Anticoccidial Drugs Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global anticoccidial drugs market is expected to have a growth rate of 3.61% CAGR from 2022 to 2027. As a result, the market is anticipated to grow by USD 1632.99 Million by 2027. 

Coccidian protozoa cause coccidiosis. It is a parasitic disease in the intestinal tract of the animal. The disease spreads from one animal to another by contact with infected tissue or feces. Although most animals are asymptomatic in the spread of this infection, immuno-compromised animals may suffer from severity and death. Therefore, anticoccidial drugs are manufactured with hygienic measures to prevent or control coccidiosis. Coccidiosis is a disease that damages mucosal and submucosal tissues in the intestinal tract of animals and birds.

A few of the key findings from the report:

  • Based on the Drug type, the ionophore anticoccidials segment had the largest market share of the global anticoccidial drugs market in 2021.
  • The North American anticoccidial drugs market dominated the market in 2021. The market in this region was valued at USD 451.70 million in 2021.
  • The Asia-Pacific anticoccidial drugs market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.49% from 2022 to 2027.
  • The European anticoccidial drugs market is estimated to grow by USD 472.75 million by 2027.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global anticoccidial drugs market:

The disease has spread to almost every country globally since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, prompting the World Health Organization to declare it a public health emergency. Coccidiosis is a viral disease caused by a single-cell parasite that can only be seen under a microscope. It affects the intestinal tracts of animals. Weight loss, moderate sporadic to extreme diarrhea, diarrhea containing blood or mucus, dehydration, and decreased breeding are all signs of coccidiosis, one of the most common parasitic diseases in domesticated animals. Growing clinical trials in developing medicines or vaccines for animals to prevent infections propels this market's growth rate to new heights. Anticoccidial drugs are drug preparations used to treat coccidiosis in animals. These are given to animals and birds to stop coccidia from reproducing and destroying protozoa in the intestine. In some countries, the transmission of coronavirus from humans to animals boosts the market's growth rate during these pandemic times. In addition, key strategies and increasing awareness of social distancing and wearing masks among market players are expected to boost demand for anticoccidial drugs during the forecast period.


Y-O-Y growth in the prevalence of coccidiosis and increasing focus on animal health primarily accelerates the global anticoccidial drugs market.

Anticoccidial drugs are the agents used to treat, prevent, and control coccidial infections. However, there is a risk of increased coccidiosis due to environmental factors and others, such as contamination or other issues related to hygienic measures. Hence, there is an alarming demand for newer anticoccidial drugs in the drug market. Increasing the need to prevent the spread of diseases in animals with effective medication and the rise in the consumption rate of meat and poultry products are the primary reasons driving the growth of the global anticoccidial drugs market.

The growing number of veterinary hospitals, rise in the demand to improve the quality of drugs with different techniques, growing disposable income in urban areas, and people's concern towards maintaining a healthy diet are further helping the global anticoccidial drugs market to grow.

Additionally, growing support from the government through investments, the rising demand to increase the production rate of drugs with high quality, and increasing concern towards animals' health conditions further accelerate market growth. Furthermore, the adoption of the latest technology, the launch of valuable products, and the rising number of infectious diseases among animals and birds are expected to fuel the growth opportunities for the global anticoccidial drugs market.


However, the lack of skilled persons in manufacturing appropriate drugs with correct dosage forms slowly restricts the global anticoccidial drug market demand. In addition, the availability of other drugs at a lower cost and fluctuations in the prices of final products due to less availability of raw materials are expected to limit the growth of the global anticoccidial drugs market.
