Veterinary Medicines—a study on 50 Major Medicines with Projected Sales

Veterinary Medicines—a study on 50 Major Medicines with Projected Sales

The prevalence of animal diseases, disorders and illnesses has put the spotlight on veterinary medicines. Farmers and pet owners bank on drugs to keep their animal disease free and healthy. The medicine can also be used to control and monitor zoonotic diseases and maintain livestock food supply. Veterinarians also work in agribusiness to ensure a safe food supply, while also helping farmers boost their productivity. 

The rising allergic disease among dogs has prompted industry leaders to inject funds into research and development programs and product rollouts. In January 2022, Zoetis announced European Commission marketing authorization for Apoquel chewable tablets for dogs. It will help treat pruritus and provide enough time for veterinarians to identify the cause of allergic disease in dogs. The database lists dogs as the most represented targeted species (65%).  

The huge repository of Grand View Research includes competitive insights exhibiting forward-looking companies’ strategic approaches to bolster their market penetration in veterinary medicine. For instance, in 2021, the top four animal health products in Boehringer Ingelheim led to net sales of more than EUR 1,894 million. The final report, along with the database, will deep-dive into the following dynamics:

• Insights on molecules/active ingredients, including Lokivetmab, maleate, Amoxicillin, Selamectin, Pyrantel and Ivermectin.

• Inputs on regulatory approvals, patent information, ASP and competition from generics, among others. 

• Analysis of a diverse portfolio of diagnose products and veterinary medicines. For instance, pharmaceuticals (most represented in the database) account for 72% share of the total products.

• Assessment of anti-inflammatory, antiparasitic, antibiotics and dermatology products.
