North America veterinary dermatology drugs market size, by route of administration, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

During the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the market players did not report any negative effect on their revenue. This was because animal health was considered an essential business, due to the high demand for animal protein. In May 2020, Jeffrey N. Simmons, CEO of Elanco stated that the industry is going into an economic slowdown. However, he also stated that its manufacturing facilities in China are actively running in full swing. The company also reported an increase of 5.1% in its therapeutics segment. On the other hand, Merck & Co., Inc. reported a loss of USD 50.0 million in its animal health segment. Through this, it is evident that the overall impact of COVID-19 on Veterinary Dermatology Drugs was neutral.

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. According to The American Pet Products Association, the overall spending in the U.S. pet industry increased to USD 95.7 billion in 2019 from USD 90.5 billion in 2018, and it is estimated to reach USD 99.0 billion in 2020. Moreover, in 2019-2020, about 67.0% of households in the U.S. owned a pet, which is equal to approximately 84.9 million homes. This percentage had increased by about 11% since 1988, where 56% of the households in the U.S. owned a pet.

Key players are investing to launch new products, which is also boosting the market. For instance, in May 2021, Elanco launched its first oral flea and tick product for cats. The product is called Credelio CAT (lotilaner) and it increases Elanco’s product portfolio as well as helps it to gain a competitive edge in the market.

The companion animal segment dominated the market and held the largest revenue share of more than 70.0% in 2020. Rising pet ownership is expected to boost the market growth. The segment is further divided into dogs, cats, horses, and others. The dogs' segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share due to high product availability for the treatment of dogs.

The livestock animal segment held the second-largest revenue share in 2020. It is further classified into cattle and others.

The injectable segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of over 10.5% during the forecast period as injectable drugs allow convenient administration in a much smaller number of doses as compared to oral drugs. For instance, Convenia by Zoetis treats the animal in only one dose as compared to 28 doses of pills. The topical segment is also expected to grow significantly owing to its high adoption.

Indication Insights

According to WebMD, a study conducted by Colorado State University in May 2021, found Lyme disease-carrying ticks, abundantly near beaches of Northern California, the U.S. Therefore, high incidences of such parasitic diseases are expected to boost the market growth.

The allergic infections segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of over 10.2% during the forecast period.

Furthermore, pet owners making more pet care decisions are also expected to boost the growth of the market.

Distribution Channel Insights
