Market Dynamics:

The rising frequency of infectious illnesses in animals is driving the animal disinfectants market. Furthermore, the increasing emphasis on the development of sustainable animal disinfectants is expected to drive the growth of the animal disinfectant market. Infectious illnesses such as avian influenza, African swine fever, brucellosis, East Coast fever, African animal trypanosomiasis, and others are becoming a serious problem for livestock farmers across the world. These illnesses are also highly lethal. Certain illnesses, such as African swine fever, African animal trypanosomiasis, and FMD, have 100% death rates. To limit the spread of such highly infectious illnesses, animal disinfectants are widely employed in animal care and breeding facilities such as livestock farms and veterinary animal clinics. Because of the constantly rising demand for animal products across the world, particularly in developing nations, the livestock business is changing. In emerging nations, livestock is one of the fastest-growing agricultural sub-sectors. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, global beef and veal product output reached 61 million tonnes in April 2021. The expansion of the livestock surface disinfectant business is being aided by an increase in the number of animal farms and growing awareness among farmers about animal diseases and hygiene. According to the Insurance Research Council's October 2020 study, almost one-third of Americans (30%) acquired a pet during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Statista, 471 million dogs were kept as pets by families in 2018.

However, lack of awareness among the communities regarding utilization of disinfectants and extensive usage of traditional practices such as bleaching and phenol moping are the factors hindering the growth of the global animal disinfectants market.

COVID-19 Impact:

The impact of the COVID-19 shutdown was massive on a global scale, and particularly significant in important consumer markets for animal disinfectants. The demand for disinfection goods aimed at the livestock industry has remained robust, with firms such as Lanxess operating at nearly full capacity in production units for both disinfectants and water treatment. However, supply-chain problems in important emerging regions, particularly Mexico and Central America, had a temporary negative impact on sales. Due to distribution channel weaknesses, the last mile connectivity to small and medium-scale animal farms has experienced a setback.

Market Segmentation:

The global animal disinfectants market is segmented on the basis of product type into Hydrogen Peroxide, Potassium Peroxomonosulphate, Iodine and others.

Due to the accelerating utilisation of iodine as a consequence of its different forms, which are primarily utilised in animal health and food processing infections, the iodine sector is expected to dominate the market throughout the forecast period. Iodine may be found in conjunction with other elements, as well as in high concentrations in seaweed, which is its most frequent commercial source. It may be found in saltwater, brines, and nitrate deposits, in addition to seaweed. Manufacturers utilise chemicals such as lactic acid, glycolic acid, phenolic acid, hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid, and iodine in different chemical disinfection for effective cleaning and disinfection. Iodine, on the other hand, has dominated the usage of all other compounds due to its ease of availability and extensive application. In animal farms, iodine-based disinfectants are renowned for their sporicidal impact as well as their ability to inhibit bacterial, fungal, and viral growth. Iodophors are disinfectants made up of iodine and a variety of different carrier compounds, as well as stabilising ingredients like Globaline, which is made up of tetraglycine hydroperiodide, sodium acid pyrophosphate, and talc.

Geographical Penetration:

By region, the global animal disinfectants market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-east, and America.

North America is expected to dominate the global animal disinfectants market owing to the high presence of the animal farming industry and increased adoption of companion animals by nuclear families. According to the American Pet Products Association's 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey, 67% of American homes, or 85 million families, own a pet. The North American disinfectant industry is being driven by increased expenditure by agricultural producers and pet growers for the healthy management of livestock and surroundings.

The Asia Pacific area is expected to be the fastest-growing market for animal disinfectants in the next years. The region's market is driven by the existence of a significant cattle population and consequent demand for animal-based food items in the context of growing urbanization and rising income levels, which encourage consumers to choose animal-based protein sources. Pork and poultry are popular in the Asia Pacific area. Demand for chicken is expected to rise in India and China as a result of factors such as increased emphasis on meat quality and different public health initiatives encouraging the intake of animal protein sources.
