Global Animal Pharmaceuticals Market is Driven by Increasing Zoonotic and Food Borne Diseases

The global animal pharmaceuticals market was valued at $12,614.3 million in 2015, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% during 2016 – 2022. The growth of the global market is largely driven by increasing consumption of meat and milk, and increasing zoonotic and food borne diseases. Due to growing health concern of related animals and their increasing number, the healthcare expenses in farms are surging globally. Animal farms are increasing globally, due to growing demand for protein rich foods, such as milk, eggs and meat. Increasing trend of pet adoption is another key factor driving the growth of the global market. The declining research and development productivity and growth of generic and OTC drugs for animal care are the key trend witnessed in the global market. The declining research and development productivity is leading to the maturity of animal pharmaceutical product portfolio. The fewer new chemical entity approvals are limiting the opportunities for key manufacturers to expand their portfolio in animal pharmaceuticals market. The low productivity of research and development increases the competition among the key manufacturers.
