Key Market Trends

Vaccines Contributed the Largest Share, in Terms of Revenues, in the Therapeutics Segment

Vaccines are a crucial part of preventive healthcare for companion animals. They are categorized as core vaccines and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines are compulsory for all companion animals, whereas non-core vaccines are indicated by companion animal lifestyle or based on geographical area. In China, new advanced vaccines are manufactured containing genetically engineered components derived from those disease agents.

In dogs, Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis/Adenovirus, Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza are the core vaccines while, Bordetella, Leptospirosis, Lyme Disease, Giardia, and Canine Influenza H3N8 are the non-core vaccines. In cats, FVRCP (distemper)is the vaccine to protect against Rhinotracheitis (feline herpes), Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia. Also, Rabies FeLV (feline leukemia) vaccines are given to cats.

According to the Chinese government, all dogs and cats must be vaccinated against rabies annually. Moreover, in recent years, there has also been an increased awareness about animal vaccinations and the overall health of dogs and cats in China. In 2017, more than 3,500 cats and dogs were treated for various diseases, primarily through animal welfare programs funded by the Animals Asia Foundation. The animals were rescued and vaccinated efficiently. Thus, these organizations are focusing on protecting animals' health and saving their lives.

Moreover, The vaccines segment of the Chinese veterinary healthcare market is expected to be driven by innovations in vaccines, growing awareness of animal health, increasing investments by government bodies and associations, and increased expenditure on the healthcare of companion animals. In April 2018, Zoetis expanded its animal vaccines research and manufacturing facility in Suzhou, China. The new facility is expected to focus on developing and producing quality vaccines for swine, cattle, fish, and companion animals, thereby protecting against the strains of diseases prevalent in China.

However, with COVID-19 impact in the country from end of 2019 to 2020, had affected the services provided to companion animals as supplies were reduced significantly for some period and the pet owners were confinedto their homes for significant period.
