Animal parasiticides are chemical substances that eradicate parasites other than fungi and bacteria in animal livestock, pets, and other animals. Animal parasiticides are generally inert ingredients consisting of one or more than one active ingredients. Companies are developing various new formulations and products in the animal parasiticides market in order to eradicate the increasing prevalence of foodborne diseases. Rising awareness about animal healthcare, rapidly growing animal livestock and technological advancements over the last few years are expected to boost the global animal parasiticides market.

Animal parasiticides aid livestock and companion animals who suffer from parasite infections and other zoonotic diseases. Parasiticides improve overall efficiency in protecting the pets and cattle from deadly infections caused by arthropods and boost the production of quality meat for consumption. High prevalence and incidence rates of endoparasites and ectoparasites infections in global livestock production farms has resulted in increase in usage of parasiticides along with feed additives and oral suspension.
