Market Dynamics:

Market Drivers

  • Rising zoonotic and chronic diseases in animals

    • Increasing zoonotic and chronic diseases among animals affect human interests widely. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), eight types of zoonotic diseases can be transmitted from animals to humans, including zoonotic influenza, Lyme disease, salmonellosis, brucellosis, severe acute respiratory syndrome, the Middle East respiratory syndrome, West Nile virus, rabies, and plague. Zoonotic infections can readily be transmitted to humans working in close contact with animals.

    • As per the World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, approximately 59,000 human deaths occur each year by rabies virus across the globe. The spread of such diseases is contributing to the rising demand for animal vaccines. Furthermore, one of the main reasons for the growing number of chronic diseases is the increasing life expectancy of pets due to the developed healthcare facilities and good nutrition.

  • Increasing emphasis on animal healthcare and vaccination

  • Increased consumption of Animal-based products

Market Restraints

  • Stringent regulatory guidelines and high storage costs associated with animal vaccines

    • Stringent regulatory guidelines on vaccine approval are major challenges in the market's growth. United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are some of the major regulatory bodies reviewing and approving veterinary medicines in the US. While in the European Union, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) is the leading body involved in the approval of animal health-related products. All authorized vaccines are required to undergo a stringent regulatory approval process before they are marketed.

    • These approvals help to ensure that animal vaccines meet the required safety, quality, and efficacy. Vaccine efficacy and safety are monitored after they are approved and used in animals through a surveillance system in which any adverse occurrences can be reported to the vaccine's Market Authorisation Holder (MAH). Hence, the high storage cost of vaccines and stringent regulatory guidelines on vaccine approval is restraining animal vaccines market growth.

Market Opportunities

  • Rising investments in veterinary hospitals to improve animal health

    • The rise in spending on veterinary hospitals to ensure quality services provides a lucrative growth opportunity for the market. The increasing adoption of farm and companion animals globally has driven animal hospitals and clinics by the increasing per capita income, the spending of pet and livestock owners on the wellbeing of the animals have increased considerably in the recent past. As per the American Pet Products Association, in 2020, it was estimated that around USD 103.6 billion was spent on pets in the US, up from USD 97.1 billion in 2019.

    • Moreover, the future of animal health depends on technological advancement in animal health and superior patient care, the development of new products, and the collaborative development of vaccines. Pet owners are spending a higher amount to seek the best available treatments for their companions. This has led to an increase in investment in veterinary hospitals. In addition, governments across the globe are spending a significant amount on veterinary hospitals.

Segment Overview
The global animal vaccines market is segmented into type, technology, and region.
By Type

  • Porcine Vaccines

    • Porcine vaccines contain antigens from viruses, bacteria, bacterial toxins, or parasites. These vaccines are given to pigs generally by injection to stimulate an immune response, which protects against natural infection with the organism from which the vaccine was derived. Porcine vaccines commonly used on pig farms around the globe include erysipelas, parvovirus infection (SMEDI syndrome), clostridial dysentery of piglets, E. coli diarrhea, enzootic pneumonia caused by Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, necrotic pleuropneumonia caused by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, and atrophic rhinitis caused by toxigenic Pasteurella multocida. These vaccines can be inactivated, containing only killed organisms, or live, containing living organisms.

  • Poultry Vaccines

    • Poultry vaccines increase disease defense power in the poultry body. There are various types of poultry vaccines, including live vaccines, attenuated vaccines, and killed vaccines. Some of the vaccines used in the poultry farms are the BCRDV vaccine, RDV vaccine, Gumboro live vaccines, Gumboro dead vaccines, and cholera vaccine. Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health offers a Volvac Line of poultry vaccines, protection against respiratory, immune, and enteric diseases.

  • Livestock Vaccines

    • Vaccines help in the reduction of losses when used correctly to prevent disease in livestock animals. Potential benefits of the vaccine include improved animal welfare and public health. The presence of a few bacterial, viral, and protozoan-borne diseases severely impacts the productivity of livestock. Timely vaccination prevents the risk of infection as well as affects a farmer's income through livestock rearing.

  • Companion Animal Vaccines

    • Companion animals suffer from a range of infectious diseases.  The diseases controlled by vaccination in these animals include infectious canine hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvovirus, feline infectious enteritis, influenza, tetanus, viral arteritis, and others. Merck Animal Health offers vaccines for companion animals. Nobivac is an extensive range of vaccines that protect dogs, cats, and rabbits against many different diseases.

  • Aquacultutre Vaccines

    • Aquaculture vaccines play an important role in large-scale commercial fish farming. Most of the vaccines for aquaculture to date are protective against bacterial pathogens and can be administered either orally or by injection. The most common aquaculture vaccine types include live attenuated bacterins, subunit vaccines, and toxoids. MSD Animal Health company offers AQUAVAC ERM, an inactivated water-based immersion vaccine for protection against Enteric Redmouth Disease.

By Technology

  • Live Attenuated Vaccines

    • Live attenuated vaccines are derived from disease-causing pathogens such as viruses or bacteria that have been weakened under laboratory conditions so that they are not able to cause disease itself but can produce a robust immune response. These vaccines create a more prolonged and robust immune response. Examples of live attenuated vaccines include most canine distemper virus vaccines and all canine parvovirus and adenovirus-2 vaccines.

  • Inactivated Vaccines

    • Inactivated vaccines, also known as killed vaccines, contain a completely inactivated pathogen, which is no longer infectious. These vaccines often contain an adjuvant, which is a compound added to help improve the protective immune response. These vaccines are generally considered very safe. Examples of inactivated vaccines are all canine rabies vaccines, all canine influenza vaccines, and others.

  • Toxoid Vaccines

    • Toxoid vaccines are based on inactivated toxins produced by pathogens that have been sufficiently attenuated yet can induce a humoral immune response. These vaccines tend not to have a duration of immunity comparable to attenuated viral vaccines. In these types of vaccines, booster doses may be required multiple times in a single year. An example of a toxoid vaccine is the Crotalus atrox toxoid vaccine.

  • Recombinant Vaccines

    • Recombinant technology is relatively new to veterinary vaccines. Recombinant vaccines combine safety, potency, purity, and efficacy into one vaccine. Licensed recombinant vaccines in animal vaccines include those protecting against Lyme disease, canine distemper, pseudorabies, rabies, Newcastle disease, and a strain of avian influenza.

  • Others

    • Other’s segment involves subunit vaccines, toxoid vaccines, conjugate vaccines, and DNA vaccines. Subunit vaccines contain fragments of protein or polysaccharides from the pathogen that are noninfectious. Toxoid vaccines are made by purifying the bacterial exotoxin. DNA vaccine uses a gene from a virus or bacteria to stimulate the immune system. It has several advantages, such as simplicity of manufacture, biological stability, cost-effectiveness, and safety.
