing to this, there is an increasing demand for pyrethroids in cloth treatment and mosquito control across residential and industrial sectors, which is projected to catalyze the growth of the market further.
