According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research titled Flea and Tick Product Market– Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018 – 2026,’ the global flea and tick product market is expected to reach US$ 10,115.21 Mn by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 9.7% from 2018 to 2026. The global flea and tick market is expected to show significant growth rate during the forecast period due to product availability through different retail channels. Additionally, treating the pets as family members has also resulted in awareness about ensuring their proper health among the pet owners.

Rising concerns about proper health of pets among pet owners has resulted in the growth of the flea and tick product market. Changing consumer attitude toward pets over the years has also resulted in the growth of this market. Companion animal services and products account for a major share of consumer expenditure in North America. Approximately 62% to 65% of households in North America own pets, commonly cats and dogs. In 2014, citizens here spent around US$ 58 Bn on pets, which included supplies, food, veterinary care, OTC medication, and prescriptions. This rapid rise in pet care spending has been driven by the fact that the attitude of consumers has shifted and they regard pets as members of the family. Coinciding with this attitude shift, consumers are presently willing to spend sizeable amounts in order to care and feed their pets. The Food and Drug Association (FDA) has approved several therapeutic medications which have increasingly contributed to the sales of pet medication.
