Emerging economies and the overall rise in the popularity of the pet industry is driving the veterinary pharmaceuticals market.

There are a number of factors driving the veterinary pharmaceuticals market forward including global economic developments and drivers linked with pet ownership. Growth in the emerging markets has been a key driver of historic growth as pet culture from the West spreads and results in rapidly growing markets for all related industries. Similarly, the demand for livestock grows along with an emerging country’s rapidly growing demands.

The growth of the pet industry, spanning increased pet ownership and the notion of a pet being an additional family member also drives this market. More people are forming strong emotional attachments to their pets, with the result being a willingness to spend on care that maintains or improves their health, including of course veterinary pharmaceuticals. Linked closely with this is the rising prevalence of pet insurance which will drive demand for veterinary pharmaceuticals as vets can offer them under the cover of the insurance plan. There is also evidence of rising prevalence of some animal diseases which will again drive demand for the appropriate pharmaceuticals.

The veterinary pharmaceuticals market is likely to be retrained somewhat by existing barriers to entry and a shortage of qualified veterinarians.

Veterinary pharmaceuticals is a technical and complex market, meaning that there are key inhibitors to growth, as well as challenges to overcome. As well as strong barriers to entry for the market, including competition from large global players and a regulatory minefield, there is also a shortage of veterinarians. Lack of availability of trained veterinarians means fewer potential customers the pharmaceuticals have access to the trained person who could recommend the appropriate treatment.
