logo Growth Drivers

  • Growing rate of pet ownership to act as the main growth trigger

The global animal healthcare market is projected to grow owing to the increasing rate at which the general population is owning pets which includes a wide range of animals and is not only limited to dogs and cats although the market is currently dominated by them. As the world is moving toward rapid urbanization and commercialization, a lot of people are looking for companionship since it is easy to lose a sense of belonging when living in large cities where their lives revolve around corporate well-being.

Humans are social animals and the sense of feeling loved is a common trait amongst humans. Animals have, for a long, been loyal companions to humans either in pet form or as livestock. However, the trend has now reached urban populations as well and people are willing to spend thousands of dollars on the welfare of their pets.

logo Restraints

  • High cost of medical care to restrict market expansion

Veterinary medical care can end up costing up to thousands of dollars and this is especially applicable to certain animal types and their medical history. People with limited financial resources may find it difficult to keep up with the ever-rising prices of animal care in terms of medicines or feed.

For instance, the average monthly cost of owning a small dog can be around USD 43 and in case the animals contract cancer, the radiation therapy can cost between USD 2500 to USD 7000 depending on the cancer stage and animal breed.

logo Opportunities

  • Veterinary care advancements to promote further growth

With the aid of technology adoption, the global animal healthcare industry is expected to witness higher growth opportunities as the veterinary medicine segment works toward improving the animal care experience. The fraternity is witnessing a surge in investments directed toward investing in new diagnostic tools, drugs, and surgical techniques which could become the answer to many unsolved problems in the animal medical care segment. As the global industry registers high pet ownership and people become more responsible toward proper animal care, the demand for advanced tools and mechanisms is expected to grow.

logo Challenges

  • Antibiotic resistance acts as a major challenge for players

One of the growing concerns in the sector is the increasing number of cases showcasing antibiotic resistance in animals. This is mostly due to the overuse of antibiotics that has led to the development of bacteria that resists the impact of many versions of antibiotics. This can greatly limit the growth of the global market as pet owners may lose confidence in veterinary medicine and animal care. Furthermore, companies would be required to invest higher in research & development to ensure the development of a solution for such issues.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global animal healthcare market is segmented based on animal type, product, distribution channel, and region

Based on animal type, the global market is divided into companion and farm

  • In 2022, the farm segment generated the highest revenue
  • However, it is important to note that both segments are significant contributors to the global industry and have high growth potential during the forecast period
  • The dominance of the farm segment was generally due to the high number of animals that need medical care or other assistance as compared to companion animals
  • Furthermore, they require routine treatment and preventive care since farm animals directly influence the ecosystems, and products derived from them are sold in the commercial market
  • In 2021, New Zealand’s milk export market was valued at USD 7.81 billion

Based on product, the global market is segmented into vaccines, feed, veterinary equipment, pharmaceuticals, and others.

Based on distribution channel, the global market segments are veterinary hospitals & clinics, e-commerce, retail, and others

  • Veterinary hospitals and clinics, followed by e-commerce were the largest contributors to the global fraternity
  • In developed economies, veterinary clinics are the most trusted distribution channel since they have the bandwidth to cater to the massive demand of the industry
  • Furthermore, these units are generally always in full stock in terms of animal vaccines, drugs, and other types of supplement
  • The e-commerce and retail segment is highly popular for animal feed due to the availability of more options
  • The average cost of first-year vaccinations in dogs can reach up to a minimum value of USD 115

logo Regional Analysis

  • North America to continue with the dominance

The global animal healthcare market is projected to register the highest growth in North America as it has in previous years. The regional growth is a consequence of the already existing high number of pet owners which is growing annually. Furthermore, the high disposable income of the population group allows them to spend extra on animal care as pet care is an important cultural aspect of the region. In addition to this, the growing initiatives by government agencies along with animal welfare agencies to promote medical care for stray animals are an important segment contributing to higher revenue.

The region has one of the world's most organized systems for managing stray animals or lost pets. The well-equipped veterinary care of the US and Canada are equally responsible for high regional revenue. Growth in Europe is anticipated to be driven by similar reasons along with the presence of supportive infrastructure promoting animal care.
