The key factors driving the market include rising consumption of meat and dairy products, increase in foodborne and zoonotic diseases, rising trend of pet adoption, and development of controlled-release drugs to extend the commercial life of existing drugs.

FMI maintains a positive outlook on the animal healthcare market, however, stringent regulations over use of antimicrobials in animal feed and pharmaceuticals can impede the growth. Furthermore, regulations over animal testing can also impact research and development (R&D) and development of new drugs.

On the basis of animal type, the market has been segmented into production animal and companion animal. The former accounts for 65% value share of the animal healthcare market; FMI expects demand for healthcare products to be higher in the production segment as compared to companion animals.
