As compared to livestock animals, companion animals receive special care and veterinary treatment from their owners, which is the major factor driving the market share of this segment.

Based on route of administration, the pharmaceutical products, i.e., drugs and medicated feed are given orally hence the oral route of administration dominates the market. Viral infections dominate the type of infection segment pertaining to their ease of spread and rate of infection.

Veterinary clinics are expected to grow at a faster rate because they provide specialized pet/ livestock treatment however, veterinary hospitals are still likely to dominate the end-user segment.
