Animal Wound Care Market Growth & Trends

The global animal wound care market size is expected to reach USD 1.5 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2021 to 2028. Increased demand for non-invasive surgeries and the growing prevalence of chronic diseases are propelling the growth. Increasing disposable income in developing countries is expected to further fuel the market. According to Aratana therapeutics report, around 25 million dogs had undergone surgeries in the U.S. in 2019 and among them, around 5.5 million suffered from postoperative pain.

Like other industries, the animal health industry has also been significantly affected in COVID -19 due to the slow movement of the small businesses, service providers, and consumers paused to the social distancing norms and other restrictions. In many countries, the impact of COVID-19 was amplified through other occurrences, such as the African swine fever in Europe and wildfires in the western USA. After the initial shock and confusion about the pandemic, companies and governments soon started taking corrective actions to help the economy and businesses recover. Resumption of pet clinic visits also observed during the 3rd quarter of 2020, thus gradually recovering the revenue.

Increasing initiatives by the major industry players are further propelling the market. For instance, in July 2019, Vetoquinol launched an antibiotic dressing spray in India to expand its geographical footprint. In March 2021, AxioBiosolutions expanded its animal wound management space with the introduction of the SureKlot range of products.
