Vaccination enhances health of animals, thus improving their life expectancies. Veterinary vaccines are available for diseases such as rabies, E. coli, distemper, hepatitis rotavirus, parvovirus, brucellosis, and pinkeye. Various diseases such as foot-and-mouth disease and influenza adversely affect livestock across the globe. Economic losses due to death of livestock is significant, as it impacts the supply of dairy products, meat, and other poultry products.

Vaccines are broadly classified as inactivated vaccines, toxoid vaccines, live attenuated vaccines, conjugated vaccines, and subunit and DNA vaccines. Veterinary vaccines impact animal health and production quality and also ensure good health of general human population through consumption of various food procured from animals.

Global Animal Vaccines Market - Impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The rapid spread of COVID-19 across the globe is posing a challenge for veterinary healthcare systems worldwide. According to data published by the Centers for Disease Control & Protection (CDC) in November 2021, the risk of animals spreading SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is low. Currently, there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading SARS-CoV-2. Due to social distancing policies, most of the veterinary visits are done through telemedicine medium such as video calling from smart phones or tablet devices. For instance, in April 2020, Boehringer Ingelheim U.K. collaborated with VetHelpDirect, that offered all U.K. veterinary practices free access to an online video consultation platform for a period of three months during the pandemic. By offering an alternative to face-to-face consultation, the online platform is a means of continuing care for animals while protecting both clients and staff from the spread of COVID-19

Veterinary research centers are focused on developing a COVID-19 vaccine for animals as a preventive measures. For instance, in June 2020, the Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI), announced plans of developing a vaccine and diagnostic kits, and study the transmission dynamics of COVID-19 in pets and wild animals. Moreover, this project will be carried out in collaboration with IIT-Roorkee, India.

Furthermore, in the near future, global animal vaccines market is expected witness growth, owing to the increasing demand for vaccinations for animals. Following the re-opening of manufacturing units, demand and supply are projected to meet expectations of customers whose pet vaccine schedules were delayed due to the pandemic.

The global animal vaccines market is estimated to be valued at US$ 7,119.7 Mn in 2021, and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period (2021-2028).
