Insecticide Aerosol Making Plant


1. Product: Insecticide kills mosquitoes, flies and other harmful or undesirable insects.It contributes to maintenance of a sanitary living environment. Insecticide is sprayed from an aerosol can.  The aerosol insecticides are convenient for domestic or any indoor use (in the house, hotel, offices.... etc).

 

2. Rationale:  Mosquitoes and other flies are attacking large section of the   Region and are hazardous to the health of many section of the population.  At present there is no pesticide factory in the region that produces chemical to fight the hazardous health problem.  The establishment of an aerosol insecticide making plant in the region will contribute a lot to reduce the crises.  The people can purchase the aerosol insecticide in the nearby market and spray it in their homes, which will kill all undesirable insects including mosquitoes.  Hotel and office can also use the insecticide. 

3. Market: Current demand of aerosol insecticide is met from imports and some amount from domestic production in other regions.  There is large demand by the population to reduce the effects of hazardous health problem derived from insects inside the houses.  The demand for aerosol insecticides grows with growing urbanization and rising income of the population.  The establishment of an aerosol insecticide making demand will have sufficient market in the region and can also trade it product outside the region.
