Animal disinfectants are essential to protect livestock from disease outbreaks. Farmers need to take the right precautions when handling livestock, including using animal disinfectants regularly to prevent the spreading of diseases and infections. The disinfectants help eliminate pathogens and infections in the mouth and foot of animals, protecting them from illness. Disinfection in livestock farming is part of controlling disease and other actions, including veterinary investigations, treatments, and quarantine.

The increasing prevalence of livestock diseases worldwide will propel the demand for disinfectants. Various diseases and infections, including bovine tuberculosis, bovine viral diarrhea, infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, and sour mouth infection, affect livestock health. It forces livestock owners to follow extra care to keep livestock healthy and safe. According to Welsh Government services and information, in December 2021, approximately 10,641 cattle were slaughtered in Wales due to the incidence of 665 cases of bovine tuberculosis in cattle. These diseases are commonly transmitted through direct contact with fluids or tissues of an animal, such as blood, urine, and excreta. The disinfectant products help to curb the potential outbreaks, driving the demand for animal disinfectants market.

Farmers can achieve profitability in livestock production by reducing the extra expenses incurred on the animals. Livestock and other farm animals affected by diseases and bacteria make the animal weaker and less economical, which increases farmers’ expenses. With the help of disinfectants, farmers can reduce medical expenses, which is likely to support market growth.

Impact of Covid-19 on Animal Disinfectants Market

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected the livestock sector by disrupting the supply chain of animal feed and care products, resulting in limited animal health services, including delays in diagnosis and treatment and reduced labor force participation. The manufacturing industries of various commodities halted due to the unavailability of raw materials. Thus, the demand for animal disinfectant products remained high, but supply chain disruptions hampered the market growth.

The ongoing pandemic further opened an array of opportunities for the animal disinfectants market. There were growing hygiene and sanitization concerns among the people during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially animal owners. Therefore, in July 2020, wiggles, pet food & care products supplying company, launched a 100% alcohol-free and pet-safe instant sanitizer.

Analysis by Type

Based on type, iodine-based animal disinfectant is expected to hold a significant share in the global animal disinfectant market. The extensive activity of iodine affects microorganisms. Iodine is available in many forms for disinfectant or antiseptic use. In livestock, iodine-based disinfectants have immense usage due to their sporadic impact and ability to kill pathogens. Furthermore, povidone-iodine is safe to use, which controls the spread of infections without irritating animal skin and hair. Povidone-iodine is an extensively used chemical disinfectant in aquaculture, which decreases the occurrence of diseases, improves survival, and helps propel animal disinfectants market growth.

Analysis by Application

Based on application, the swine segment is estimated to hold a major share in the animal disinfectant market. On a pig farm, a wide variety of microorganisms can be found in the environment. Many pathogens affect pig farming, and their proper control is vital as they cause diseases such as colibacillosis, clostridiosis, brucellosis, leptospirosis, and swine parvovirus. According to an article published by Economic Times in May 2020, nearly 2,900 pigs died due to African swine fever in the Indian states of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. Thus, disinfection becomes a substantial part considering the large number of diseases and viruses across various regions.
