The Asia-Pacific veterinary vaccine market is expected to witness a CAGR of 6.12% over the forecast period. The key factors propelling the growth of this market are the increasing incidences of livestock diseases, initiatives by various government agencies, animal associations, leading players in the Asia-Pacific region, and the increasing incidences of zoonotic diseases.
According to the National Dairy Development Board 2017, India has a cattle population of 158.7 million and it has one of the largest animal husbandry sectors in the world, along with the largest livestock population, with 520.6 million heads. Furthermore, in 2016, Zoetis and Merial entered into an agreement for marketing and distribution drugs and vaccines for dairy cattle in India. Merial is expected to market and sell Zoetis products, including brands, such as Bovical, Rispoval, Spirovac, and many others. Thus, increasing cattle population in the region and increasing prevalence of diseases, along with improved distribution reach, with vaccine institutes reaching smaller districts, are some of the factors that are augmenting the growth of the market.
