Global Markets for Animal Therapeutics and Diagnostics

Press Release   •   Feb 20, 2017 14:07 IST

The global market for animal therapeutics and diagnostics totaled nearly $40.1 billion in 2016 and should total $47.9 billion in 2021, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.6% for the period 2016-2021.



The study includes information about significant products, players, issues and trends, and other information affecting the animal therapeutics and diagnostics market.


The animal health industry is responsible for maintaining the health and productivity of the more than 3 billion livestock and more than 50 billion poultry worldwide and ensuring the wholesomeness and abundance of the food it produces. In addition, the industry must also cater to the health and well-being of companion animals. Despite this, the human healthcare market is 30 times larger than the combined market for all nonhuman species. The reality is that the global animal health market is very complex, operating under stringent and increasingly strict regulations similar to those for human health, yet the market opportunities are considerably smaller. In an increasingly risky environment for new product development, the difference between success and failure in the future usually lies in successfully identifying the next growth segment, developing the right product candidates and being the first to market. Despite all these risks, the industry continues to grow.

In contrast to human blockbuster-oriented pharmaceuticals, animal health is dominated by a large number of products with small revenues. Although there are hundreds of products offered in the animal health market, only a couple dozen products have sales exceeding $100 million per year. However, the industry continues to forge on. The fastest growing therapeutic categories are in the area of companion animals, specifically in the allergy and respiratory and arthritis and pain segments of the market.

A challenging aspect of the animal health market is within the animal food industry as consumers continue to express concern about the conditions under which their daily food is produced. Consumers are becoming more health conscious and demanding healthy and balanced diets. The growing trend of natural and organic food is creating a niche market opportunity for suppliers. By implementing a feeding plan that provides vitamins and supplements, consumers enjoy additional nutritional benefits. Additionally, healthy feeding results in minimized impact on the environment.
