Key Market Trends

Application in Poultry is Expected to Register a High CAGR

Good poultry health management is an important component of poultry production. Infectious disease-causing agents spread through flock very quickly because of the high stocking densities of commercially housed poultry. For poultry health management to be effective a primary aim must be to prevent the onset of disease or parasites, to recognize at an early stage the presence of disease or parasites, and to treat all flocks that are diseased or infested with parasites as soon as possible and before they develop into a serious condition or spread to other flocks.

This poultry healthcare is important as the production is increasing in North America. As per a 2019 report by the United States Department of Agriculture, the production from broilers, eggs, turkeys, and the value of sales from chickens have continuously increased in the United States over the past many years. This is due to more population preferring chicken and other poultry products or other meats like beef, especially in developed countries like the United States and Canada. This is expected to increase the demand for poultry healthcare, which will increase market growth.
