Rising Demand for Proteinaceous Food Fueling Global Animal Health Market Growth

Livestock products have emerged as a primary source of dietary proteins due to increased urbanization and changes in lifestyle, leading to the increased consumption of meat and milk. High living standards, growth in the population, and rapid growth in the consumption of animal products have forced the livestock industry to adapt to the change and meet society's expectations with improved-quality products. In addition, in South Asia, there has been steady growth in the consumption of animal products, predominantly milk and poultry meat, while in East Asia, pork is the predominant product consumed. As per Our World in Data, global demand for meat is growing: over the past 50 years, meat production has more than quadrupled. Worldwide more than 320 million metric tons of meat is produced each year. The global emphasis has shifted toward increasing the production of farm animals to fulfill the demand for protein-rich food, such as eggs, milk, and meat. However, due to the mounting risk of animal disease transfer to humans, the need for animal healthcare products has also surged at the global level. Such factors have aided the growth of global animal health market.
