APAC Anticoccidial Drugs Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The anticoccidial drugs market size in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to reach USD 536.85 million by 2028 from USD 433.07 Million in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 4.39% from 2023 to 2028.

The APAC market for anticoccidial drugs is driven by factors such as the rising incidence of Coccidiosis in food-producing and companion animals, increased prophylactic use of anticoccidial drugs, and increased demand for meat proteins, as well as increased awareness about animal health around the region. Furthermore, fewer rigorous regulations and increased government investment in companion animals aid the anticoccidial medicines market's expansion. 

The Anticoccidial drugs market expansion in the Asia Pacific is further fueled by increased coccidiosis prevalence, innovations in veterinary healthcare, and innovative animal healthcare product releases, particularly in the companion animal sector. The increased need for anticoccidial medications is due to the growing popularity of companion animals such as dogs, cats, and even horses, which are susceptible to Coccidiosis and, if left untreated, can result in death. In addition, over the forecast period, increased demand for animal proteins is expected to boost the market. Furthermore, it is due to rapid population expansion, which increased meat exports and, as a result, indirectly raised the demand for veterinary care. 

According to the WHO, the cattle sector is under increasing pressure to meet the rising demand for high-value animal protein. The market for anticoccidial drugs in the Asia Pacific was overgrowing due to significant advancements in veterinary care and increased government initiatives. The number of oocytes devoured and the coccidia population defines the severity of the condition. Anticoccidial drugs prevent the spread of Coccidiosis in animals and birds. Anticoccidials are used in feed to avoid disease and lessen the financial impact of subacute infections.

Adopting alternative treatments for Coccidiosis, such as vaccines and herbal cures, is anticipated to stifle the Asia Pacific market for anticoccidial drugs. In addition, the availability of other treatment alternatives on the market, the large sums of money invested in treating and preventing Coccidiosis, and the infections' increasing resistance are all projected to slow market growth.

The market for anticoccidial pharmaceuticals in the Asia Pacific is expected to hold a substantial share of the worldwide market during the forecast period owing to the growing advancements in veterinary healthcare and increased government initiatives. As a result, major pharmaceutical companies are now outsourcing medication development to countries like China, Singapore, Malaysia, and India, propelling the anticoccidial drugs market. Furthermore, in expanding economies like India and China, disposable income rises, resulting in a shift in lifestyle and increased demand for animal protein sources like meat and milk. Therefore, veterinary pharmacy needs are projected to increase as disposable income rises. 

The China anticoccidial drugs market had a significant share of the APAC market in 2021. However, the Chinese market is characterized by many small players, both in terms of meat production and antimicrobial agent production. As a result, it has sparked a pricing war since these low-cost alternatives give international corporations a run for their money.
