Veterinary vaccines increase immunity of animals by improving animal health which avoids transmission of diseases from animals to humans. These vaccines can be given subcutaneously (under the skin) or intramuscularly (into the muscle) to animal. The aim of veterinary vaccines is to improve livestock production in a cost effective manner. The rise in the incidences of zoonotic diseases are affecting humans and has led to increased interest in companion animal vaccines. Advancement in this area is mainly due to emergence of new zoonotic diseases, investment by government bodies and increased expenditures on animal health by pet lovers.
In recent years’ veterinary vaccines have made much impact on human health, welfare and production by developing novel vaccines which can target dangerous zoonotic diseases such as E. coli O157:H7, a food borne disease that can lead to HUS and kidney failure. Moreover, due to novel research in the field, expansion in the range of veterinary vaccines and formulations of adjuvants and reduction of pharmaceutical residuals in the human food chain will propel the growth of veterinary vaccines market. However, persistent economic slowdown, rising costs of storage and maintenance and the increase in the vegetarian population are major factors constituting to restraints of market. With improvement in costs, more investments in animal health and skilled expertise this market could have lucrative opportunities of growth.
