Ectoparasiticides refer to the antiparasitic drugs which are administered in the treatment of animals diagnosed with ectoparasitic infestations or infections. Also referred to as external parasiticides, these products are used to control or eliminate the parasites that attack both the livestock and the companion animals. These drugs often work in contrast to endoparasiticides, who works against the parasites inside the animal’s body. Ectoparasiticides can be classified according to the type of parasite they work against and can be called acaricides, insecticides, tickicides, lousicides, and scabicides. Ectoparasiticides are a crucial component for the health and welfare of the animal because they cause several diseases that can be infectious or zoonotic in terms of nature. Ectoparasiticides are one of the most effective and critical tools for preventing animal diseases and for promoting animal health and welfare, safe food production, and public health. Ectoparasiticides also play a crucial role in animal health protection by preventing and controlling serious epizootic diseases. Prevention of animal diseases is also critical because they are a negative constraint to sustained agricultural development and food security and can disrupt the economic benefits of international trade in livestock commodities. The factors above are thus likely to drive the ectoparasiticides market growth during the forecast period.
