Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the dogs segment accounted for around 46.5% market share

On the basis of the animal, the global companion animal pharmaceuticals market is segmented into dogs, cats, horses, and others. The dogs segment has emerged as a dominant force in the Companion Animal Pharmaceuticals market, exerting significant influence on its overall growth and dynamics. There are several key reasons behind the dominance of the dogs segment in the market, such as dogs are the most commonly kept companion animals globally, with a large population of households owning one or more dogs. This widespread dog ownership contributes to a substantial customer base for companion animal pharmaceuticals, driving market demand. Dogs are susceptible to a wide range of health conditions and diseases, including skin disorders, allergies, infections, joint problems, and more. As a result, there is a continuous need for various medications and treatments to address these specific health issues in dogs. This creates a robust market for pharmaceutical companies to develop and distribute dog-specific medications. Furthermore, dogs often require routine preventive care, such as vaccinations, heartworm prevention, and flea and tick control. This ongoing healthcare needs further contribute to the demand for pharmaceutical products in the dogs segment. Moreover, pet owners' increasing awareness and emphasis on dog health and wellness play a crucial role in driving the market. Many owners consider their dogs as integral family members and are willing to invest in their well-being, including providing them with appropriate medications and treatments. Additionally, advancements in veterinary medicine and pharmaceutical research have led to the development of innovative and specialized drugs specifically tailored for dogs. This includes medications for pain management, behavioral issues, and chronic conditions, among others, further strengthening the dominance of the dogs segment in the market. Overall, the combination of a large dog population, specific health needs, preventive care requirements, and pet owners' growing awareness and investment in dog health contribute to the dogs segment's dominance in the companion animal pharmaceuticals market.


  • In 2022, the parasiticides segment dominated with more than 52.6% market share

Based on the product, the global companion animal pharmaceuticals market is segmented into antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, parasiticides, and vaccines. The parasiticides segment stands out as the leading category in the global companion animal pharmaceuticals market due to the prevalence of parasitic infections in companion animals. Fleas, ticks, and heartworms are common parasites that can cause severe health issues in pets and even transmit diseases to humans, raising concerns among pet owners. Consequently, there is a growing demand for preventive measures like parasiticides to safeguard their beloved companions from these harmful organisms. The continuous development of new and more effective parasiticide products further drives market growth in this segment, as pharmaceutical companies strive to offer safer and more efficient solutions. Meanwhile, the vaccines segment holds the second-highest share in the global market, primarily because vaccinations play a critical role in preventing infectious diseases in companion animals. Regular vaccination schedules are crucial components of animal healthcare routines to curb the spread of diseases. With pet owners becoming increasingly aware of the importance of vaccination, there has been a surge in demand for animal vaccines. Moreover, the rising incidence of zoonotic diseases (those that can be transmitted between animals and humans) has further emphasized the significance of vaccination for both pets and public health. Interestingly, the COVID-19 pandemic has also impacted the companion animal pharmaceuticals market, especially the vaccines segment. Many pet owners have sought to protect their furry friends from the virus, leading to an increase in demand for vaccines designed to mitigate the risks associated with the pandemic. This phenomenon has added momentum to the growth of the vaccines segment during these challenging times. In conclusion, the parasiticides segment's prominence can be attributed to the need to address parasitic infections in companion animals, while the vaccines segment's significance stems from its vital role in preventing infectious diseases and zoonotic transmission. Both segments continue to witness robust growth, driven by increased awareness, advancing technologies, and the ongoing pursuit of optimal healthcare for our cherished animal companions
