The parasites are harmful to the animals in disease-causing and spread the disease quickly to other animals or humans.


increasing demand to raise the production rate of animal healthcare products, growing investments in veterinary hospitals by government and non-governmental institutes, the rise in the incidences of various health disorders in animals are expected to drive the global animal parasiticides market.

During the forecast period, increasing private sector investments, rising zoonotic disease concerns, regulations aimed at preventing the spread of animal diseases, the growth of the companion animal industry, and rising animal health expenditure are expected to propel the animal parasiticides market forward. Communities worldwide are calling for greater agricultural and animal-production sustainability as a result of climate change and the rising demand for high-quality animal products.

Several drugs and vaccines that are easily accessible to farmers have been produced to control parasitic infections. Benzimidazole, Levamisole, and Macrocyclic lactones, for instance, are readily available anthelmintic drugs for treating gut-type infections. Consumer awareness of improved veterinary care methods has raised the demand for advanced drugs, resulting in better growth opportunities for major market players over the forecast period.

In terms of global animal parasiticide market growth, Asia-Pacific is expected to maintain its dominance. The growing trend toward pet adoption has had a significant impact on the industry. Latin American regions have higher growth opportunities than the rest of the world. APAC and Latin America are expected to rise faster than the rest of the world due to rising GDP and per capita spending on animal health.

Growing tendency to provide quality treatment for the animals, increasing prevalence for the launch of new products with advanced technology, the rising demand to improve the quality of poultry products, and the rise in zoonotic diseases are other essential causes fuelling the need for animal parasiticides market.


However, fluctuations in the availability of raw materials in manufacturing the final products in the pharmaceutical companies are slowly restraining the market demand. Stringent rules and regulations by the government is another major factor hampering the growth rate of the animal parasiticides market.

One of the major challenges for players in this market is accounting for the diversity of parasitic species when developing successful medications and parasiticides. The demand for animal parasiticides in the Middle East and Africa is being challenged by an increase in the number of vegetarians and vegans and stringent limits on the acceptance of these medicines.

Impact of Covid-19 on the global animal parasiticides market:

COVID-19 is an unprecedented global public health crisis that has impacted almost every sector, with long-term consequences expected to stifle industry growth over the forecast period. Although human-to-human transmission of the COVID-19 virus has been confirmed, evidence of the virus infecting animals is limited. Domestic animals can become infected by the virus if they come into close contact with infected humans. It is supposed to have far-reaching ramifications for animal care and welfare. Leading players have ensured that their supply chains are not affected in terms of output. For example, Zoetis, Inc. has confirmed no direct effect on its anti-parasitic drug supply. The company is keeping a close eye on the situation and has taken a variety of preventative measures. Thus, the coronavirus pandemic has had little effect on the market for animal parasiticides. The industry is growing gradually, barring minor disruptions in raw material supplies. Animal parasiticides have been designated as essential products, ensuring a steady supply. To keep up with deliveries even during quarantines and lockdowns, manufacturers mainly invest in telework capabilities and improve distribution networks.
