May 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Wildlife Health Market Growth & Trends

The global wildlife health market size is expected to reach USD 4.67 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 9.89% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The demand for zoonotic disease prevention, sustainable ecosystem management, and animal conservation are driving the market. The market landscape is being shaped by cutting-edge technology, greater investment, and the adoption of the ‘One Health’ strategy. The quadripartite Organizations - FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization, UN, WOAH (World Organization for Animal Health), WHO (World Health Organization), and UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) - collaboratively developed ‘One Health Joint Plan of Action (2022-2026)’ to enhance the conservation of wildlife management and overall animal & human wellbeing.

The effective management of wildlife health requires cooperation amongst stakeholders, including governmental organizations, academic institutions, conservation groups, and local populations. Innovative ideas and enhanced conservation outcomes can result from the creation of platforms for information sharing and cooperation. For instance, in September 2021, a cooperative agreement was signed by Virbac and Jectas Innovators for the development of animal health vaccines. The emergence of COVID-19 has emphasized the value of researching zoonotic illnesses or infections from wild animal reservoirs. To stop future outbreaks and safeguard the well-being of humans and wildlife, it is essential to look into the origins, transmission routes, and potential hosts of zoonotic illnesses.

Although the vulnerability of many wildlife species to COVID-19 has not been thoroughly investigated, some preliminary study suggests that some animals, like minks, may be able to contract the virus. COVID-19 outbreaks in mink farms occurred in a number of nations, which necessitated the mass killing of afflicted animals to stop the virus's spread. Initiatives to promote veterinary care for wild animals in zoos, sanctuaries, and national parks, among others, have been implemented by various wildlife resources and organizations. For instance, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has been collaborating with partners from nearly 100 countries to sustain the healthcare of wildlife and people. The organization has over 5 million members registered globally, with over 1.3 million in the U.S. Similarly, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) funds more than 2,500 wildlife conservation projects in over 100 countries worldwide. These measures are largely boosting the growth of the market.
