Animal disinfectants help in killing fungi, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens in animal veterinary clinics and livestock production premises, and protect animals from the risk of infection as well as prevent the transmission of diseases to humans.
Animal disinfectants help in controlling the prevailing incidences of diseases in the livestock and help in terminal disinfection of the premises. These disinfectants help to curb potential outbreaks, and thus help in driving the market growth. Moreover, increase in the consumer preferences for biological disinfectants also act as a good opportunity for the global animal disinfectant market.
Global Animal Disinfectant Market - Impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to drive the growth of the global animal disinfectant market over the forecast period. Market players are engaged in launching new sanitization or disinfectant products for animals and animal houses/premises, during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is expected to increase the growth of the global animal disinfectant market over the forecast period.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): 2019 report, the U.S. government released the list of top zoonotic diseases that can be transmitted between animals and people. The list includes zoonotic influenza, salmonellosis, west Nile virus, plague, SARS and MERS, rabies, brucellosis, lyme diseases etc. Animal disinfectants include the following active compounds such as, iodine, lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, phenolic acid, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, glycolic acid etc. These compounds helps in killing the agents that are involved in causing these zoonotic diseases.
Increasing outbreak of zoonotic diseases is expected to propel growth of the global companion animal drugs market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. witnessed outbreaks of Salmonella Typhimurium in pet turtles in 2020. In 2019, the country also witnessed outbreak of Salmonella Oranienburg infections in pet turtles and campylobacter infections in pet store puppies.
Increasing research and development activities by the researchers for studying the diseases or infections caused in animals are expected to increase the growth of the global animal disinfectant market over the forecast period. For instance, in 2020, the researchers at the United Nations (UN) Environment Programs announced that many societal factors may play a role in increasing the transmission of zoonotic diseases such as Ebola, Lyme disease, malaria, rabies, and West Nile Fever. The societal factors include increased meat production, increased livestock farming, changes in food supply chains that may increase cross-contamination, and climate changes that may lead to emergence of more zoonotic diseases. Thus, disinfection of animals is very important in order to prevent the spread of diseases.
