Increasing Incidences of Zoonotic Diseases to Drive Animal Health Market

Animals can act as carriers of harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi to humans, leading to illness, which are referred as zoonotic diseases or zoonoses. The clinical effect of zoonotic illnesses may range from mild to severe, and might sometimes lead to death. Zoonotic diseases are prevalent in the world. As per the estimates of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), 3 out of every 4 new or upcoming infectious diseases in people comes from animals. In the past decades, many previously unknown infectious human diseases, such as Ebola virus, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Nipah virus, West Nile virus, and Hantavirus infections, have emerged from animal reservoirs. Outbreaks such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and avian influenza have reminded the potential of microorganisms from animal reservoirs to adapt to human hosts. More than three-quarters of the human diseases that are new, emerging, or re-emerging at the beginning of the 21st century are caused by pathogens that are originated from animals or products of animal origin. According to the WHO, about 1 billion cases of illness and millions of death occur from zoonoses. Hence, emerging and re-emerging of zoonotic diseases have become a significant factor raising the demand for animal health, and this has triggered companies to produce advanced pharmaceuticals and vaccines to help animal owners or other stakeholders to maintain the overall health of animals.

Product-Based Insights

Based on product, the global animal health market is segmented into prescription and non-prescription. The prescription segment is sub-segmented into vaccines, pharmaceuticals, feed additives, and diagnostics.

Product launches and collaborations are some organic developments adopted strategies by the global animal health market players. Merger & acquisition, collaboration, and partnership by the operating players in the market with an aim to bridge the demand-supply gap are anticipated to play a major role in the growth of the animal health industry during the forecast period. A few of the recent key market developments are listed below:

In February 2020, Zoetis received FDA approval for Simparica Trio, a new combination parasite preventative for dogs. It is a first monthly chewable tablet launched in the US, which provides all-in-one protection from heartworm disease, ticks, and fleas, roundworms, and hookworms in dogs.

In October 2019, Ceva Santé Animale signed an exclusive license agreement with ProBioGen AG, manufacturer of vectorized poultry vaccines by using ProBioGen’s proprietary AGE1.CR technology.

The overall animal health market growth slowed due to increase in the number of COVID-19 infected patients, lockdown across the world, and restrictions on imports and exports. To check the impact of COVID-19 on animals, various studies were conducted to analyze the spread of diseases from animals to humans. In many cases, zoonotic diseases were found in humans due to their interaction with animals. Therefore, government bodies took more precautions and safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in animals. The measures were widely carried out for companion animals as they frequently came in contact with their owners. For instance, in North America, the cases of detection of COVID-19 were reported to OIE through WAHIS, in accordance with the OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Code as an emerging disease. The OIE actively worked by assisting researchers for their on-going research and other implications of COVID-19 for animal health and veterinary public health. In addition, pharmaceutical companies operating in the animal health sectors were slightly affected due to lockdown. The lockdown impacted the worldwide imports and exports of pharmaceutical products for animals, leading to the shortage of supplies for nutrition feeds and animal additives. However, with the removal of lockdown and ease in restrictions, the global animal health market will grow at a steady pace during the forecast period.

The growth of animal health market is driven by some key driving factors such as increasing incidences of zoonotic diseases, rise in demand for proteinaceous food, and initiatives by governments and animal welfare associations. However the use of counterfeit medicines, and high complexity and cost of animal drug development and approval processes are likely to restraint the market growth during the forecast period.
Developing a drug for animals is much complicated and is a bit expensive. The stringent government regulations for drug approvals are the biggest hurdles in the animal health industry. The drug development process can take up to 5–7 years and cost more than US$ 10 million before entering the stage of approval. In addition, animal medicines remain heavily regulated and are subjected to strict laws that protect animals and humans, as well as the environment. Thus, drug development for animals is quite costlier, and sometimes it may become a restraint for the animal health market.
