It was also used to obtain important information about key players, market classification and segmentation according to industry trends to the bottom-most level, and key developments related to market and technology perspectives. A database of the key industry leaders was also prepared using secondary research.

Impact of Covid-19:

In the optimistic scenario, the COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the animal parasiticides market. Because of the pandemic, there was an increase in dog and cat adoption from animal shelters in many developed and developing nations. This increased the demand for pet care products for a brief period. However, the abandonment of pet dogs and animal cruelty have also been reported amidst the pandemic due to rumors of animals as potential reservoirs of COVID-19.

In a pessimistic scenario, it could be assumed that the COVID-19 pandemic has lowered the demand for animal care. As a result of the pandemic in most veterinary clinics & hospitals and pet care centers, footfall was limited due to infection control measures and nationwide lockdowns. This has resulted in most major players functioning at negligible capacity or even immobilized them completely.

RESTRAINTS: Regulations restricting the use of parasiticides for food-producing animals

The use of parasiticides in livestock animals is subject to various federal regulations in many countries. The extra-label use of these topical parasiticides could leave residues that may, on consumption by human beings, have side effects. As a result, the use of these parasiticides, especially endoparasiticides, needs to be regulated; safe residue concentrations and withdrawal periods for antiparasitics used in food-producing animals must be standardized, and slaughtered animals need to be monitored for possible unsafe residues.

OPPORTUNITY: Lucrative opportunities in emerging markets

Over the last few years, companion animal ownership has witnessed a steady increase, especially in emerging countries such as India, China, Brazil, and other APAC and Latin American countries. Rapid urbanization and growing disposable incomes are driving pet ownership in these countries. Many pet owners in these countries are now willing to spend more on pet care.

On the other hand, emerging countries like India and China have robust livestock markets. According to the National Dairy Development Board, milk production in India has increased every year—from 146.3 million tons in 2015 to 165.4 million tons in 2017 and 187.7 million tons in 2019. Moreover, India is the world’s largest milk producer, accounting for 19% of the global market. As of January 2020, China is the world’s largest pork producer, producing about 55 million metric tons of pork each year. Milk production and consumption in China are also increasing at a rapid pace.
