Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2037

Animal Fungal Treatment Market size is expected to reach USD 3.24 billion by the end of 2037, growing at a CAGR of 6.89% during the forecast period i.e., 2025-2037. In the year 2024, the industry size of animal fungal treatment was over USD 1.36 billion. The demand for foods produced from animals, such as meat, dairy products, and eggs, has been acknowledged to have increased recently. The FAO estimates that, by 2050, they will need to produce 60% more food to meet the dietary needs of 9.3 billion people on Earth. If people tried to do it by farming as normal, the resources we have would be over-utilized.

Fungal infections, which are normally associated with animals, continue to occur in people mainly as a result of human activity. Due to increased mobility and development and changes in the surrounding environment, emerging fungal infections are on the rise and need to be closely monitored. If there is a known species switching hosts or if the number of cases increases, people are known to be infected with diseases linked to animals.

Animal Fungal Treatment Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Government Initiatives - By recognizing the interdependence of human, animal, and environmental health, the government is promoting a comprehensive approach to health. One of the benefits of a government program for animal health is to increase awareness and management of zoonoses, which can be transmitted from animals to humans. Furthermore, it is necessary to improve cooperation between doctors, veterinarians, environmental scientists, and Public Health Experts to promote the health and welfare of all animal species. By fostering connections between different communities and industries that drive the animal fungal treatment market, the government programme aims to generate new and improved concepts that address the underlying issues and produce long-term, sustainable solutions for animal health and well-being.
  • Expansion of Pet Ownerships - Whenever the summer approaches, veterinarians warn pet owners to be alert for a possible fungus infection that may affect their animals as temperatures increase. In addition, health officials are informing pet owners of the potential for their animals to be infected with an uncommon fungal disease. Blastomycosis, a fungus, can be contracted by animals living in soil that resembles a humus. Therefore, the rivers, lakes, streams and marshes are common places where they might be exposed to it. From 1988 to 2023, approximately 66 % of US households reported that they owned at least one pet, an increase of about 18 % from the previous survey period.


  • Lack of Adequate Animal Care Infrastructure - Livestock provides a wide range of important benefits to healthy diets and survival resources. This is particularly true in developing countries, where there are limited options for nutrition-dense foods. The development of fungal treatment methods for the welfare of farm animals needs to be coordinated with the production of animal products in order to ensure that food systems are sustainable.
  • Limited Availability of Fungal Treatment in Developing Countries is set to hinder animal fungal treatment market growth in the forecast period
  • The High Cost of treatment is set to hinder market expansion in the projected period
