The Chinese animal vaccine market has been forecast to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15% over the next four years, increasing from a value of approximately RMB 9.1 billion by the end of 2012, to reach a total of RMB 15.9 billion by 2016.
This is at a slower rate than previous years, as the 2004 to 2012 period saw CAGR growth of over 26%.
In 2012, among domestic leading animal vaccine enterprises, China Animal Husbandry Industry Co., Ltd. made the highest animal vaccine revenue of RMB 1.17 billion, with market occupancy up to 12.9%; followed by Qingdao Yebio Bioengineering Co., Ltd (Zhejiang Shenghua Biok Biology Co., Ltd holds 38% stake), Xinjiang Tecon Animal Husbandry Bio-Technology Co., Ltd., Guangdong Dahuanong Animal Health Products Co., Ltd., and Inner Mongolia Jinyu Group Stock Company.
Chinese animal vaccine products include swine vaccine, poultry vaccine, cattle & sheep vaccine, pet and other vaccines. As pig and poultry breeding is the core of China's animal husbandry, swine and poultry vaccines account for more than 85% of China's animal vaccine market.
In addition, the emerging pet industry is boosting vigorous growth in demand for pet vaccine, while there are few commercial pet vaccines from Chinese animal vaccine companies, mainly dependent on imported products with stiff prices. In future, the Chinese pet vaccine market will usher in large room for promotion.
The Chinese animal vaccine market can be divided into two segments, i.e. government-procured compulsory immunization vaccines and market-oriented vaccines. Currently, there are merely five kinds of compulsory immunization vaccines, and more vaccines are market-oriented.
However, in China, compulsory immunization vaccines still hold a market share of over 50%, with highly fierce competition but limited growth potential; by contrast, market-oriented vaccines will enjoy a larger space for development no matter in new product development or in animal protection improvement.
