Key Market Trends

The Phenothiazines drug Segment is Expected to Account for the Largest Market Share During the Forecast Period

The phenothiazines segment is estimated to have the highest share of the animal sedatives market during the forecast period, as they aid to lower dopamine levels and further depress some areas of the reticular activating systems. Acepromazine is one of the most regularly used phenothiazines, which can be used alone or in combination with other sedatives as pre-operative drugs, to relieve travel anxiety, and to avoid allergies and itching in animals.

The parent ingredient of all medications is a phenothiazine. They are employed as tranquilizers, preanesthetic drugs, antiemetics, and for the treatment of CNS agitation in domestic animals. Chlorpromazine (marketed as Thorazine and other trade names), thioridazine (Mellaril), and trifluoperazine are three of the most often utilized phenothiazines (Stelazine).

Animal diseases such as Rabies, Canine distemper, Leptospirosis, Canine influenza, Canine parainfluenza, etc. are some of the most common risks for the animal's well-being. The animals are provided sedative drugs for their cure from zoonoses, phenothiazines being the parent ingredient for the most regularly used sedative drugs. Hence, the increase in the demand of this segment will drive the overall animal sedative market.

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

The presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure, and strong adoption of the latest diagnostic technology are all factors that contribute to this supremacy. This, together with the rising frequency of animal diseases, will help this region maintain its market dominance in the years ahead.

The North American region is estimated to be a potential segment for the animal sedative market as it generates most of the revenue from this region, because of the presence of comparatively higher animal health expenditure, high awareness levels, and a large number of medical research and trials. North America is expected to dominate the animal sedative market during the forecast period because of the government initiatives of monitoring and implementation of rules and regulations on sedatives drug manufacturing companies.
