Despite the prolonged lockdowns and supply chain disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic, market players did not report any decline in their revenues. For instance, Zoetis reported an increase of 22% in its dermatology segment revenue from 2019 to 2020 and an increase of 25% from 2020 to 2021. In contrast, there was an increase in pet adoption. Around 50% rise in pet adoption was reported in the U.S, during the first quarter of the pandemic. This led to the growing number of pet households along with the expenditures on them, which included medical expenditures.

According to the National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), as of 2021-2022, around 90.5 million families, i.e. 70% of households in the U.S. owned a pet. As per the same report, the total number of pets insured in the U.S. in 2021 was 3.9 million, a 28% increase since 2020. An increase in the number of pet owners is driving the need for better treatment options for companion animals, which is resulting in rising health expenditure on pets. This increasing pet expenditure leads to rising demand for more effective therapeutics, which is anticipated to fuel the market growth.

The increasing prevalence of canine atopic dermatitis is also likely to act as a driving factor in market growth. Canine atopic dermatitis is a hereditary clinical syndrome in domestic dogs. Furthermore, the most common cause of itchy allergic skin disease in dogs is atopic dermatitis. According to data published by Frontiers Media S.A. in October 2020, the disease is estimated to affect around 10-15% of the canine population. The publication also stated that this number is likely to increase with time. Market players such as Zoetis have products such as Cytopoint, which was the first-ever monoclonal antibody treatment for allergic and atopic dermatitis.

The increasing incidence of cancer, especially in canines, is expected to positively impact the market growth. As per a study published by the Animal Cancer Foundation, 32 million cats and 65 million dogs are suffering from cancer in the U.S. Dogs are more likely to suffer from malignant neoplasia (tumor) and lymphoma, as per the American Veterinary Medical Association. Moreover, the market is supported by various health initiatives, especially focusing on cancer treatment, by the government as well as private organizations.
