Posted on: 01 Nov 16

Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recentglobal animal antibacterial and antibiotics market report. This research report also lists 18 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the global animal antibacterial and antibiotics market is highly fragmented with several small and large vendors. The vendors collaborate or acquire other vendors to stay competitive in the market. High growth opportunities in the market enable the entry of new players.

Consumption of animal protein has been rising rapidly across the globe with emerging countries bringing the maximum growth in demand. To meet this growing demand, countries are using cost-efficient and vertically integrated intensive livestock production system. To keep the animals healthy and maintain productivity under such programs, the demand, as well as consumption of antibacterials and antibiotics is growing in proportion.

However, overuse of antibiotics leads to the increase of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, which becomes a significant threat to the future efficacy of antibiotics. The emerging countries such as India and China lead the chart here as the use of antibiotics in animals is unregulated in most of the developing countries, especially India,” says Sapna Jha, lead infectious and rare diseases analyst from Technavio. As one of the latest moves, the US FDA is trying to control the unapproved use of animal antibiotic as 'growth promoters.' The authority created a three-year program in 2013 where it asked all veterinary antibiotics makers to change the label instruction and remove the words 'growth promoters' from the label.
