The global animal health market size is expected to reach USD 112.36 billion by 2030, expanding at 8.8% CAGR from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is driven by increased investments in animal health R&D, increased diagnostic rates, initiatives by key companies, and increased animal health expenditure. The market has also remained largely resilient during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The market especially for the companion animal segment was positively impacted during late 2020 and 2021, due to increased pet adoption rates, pet humanization trends, and improved overall diagnostics business sales with increased awareness among pet parents. During 2022 and 2023 however, macroeconomic uncertainties, such as global recession and inflation, are expected to impact market revenues for a short period.
The emergence of veterinary health information systems, specifically in developed economies, is expected to provide high growth potential in the future. With the help of these systems, data generated in veterinary clinics can be uploaded on the internet, which can be further shared with other researchers and clinicians. The incorporation of this technology will facilitate real-time analysis for fluctuations in disease prevalence. As a consequence of the aforementioned factors, it is presumed that there will be a significant improvement in the overall penetration rate of veterinary health products, which is anticipated to fuel market demand as well as revenue.
The threat of zoonotic infections spreading through ticks, and fleas or through contact with animals is high. The WHO is involved in various cross-sectoral activities for the purpose of addressing health threats at the human-animal-ecosystem interface. Food-borne zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance, and emerging zoonoses are some of the threats in the animal health market. Also, MediLabSecure, a laboratory network project, was initiated with an aim of identifying emerging viruses and pathogens in 19 countries in the Mediterranean region. The implementation of a wide range of technologies for the detection and monitoring of various animal diseases is one of the major growth contributing factors.
North America captured a substantial share of the global market, owing to a wide range of definitive measures adopted by welfare organizations, technological advancements, rising incidence of zoonotic diseases, and an increasing number of pet owners. Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit lucrative growth over the coming years as a consequence of consistent R&D investments deployed by prominent players and their efforts to commercialize branded and generic therapeutics at a relatively inexpensive price.
Key market participants employ various strategies, such as expanding their product portfolio, to gain a competitive advantage. For instance, in January 2021, Zoetis launched the Poulvac Procerta HVT-IBD vaccine for the protection of poultry against Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD). This added to Zoetis’ product portfolio of recombinant vector vaccines.
