Mosquitoes can transmit several diseases, such as malaria, the Zika virus, yellow fever, dengue, and West Nile virus, among others. A mosquito repellent wristband provides protection against mosquitoes since it contains mosquito-repellent chemicals that are widely utilized in spray or cream-based mosquito repellents. Wristbands are fast and easy to use, and they are easily worn by babies and children without the fear of hazardous consequences or side effects. In mosquito-repellent wristbands, a variety of natural and synthetic chemicals are used to prevent mosquito bites and mosquito-borne diseases.

The most widely used inorganic chemicals in the manufacture of mosquito-repellent wristbands include ethyl hexane diol, diethyl carbonate, diethyl phthalate, and N, N-diethyl-meta-toluamide (DEET). Also, several natural ingredients, such as lavender, lemon eucalyptus oil, soybean oil, and cinnamon oil, are used in herbal mosquito-repellent wristbands. Consumers increasingly prefer natural ingredient-based mosquito repellent wristbands in order to avoid problems such as allergies, skin rashes, and breathing ailments, among others.

Chemical-based mosquito repellent wristbands are those wristbands that have synthetic chemicals such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535, etc., as an active ingredients. Over the past few years, chemical-based mosquito repellent wristbands have lost market share to natural ingredient-based mosquito repellent wristbands owing to the side effects of toxic chemicals such as DEET.

Moreover, the rate of product searches online has surged significantly in recent years, offering huge business opportunities for this channel.

In 2017, Europe accounted for the highest market value share, followed by North America. For the forecast period, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness a high growth rate due to the high demand for mosquito-repellent products and increased consumer disposable income, especially in China and India.
