Veterinary Dermatology Drugs Market to Surpass Valuation of US$ 9.9 Bn by 2031: Transparency Market Research

Veterinary Dermatology Drugs Market: Introduction

According to the report, the global veterinary dermatology drugs market was valued over US$ 3.6 Bn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a moderate CAGR from 2021 to 2031. Veterinary dermatology, also referred as pet skin care, involves diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of skin problems in animals. Dermatological disorders or skin disorders are the most common medical conditions seen in animals. The most common sign of a dermatological problem in animals are licking, biting, repeatedly shaking the head, and excessive scratching or chewing of fur and skin. Additional symptoms of skin problems include lumps, hair loss, dandruff, a foul odor from ears or skin, and change in the texture or color of pet's fur or skin. Itching is commonly seen in companion animals; atopic dermatitis is the common cause of itching.

According to a research conducted by the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad Veterinary Teaching Hospital, 20% to 40% of small animals suffered from skin problems in Iran in 20132014. Globally, this number may be even higher. Variations in clinical presentations such as the extent of lesions, genetic factors, secondary infections, stage of the disease, and weather conditions could complicate the exact diagnosis of the disease. Atopy is genetically determined predisposition to become allergic to airborne pollens such as grass, weeds, trees, mold, and house dust. In domestic pets such as cats and dogs, atopic dermatitis is the most common cause of biting, chewing, rubbing, or ear infections as well as other chronic infections.

Increase in Medical and Diagnostic Capabilities for Companion Animals to Drive Global Market

The global veterinary dermatology drugs market continues to grow at a rapid pace. The market is driven in developed countries by improved diagnostic and medical capabilities for companion animals. There is a rise in the demand for local anesthetics, anti-inflammatory agents, emollients to treat acne, cleansers, and anti-infectives. Moreover, increase in the demand for veterinary and related products such as dairy and agriculture products and rise in awareness about veterinary dermatology drugs are anticipated to drive the global veterinary dermatology drugs market.

Increase in Ownership of Companion Animals to Fuel Market Growth

Rise in companion animal ownership is a significant trend in the animal healthcare segment. In 2013, around 62% of the U.S. households owned a companion animal (excluding horses) i.e., around 72.9 million homes. Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and Russia are among the top countries with a high growth rate in terms of companion animal ownership.

In terms of region, the global veterinary dermatology drugs market has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the global veterinary dermatology drugs market in 2020, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. North America is projected to be a highly attractive market from 2021 to 2031.

North America is also home to several key players such as Idexx, VCA, and Thermo Fisher, which augments the market. The veterinary dermatology drugs market in Asia Pacific is expected to be driven by availability of veterinary dermatology drugs, vaccines, and medicated feed additives for the well-being of the rapidly increasing livestock animal population in the region
