Market Overview

The Veterinary API Manufacturing Market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.10% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 epidemic has had a significant impact on the market. There have been a few COVID-19 infections in pets around the world. COVID-19 is caused by a virus that can be transmitted from people to animals through intimate contact. COVID-19 is unlikely to transmit from animals to humans. Infection with the virus that causes COVID-19 can cause significant sickness in pets, but this is quite rare. Thus, the COVID-19 infection increased the chances of infections in many animals which is expected to drive the market growth.

The factors expected to drive the market growth include the increasing prevalence of zoonotic diseases, increasing animal population and pet ownership, and rising number of veterinarians and veterinary visits. The market is highly propelled by the increasing pet expenditures and number of veterinary visits and high prevalence of zoonotic diseases. Human-animal connection is necessary for existence and cannot be removed soon, making zoonoses easier to spread. Human-animal cohabitation is more common in poorer nations, particularly among rural populations. This inextricable relationship is evidenced by the higher occurrence of zoonoses in these countries. The Indian Journal of Medical Research in 2021 stated that animals are responsible for 70% of emerging infectious diseases; every year, 5 new diseases are generated, three of which are of animal origin, and zoonotic infections account for 80% of agents with potential bioterrorism use. This expected to support market growth.

The need for veterinary Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients is expanding as the variety of oral formulations for diverse veterinary medications grows. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) are the most common. Process synthesis, which aids in the acceleration of the manufacturing process for active medicinal components, is becoming more popular among manufacturers. In addition, the emergence of biologically produced and high potency APIs, which act on target cells with a significantly lower dose than typical APIs, is projected to drive market expansion.

Supportive government policies are driving the manufacturing of veterinary active pharmaceutical ingredients. For instance, initiatives, such as Pharma Vision 2020 by the Indian government, which is aimed at developing the country’s capabilities in the fields of drug discovery, innovation, and drug manufacturing, is expected to have a positive impact on the political scenario of the market. 

Market players are implementing several strategic initiatives such as geographical expansion. For instance, in November 2020, Ofichem Group expanded with a new office in Hangzhou, China. This supported the company’s growth strategy. In May 2018, Zoetis expanded its manufacturing and supply facility in Kalamazoo to provide high-quality medicines for veterinarian and livestock farmer customers. This is expected to fuel the market growth.

Key Market Trends

The Vaccine Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Veterinary API Manufacturing Market

The increased need for vaccines due to the high frequency of chronic diseases in animals is credited with the segment's growth. Furthermore, rising livestock populations and animal husbandry, as well as the commercialization of animal products, are likely to raise vaccine demand, propelling the segment forward. The increased demand for animal-derived food products is driving the expansion of this market, as is the rise in the companion animal population, rising prevalence of zoonotic diseases, and activities by various government agencies and animal groups to protect animal health. The high storage cost of vaccinations, on the other hand, is limiting market expansion.

The rising number of cattle disease outbreaks and the ever-increasing livestock population are the primary reasons for ruminants' widespread popularity. Meat, protein, food, milk, and other commercial items such as wool and leather are all derived from animals. Rabies vaccinations, equine influenza virus vaccines, and foot and mouth disease vaccines are the most commonly used animal vaccines, which inhibit the transfer of infectious pathogens by replicating naturally acquired immunity. Growing worries about food security, as well as increased animal husbandry, are driving up demand for livestock vaccines. Globally, increased demand for animal products has resulted in increased livestock output.

The demand for animal products is increasing due to several causes such as changing food choices as a result of changing lifestyles and population increase. These elements are assisting the market's expansion. The constant development of technologically superior vaccines, as well as the spread of cattle diseases, have all contributed to changing market dynamics.

Veterinary Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Manufacturing Market Share

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

North America is expected to hold a major market share in the global Veterinary API Manufacturing Market. Zoonoses pose a concern to human health because animals are frequently the natural source of disease. The rising frequency of zoonotic diseases is a major factor driving market expansion. 

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, there were 103.0 million cattle and 32.1 million beef cows in the U.S. in July 2020, and this number is expected to grow substantially in the coming years. Moreover, factors such as rise in R&D investments, advancements in procedures, high pet adoption rates, increased consumption of meat, and mandatory vaccination are anticipated to boost the market growth during the forecast period.

Favorable reimbursement programs are boosting demand for veterinary medication, giving the industry in this region a solid foundation for growth. The high frequency of livestock and zoonotic illnesses, which result in large-scale animal mortality, can lead to large lose. In addition, the market is predicted to rise due to the huge number of well-established pharmaceutical companies that are continually working to expand the commercialization of their vaccines and expand their geographic reach. 

Furthermore, the rising frequency of canine illnesses, which is raising vaccination adoption for the same, and the growing pet population in the United States are two significant factors contributing to the regional market's rise. The expanding popularity of pets, the development of leading vaccination players, increased product availability, and investments in manufacturing facilities in the region are all supporting this market's growth.
