Impact of Covid-19 on Animal Parasiticides Market
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. Major players in the market have adopted several measures to deal with these disturbances—for instance, in April 2020, Merck & Co. announced that it had lowered revenue expectations for 2020 by about USD 2.5 billion in anticipation of the negative impact on its animal health segment.

This segment is projected to reach USD 7,633.2 million by 2026 from USD 5,130.2 million in 2021, at a CAGR of 8.3%. The large share of this segment is primarily attributed to the increasing expenditure on pet animals and increasing companion animal ownership in developed countries.
