Preventing animal disease and monitoring animal food supplies are vital to ensure safety of food supply. Breeding of healthy livestock guarantees a safe supply of food and keep selling prices stable. Zoonotic diseases can adversely affect public health, international trade, and the stability of the agricultural sector, resulting in a loss of millions of dollars owing to livestock trade halts, animal slaughters, and subsequent disease elimination efforts. In November 2017, Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) that causes stillborn piglets costed the US farmers US$ 600 million. Disease free and healthy animals are therefore likely to result in safer food supplies, higher farm productivity, reduced environmental impacts, reduced use of antibiotics.

Market Insights

Increased Adoption of Pets for Companionship

The adoption of pets is a significant animal healthcare market trend. More than 67% of American households own pets, totaling almost 400 million pets, including dogs, cats, horses, birds, and fish. As per American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, ~6.5 million companion animals enter the countrywide animal shelters every year. The number of dogs and cats entering these shelters yearly has declined from ~7.2 million in 2011. This decline can be moderately explained by an increase in the percentage of animals adopted. As per the European Pet Food Industry Federation (FEDIAF), cats remain the most popular pets in European households with a stable population of 74.4 million in the region. Also, the popularity of dogs is growing as there were 66.4 million pet dogs in the EU (84.9 million in Europe and Russia) in 2017, compared to 63.7 million (82.2 million) in 2016.

Americans spent over US$ 75.5 billion on their pets in 2016, with an average total household expenditure of US$ 892 on pet food, veterinary services, supplies, and other services. Pets improve their owners’ overall health and well-being, and may help them live longer. Research shows dog owners have a 36% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and an 11% lower risk of a heart attack. Hence, the trend toward the adoption of pets is likely to drive the market growth in the study 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.
