Animal Disinfectants Market Trends

  • The growing incidence of livestock diseases is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for animal disinfectants is driven by the rising number of livestock diseases. Over the past years, there has been an increase in the incidence of livestock diseases; this can be ascribed to rising livestock numbers and meat exports, which have caused the diseases to spread to new areas. The World Organisation for Animal Health has compiled a comprehensive list of illnesses affecting all cattle types. Currently, lumpy skin disease (LSD), which has evolved into a transboundary animal disease, poses a threat to at least 24 nations in South Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia. Authorities have devised protocols and SOPs to reduce the consequences of such livestock diseases through programs for farmers, notably Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of the US Department of Agriculture. The welfare of animals has improved, as has their value to farmers.

The prevalent consumer view is that synthetic formulations are hazardous, so farmers try to avoid them and use biological alternatives. The categorization of formaldehyde as a potential carcinogen and the subsequent modification of regulatory criteria in developed markets are important drivers of the need for biological disinfectants. While maintaining the advantages of chemical disinfectants, such as a broad-spectrum mode of action, biological disinfectants do not leave any residue. However, the two crucial issues that must be solved for the full-fledged emergence of biological disinfectants are cost factors and accessibility. Thus, driving the animal disinfectants market revenue.
