Dermatological problems are the most common type of medical conditions in animals. Veterinary skin problems (such as chewing or biting oneself excessively, persistent licking, scabs, loss of hair, skin color or texture change) need veterinary skin care to limit the chances of spreading it. Veterinary skin problems may have several causes such as allergies, fleas and fungal infection. Atopic dermatitis is a common cause of itching in animals.Dermatological problems tend to spread rapidly and hence, often require urgent veterinary skin care. The veterinary skin care product market has dramatically changed over the last few decades due to the shift toward urbanization and increasing awareness regarding veterinary skin care.
Veterinary Skin Care Products Market: Drivers and Restraints
The veterinary skin care products market has witnessed a significant surge over the last few decades due to the increasing awareness regarding veterinary care. Increasing urbanization and the rising number of pet animals are expected to contribute to the growth of the veterinary skin care products market. The rising prevalence of atopic dermatitis among animals is also driving the veterinary skin care products market. Increasing awareness regarding veterinary skin disorders, treatment options and various government initiatives to increase farm animal production is further expected to drive the demand for veterinary skin care products. The awareness regarding veterinary skin care products is relatively low in developing countries, but this scenario is gradually changing. The increasing population of companion animals and willingness to pay for their healthcare further drives the veterinary skin care products market. Very often, skin problems are a key reason for the low productivity of farm animals and the changing pattern of skin care is expected to drive the veterinary skin care products market. The manufacturing of innovative products and mergers and acquisitions by various companies also contribute to the market growth. On the other hand, the comparatively low awareness in developing countries and non-availability of veterinary medical professionals in distant locations, coupled with the low adoption of new veterinary care methods, can hamper the veterinary skin care products market growth.
