In 2015, the global animal health market was worth an estimated $30bn

This new thoroughly revised and updated Generics report focuses
primarily on the European and North American markets that comprise
around 67% of the global market for animal health products. Also fully
reviewed are the EU and North American veterinary generics markets, with
a specific focus on veterinary pharmaceuticals (such as anti-infectives
and parasiticides), as well as medicinal feed additives where

The global animal health market is dominated by pharmaceuticals (57% of
sales), biologicals (29%) and medicinal feed additives (14%).

While medicated feed is cheap, using primarily established active
ingredients (AIs) and often antimicrobials produced in bulk as a
commodity product, increasing regulation is making this sector less

Products based on patented AIs are probably worth just 5% of the market,
which reflects a lack of innovation, that many AIs are out of patent,
and that pioneer companies frequently retain the controlling share.

Because of the huge costs involved, generic biologicals (or biosimilars)
will only be open to large players. The high molecular complexity,
multifaceted production methods and stability issues, coupled with
smaller returns than for human pharmaceuticals, may prove insurmountable
for smaller companies.
