Animal Vaccine Market Dynamics


Increase in livestock production boosting the market growth

In livestock farming, veterinary vaccinations increase overall productivity and ensure animal health. More efficient livestock production and improved access to high-quality protein are required to feed the world's growing population. According to an FAO High-Level Expert Forum, overall food production will need to increase by 70% between 2005 and 2050 to feed a predicted global population of 9.1 billion people, and vaccinations that protect animal health and increase supply are critical components in meeting this goal. Furthermore, they reduce the need for antimicrobials to treat infections in food-producing and companion animals, as there are growing concerns about antibiotic resistance linked to the introduction of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine, as well as their ability to eliminate the thinning of organisms causing foodborne illness in humans boosting the market growth in the forecast period.


Stringent regulatory regulations restrict the industry’s growth

A drug regulatory authority (DRA) ensures that all medicinal products are of acceptable quality, safety, and efficacy, that they are manufactured and distributed in such a way that their quality is maintained until they reach the consumer, and that valid commercial promotion is certified. DRAs' primary responsibilities include licensing products, inspecting and licensing manufacturers and distributors, conducting post-marketing surveillance, regulating claims made for the commercial promotion of products, and authorizing clinical trials. Receiving marketing approval for new vaccines from these regulatory agencies is costly and time-consuming; the financial position of companies involved in vaccine development is heavily influenced by their ability to obtain or maintain regulatory approvals.


Increasing animal illness provides lucrative opportunities for the animal vaccine

As the number of animals suffering from various diseases rises, so does the demand for vaccines to prevent and treat such diseases, propelling the veterinary vaccines market. According to Animal and Plant Health Agency estimates, a total of 3289 new TB herd incidents were detected in England. Bovine tuberculosis is a chronic disease typically affecting cattle, but it can affect all mammals, causing general illness, coughing, and eventually death. However, the condition can be treated with antibiotics that kill the tuberculosis bacteria. During the forecast period, the rising prevalence of diseases in animals is expected to drive the veterinary vaccines market.

Increase in the number of R&D activities and the introduction of new products

An increase in research and development activities for designing an effective, efficient, and high-quality vaccine for companion and farm animals, as well as the launch of new products, will provide beneficial opportunities for the veterinary-animal vaccines market. Furthermore, technological advancements in the development of animal health vaccines, as well as an increase in the number of emerging markets, will provide additional opportunities for the growth of the veterinary-animal vaccines market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the increasing number of cattle and poultry in developing countries, as well as advancements in healthcare technology, will accelerate the growth rate of the veterinary-animal vaccines market in the future.

Product Insights

Attenuated live vaccines dominated the market

In 2022, the attenuated live vaccines segment dominated the animal vaccines market, accounting for more than 36% of revenue. The oldest vaccination method used in the veterinary field is live attenuation. This method is also being tested for the Development of new applications. Some of these alternatives include the Development of intramuscular protein subunit vaccines for swine. These products help to reduce mortality and increase the life span of diseased vermin.

Over the forecast period, the recombinant vaccine segment is expected to grow rapidly. These vaccines aid in lowering the risk of pathogenicity in animals following vaccination. Because recombinant vaccines can carry multiple gene inserts, they are expected to aid in the immunization against multiple virus strains. These vaccine formulations can eliminate the need for adjuvants, increase vaccine viability, and improve vaccine stability. Vaccines against canine distemper, pseudorabies, Newcastle disease, Lyme disease, and avian influenza are among the recombinant vaccines available for veterinary medicine.

Animal Type Insights

The livestock segment dominated the market

In 2022, the livestock segment dominated the market with a more than 71% revenue share. This can be attributed to the increased livestock population, supportive government initiatives, and disease outbreaks in cattle and sheep. Merck & Co., Inc. has developed vaccines to prevent E. coli, including Aviguard and Nobilis E. coli. Prevalence rates in various cattle categories (feedlot cattle, cattle on irrigated pasture, cattle at slaughter, and cattle grazing rangeland forages) range from 0.2% to 27.8%, according to Zoetis. The companion segment is expected to grow the fastest during the forecast period. Canine distemper virus is carried by both house pets and ferrets and requires only preventive vaccination because there is no post-infection treatment.

The Morbillivirus causes distemper in dogs, foxes, raccoons, and wolves and is spread through the air and other modes of contact between infected and healthy animals. Canine distemper is fatal because it destroys the respiratory, urogenital, and gastrointestinal tracts. Dogs with gastrointestinal tract bacterial infections and newborn puppies are more vulnerable to this disease. A few canine distemper vaccines on the market include Vanguard, DHPPi/L Vaccine, DHP, and Megavac.
