Market Overview

Certain factors that are responsible for the growth of the companion animal healthcare market are increasing pet adoption across the world, rising government initiatives for animal health, and growing technological advancements in animal healthcare.

The popular nuclear family trend across the world has accelerated pet ownership and is expected to continue during the forecast period.

Over the years, the trend of imbuing pets with human characteristics has increased the health and safety concerns among pet owners. According to a survey conducted by the American Veterinary Medical Association, in recent years, the expenditure on pet’s health and veterinary care has witnessed an increase of 40%. This increase is a result of the growing human-animal bond, which defines consumers’ willingness to spend more money on their pets. Further, the rising demand for pet healthcare insurance in the United States is expected to support this argument.

Scope of the Report

Companion animals provide companionship to human beings, as well as guard their houses and offices. Currently, the various types of health diseases in animals have increased the demand for vaccines and diagnostic tests. This surge in demand is primarily due to the need to treat and cure a variety of diseases associated with the health of cats and dogs.

Key Market Trends

Vaccines are Expected to Dominate the Therapeutics Segment

The three major types of vaccines available for companion animals are:

  • inactivated (killed) vaccines, which contain bacteria and virus that are grown in cultures and then killed by heating or chemical treatments,
  • live attenuated vaccines, which contain live viruses or bacteria that have been severely weakened, and
  • subunit vaccines, which contain viral or bacterial antigens that can trigger an immune response. 

Some of the common diseases in dogs are canine parvovirus, canine distemper, parainfluenza, and diseases, such as feline viral rhinotracheitis, feline calicivirus, and feline panleukopenia, are common among cats. These diseases can be cured by vaccines. Thus, an increase in the number of diseases is expected to augment the growth of the vaccines market for companion animals.
