Increasing Livestock Diseases

The livestock sector is highly dynamic, globally. In developing countries, it is evolving in response to rapidly increasing demand for livestock products. In developed countries, demand for livestock products is stagnating, while many production systems are increasing their efficiency and environmental sustainability.

Livestock diseases contribute to an important set of problems within livestock production systems. These include animal welfare, productivity losses, uncertain food security, loss of income, and negative impacts on human health. Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious disease of cloven-hoofed animals, including cattle, swine, sheep and goats, as well as many species of wild animals. According to USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service, in 2015, there were approximately 173 million cattle and swine in the United States, along with almost 8 million sheep and goats, which were all susceptible to FMD.

According to (MAFRA), in 2016, bird flu occurred in South Korea, due to which the government culled more than 30 million chickens and ducks across the country as a preventive measure, creating a shortage of eggs in the domestic market. Thus, increasing prevalence of livestock disease is the major factor for the growth of veterinary vaccine market as these diseases can be eradicated with the periodic use of vaccines for animals.

The other factors, such as increasing adoption of companion animals, rising incidence of zoonotic diseases, and initiatives by various government agencies, animal associations, and leading players are driving the veterinary vaccines market.

High Storage Costs for Vaccines

The cost of vaccinations has gone up as there are indirect costs, which are associated with the production of vaccines that includes Personnel costs for ordering and inventory, Storage costs, Insurance against loss of the vaccine, Recovery of costs attributable to inventory shrinkage, wastage, and non-payment and Lost opportunity costs.

Vaccines may lose their effectiveness if they become too hot or too cold at any time. Vaccines naturally biodegrade over time, and storage outside of the recommended temperature range including during transport may speed up loss of potency, which cannot be reversed. This may result in the failure of the vaccine to create the desired immune response and consequently provide poor protection. So, CDC recommends modifications to the standard household refrigerator or specialized storage equipment.

The CDC also recommends the purchase of emergency equipment, such as backup generators and alarms. This specialized equipment is a necessary increase to the cost of managing a vaccination business. Thus, handling cost of the vaccines is increased due to the CDC guidelines and it is acting as a major barrier for the growth of the market.

Also, wasted vaccines from equipment failures at clinics add up to a significant monetary and public health cost. The other factor, such as use of counterfeit medicines is also hindering the growth of the market

United States Lead the Market in North America Region

The United States veterinary vaccines market holds the largest market share, in 2017, in North America region due to the awareness for prevention of animal-to-human transmission diseases, safe animal food supply, and lower investment in research and development in the animal vaccine, compared to human vaccine area may propel the Veterinary Vaccines market. In the APAC sector, China and South Korea have been identified as potential emerging markets due to high R&D investments.
