Veterinary API Manufacturing Market Outlook and Industry Forecast to 2028

A Chapter by Markets Insights

The global veterinary active pharmaceutical ingredients manufacturing market size was valued at USD 6.3 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2028


The global Veterinary Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Manufacturing Market size is expected to reach USD 10.4 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in animals and growing concerns among pet owners are the key contributors to the market growth.

Moreover, the growing prevalence of zoonotic diseases is driving the demand for drugs, which, in turn, boosts the demand for active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) for the production of these drugs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in July 2017, it was estimated that 6 out of 10 known infectious diseases in people can be transmitted from animals and 3 out of every 4 novel or emerging infectious diseases in people are caused due to animals.

Government organizations are involved in issuing various guidelines to promote veterinary services globally, which is expected to contribute to market growth in the coming years. For instance, in May 2018, the OIE International Standards, a part of the WTO framework, issued standards to improve animal health, which will affect human health as well. One of the key challenges was found to be the lack of technical expertise in this field.

The rising number of veterinarians is also anticipated to boost the market growth. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, in 2018, there were 113,394 veterinarians in the U.S. as compared to 110,531 veterinarians in 2017. Out of these, 48,898 were involved in private clinical practice exclusively for companion animals. Also, according to the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA), the approximate number of veterinarians in Canada is 12,921.
