A supplement is a product that reinforces nutritional balance. Veterinary supplements are products such as capsules and tablets that cover the deficiency in nutrition in animals.
The global Veterinary Supplements Market is primarily driven by an increase in disposable income and a rise in the adoption of pets. In recent times, the number of pet owners has been increasing significantly across the world. According to a study published by the Humane Society of the United States (2016), almost 70% of households own at least one pet, and 50% of all households own more than one pets in the U.S. Altogether, there are almost 87.0 million cats and 80 million dogs in homes across the U.S., and the number is anticipated to rise in the future. In addition, the animal industry has a strong impact on the overall economy. For instance, the equine industry involves breeding, keeping, and overall management of horses and shows a strong impact on the overall economy.
The industry creates income opportunities for several veterinary physicians, equestrians, and others. Additionally, it creates opportunities for the sale of equine healthcare products. According to the American Horse Council, the equine industry estimated that the same industry directly and indirectly contributed approximately US$ 39 Bn and US$ 63 Bn, respectively, to the U.S. economy in 2016. On the other hand, the equine industry generates almost US$ 122.1 Bn per year. Hence, a strong economic impact of equine industry is expected to drive the global equine health care market. However, lack of awareness about nutritional diets for pets and availability of low quality supplements for pets are likely to restrain the growth of the global veterinary supplements market during the forecast period.
