Animal health refers to the routine monitoring of the health of livestock and domesticated animals. It involves the development of veterinary drugs, pesticides, feed additives, pharmaceuticals, and biologics. It helps ensure a constant food supply and prevent the outbreak of numerous zoonotic diseases, such as feline leukemia, animal flu, Lyme disease, and tick infestation, caused by viruses, bacteria, and parasites. As it also aids in reducing the chances of inter-species infection among animals, the demand for animal healthcare services is rising across India.

India Animal Health Market Trends:

There is currently a significant rise in the prevalence of zoonotic diseases in India. This, coupled with the burgeoning veterinary pharmaceutical industry, represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Moreover, the Government of India is increasing investments in animal healthcare practices as the dairy industry is animal dependent. Besides this, both government and various non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are undertaking research and development (R&D) activities in the field of animal health. For instance, the Indian Federation of Animal Health Companies (INFAH), an organization formed under Section 25 of the Companies Act, works extensively to create awareness about disease control and effective treatments. This, coupled with the widespread adoption of feed additives, which aid in improving the overall animal health and enhancing the quality of the produce, including milk, meat, and eggs, is positively influencing the market. Furthermore, technological advancements, such as the integration of the internet of things (IoT) with animal health monitoring solutions, are driving the market in India. Other factors, including the rising adoption of pets and the increasing utilization of mobile sensors and wearables to monitor animal behavior and health, are fueling the market growth.
