Key Market Trends

Parasiticides Represents High Growth Opportunities for Farm Animal Healthcare, Over the Forecast Period

Parasiticides are in high demand, for treating many diseases in farm animals. With the growth of the animal husbandry industry, an excess increase in demand in veterinary pharmaceuticals is expected. Animals are more likely to get infected by internal parasites, which are commonly inclusive of hairworms, lungworms, liver flukes, and coccidia. The external parasites that can be harmful to the animals include, horn flies, lice, and grubs. The parasitic diseases in animals cause disturbed health condition and reproduction, impaired growth, and decreased productivity.

Therefore, parasiticides are inevitable for the better animal health. The commonly used parasiticides are levamisole, fenbendazole, oxfendazole, albendazole, moxidectin, eprinomectin, etc. Most of the key players are focusing on innovation in parasiticide products, in order to develop advanced oral dosage forms of parasiticides. For example, in November 2019, Ceva had launched Salmoporc, a salmonella vaccine for pigs, in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Salmoporc gives protection against Salmonella Typhimurium and its monophasic variants. It is administered orally to piglets and through subcutaneous injection in sows.. This has increased the market growth opportunity for the company in different countries.

The United States is one of the most developed economies across the world. It currently holds the major share of the farm animal healthcare market, and it is expected to follow the same trend over the forecast period. The federal regulation of the United States and the state regulations are responsible for the registration and introduction of the new animal healthcare products in the country.

Boehringer Ingelheim, in 2018, launched a poultry vaccine product, HatchPak IB H120TM NeO, a freeze-dried live attenuated virus of Bronchitis disease, to simplify the vaccination of chicks against the bronchitis virus. In addition to, in June 2020, Huvepharma EOOD, received an US FDA approval for it's product "Vetmulin12.5%", an antibiotic used for the treatment of swine dysentery.
