Key Market Trends
Rising Trend for Industrial Livestock Production
According to the World Bank, the adoption of industrialized meat production is growing six times faster than that of traditional meat production. With an increase in the mass production of meat, the trend of landless meat production facilities is catching up. The meat production industry is moving toward consolidation, especially in the mature markets, such as the United States and Europe. This is done to increase meat production with reduced land usage, thereby, driving the need for utilization of animal disinfectants in industrial livestock farms to prevent the spreading of diseases in the animals.
Infectious diseases of livestock are a significant threat to global animal health and welfare, and their control is vital for agronomic health. Some devastating livestock diseases are widespread in many parts of the world. Threats from old and new pathogens continue to emerge, with changes to global climate, agricultural practices, and demography. These changes present conditions that are especially favorable for the spread of arthropod-borne diseases into new geographical areas, thereby, leading to the rising need for the usage of animal disinfectants in the livestock farms. The selection of suitable disinfectants for usage in animal facilities needs consideration of various factors, including the spectrum of activity, human safety, and effects on the health and behavior of animals exposed to these agents. Therefore, the increased industrial livestock population may lead to higher demand for animal disinfectants in the forecast period.
United States Dominates the Market
The United States emerged as the region with the highest share in the global agricultural disinfectant market in 2019. In the US region, the increased production of livestock and the growth in the number of livestock farms, coupled with increased penetration of protected cultivation, are driving the market for agricultural disinfectants. Although challenges, such as lack of awareness about scientific disinfection practices in agriculture remain, the sheer growth of the end-user industries is expected to drive the market in the region over the forecast period.
The North American agricultural disinfectant market is moderately fragmented, with the presence of a large number of regional and local players. There is also a significant presence of companies that offer disinfectants for multiple operations, apart from agriculture. Companies operating in the market are not only looking for organic growth through an increase in sales revenues. Still, they are also involved in strategic moves, such as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and collaborations.
