Swine respiratory disease affects the respiratory tract of swine. It is one of the prevalent cause of death in nursery pigs and grower/finisher pigs. There are multiple pathogens, viruses, and other secondary causative agents that causes respiratory disease in swine. Primary pathogens that causes swine respiratory disease are Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP), Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Bordetella bronchiseptica, and Pasteurella multocida. Viral agents involved are porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus and swine influenza virus (SIV). Various diseases that come under ambit of swine respiratory disease are mycoplasma pneumonia, swine influenza, classical swine fever atrophic rhinitis, pleuropneumonia, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome, and porcine circovirus type 2. These infectious agents together increase the severity of the disease.

China, U.S., and E.U to drive growth of the swine respiratory disease treatment market due to high pork production

According to the factsheet by United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UN-FAO) worldwide there is close to one billion headcount of swine. China has highest number of headcount, followed by the U.S. and EU. These regions are expected to drive growth of the respiratory disease treatment market, owing to high pork production. As per the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), around 108.2 million metric tons of pork was produced in 2016, which requires supply of healthy swine. Early vaccination is essential for healthy swine as respiratory disease in swine leads to lung damage, poor growth of swine, medication cost, and in turn results into lower economic efficiency for swine farmer. Therefore many of these regions opt for vaccination to prevent the respiratory disease in swine, which in turn is expected to propel growth for the swine respiratory disease treatment market. According to the study published in Virology Journal in 2017, emergence of porcine cyclovirus type 3 in pigs in regions such as China, U.S. and some part of Europe is fueling growth of the swine respiratory disease treatment market. According to Scientific Reports published in 2013, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome is economically most important disease of swine in North America, Europe, and Asia. North America spends around US$ 600 million annually for treatment of this disease.

However, increasing inclination of population towards adoption of vegetarian diet in China leading to lower swine farming prospect is restating growth of the swine respiratory treatment market. Also, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) cost of pork was dropping till end of 2017, which negatively affects the swine farming.

Lincomix is the only feed medication approved against mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, which is leading cause for swine pneumonia. In 2016, Gamithromycin (ZACTRAN) was approved for use in pigs by USDA. In June 2017, a team of researchers from University of Leicester isolated 20 bacteriophages that targets 72 potential drug resistant bacteria in pigs. This bacteriophages were found to be more specific for treatment of bacterial infections in pigs. MSD Animal Health (known as Merck Animal Health in the U.S. and Canada) in November 2017, signed an agreement to acquire Vilsan Pharmaceuticals which is a division of Vimar Group, based in Turkey. Vilsan Pharmaceuticals holds significant share in animal health products in Turkey.
