Introduction of Novel Products is Boosting Global Animal Parasite Treatment Market Demand

The growing emphasis on novel product development and launches is one of the major drivers of the market.

North America Holds Significant Share in the Global Animal Parasite Treatment Market

The growth of the market in North America can be attributed to the strong presence of various key market players, the rise of pet adoption in the United States of America and Canada and increasing awareness about the various parasites and their treatments. The rising adoption of companion animals in the region can be attributed to the growing awareness about the various emotional benefits provided by them. The growing adoption of companion animals is supported by a rise in mental health conditions. The Progressive Animal Welfare Services (PAWS) estimates that one in five Canadians live with some form of mental illness. The Mental Health Commission of Canada estimates that approximately 23% of the country’s population will be suffering from some mental illness by 2041. Several studies show a strong correlation between adopting a pet and improved mental health, with many emphasizing the mental health benefits of pet ownership. Pets, such as dogs and cats, provide companionship, unconditional love, and emotional support, which can alleviate feelings of loneliness, reduce stress, and boost mood.

Ectoparasiticides Are Expected to Witness Increase in Demand

The rising threat of ticks, mites, and fleas is boosting the demand for ectoparasiticides globally. Ectoparasites affect the skin of animals and can impact the production of animal products such as wool, silk, leather, and many others. The usage of ectoparasiticides is regulated by various governing bodies in different countries. In the United States, the use of ectoparasiticides is regulated by EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Pour-ons are considered to be more effective against lice infestations (Haematopinus and Linognathus) as compared to equivalent compounds that are administered parenterally. This large consumption of animal-based products, including milk and meat, in various regions across the globe due to the various nutritional benefits offered by the food substances is augmenting the utilization of ectoparasiticides by cattle owners.

Future Market Scenario (2024–2031F)

As per the global animal parasite treatment market analysis, the market demand is expected to witness a significant increase owing to the rise in pet adoption, growing awareness about the various parasite treatment options and their preventive measures, increasing requirement for eco-friendly treatment options, and increasing collaborations to support novel product development. The requirement for treatment solutions that offer efficacy for longer periods of time is expected to rise as they aid in reducing the burden of treatment on livestock and pet owners. Additionally, due to the growing threat of climate change, a shift in preference for eco-friendly solutions is being witnessed across various industries, including animal parasite treatments. Thus, efforts towards the development of eco-friendly treatment solutions are increasing. Partnerships between various organizations are expected to boost such developments. For instance, the partnership between the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and Boehringer Ingelheim is expected to bolster the development of parasiticides.
