Key Market Trends

Spot-On Products are Expected to Grow With High CAGR Over the Forecast Period

Spot on is the liquid insecticide available in a small tube. The product is applied directly to the skin, usually over the shoulder blades or down the back.

The active ingredients may include deltamethrin, dinotefuran, fipronil, imidacloprid, indoxacarb, permethrin, pyriproxyfen, and selamectin. They may vary depending upon the brand.

The products contain neurotoxins that are specific to adult parasites. Some products also contain ingredients to prevent larvae from developing. The oily liquid, in which the medication is dissolved, helps spread the product over the surface of the skin, onto the sebaceous glands. The products can potentially kill and repel parasites.

Generally, the price of the spot-on flea and tick products range from USD 20 to USD 500. Spot on flea and tick products can be of many types, based on the size, weight, species, and age of animals.

The key global players, who manufacture spot-on flea and tick products, include Bayer and Merial, among others. The popular brand names include K9 Advantix, Advatage, Frontline, Activyl, Only Natural Pet, Parastar, Revolution, Vectra, etc.

The field of flea and tick products has been observing many significant developments, across the world. For example, in March 2018, Ceva Animal Health launched a new spot-on product called Duoflect, which contains a new formulation of fipronil and (s)-methoprene. The product offers 100% longer duration of action against fleas in cats (eight weeks), and 13% longer duration in dogs (nine weeks), than that of the fipronil combination.

United States to Dominate the North America Region

Increasing adoption rates of companion animals, growing disposable income, and rising per capita animal healthcare expenditure are the factors contributing to the major market share of the US flea and tick products market.

According to the Parasite Prevalence Map published by Pets and Parasites, the prevalence of anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, and Lyme disease in the United States, in 2017, was estimated to be 3.85%, 3.04%, and 6.27%, respectively. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, during 2004-2016, seven new germs, spreading through the bite of an infected tick, were discovered in the United States alone, which also had the ability to infect people and cause zoonotic diseases.

Additional capacities at the state and local levels are required, in order to reduce the propagation of these diseases and respond to outbreaks effectively, by tracking, diagnosing, and reporting cases, controlling mosquitoes and ticks, and preventing new infections. In addition, growing awareness about pet health among pet owners and the rise in product innovation, such as new formula launches, are some other major factors driving the growth of the US flea and tick products market.
