Several factors drive market growth in the pharmaceutical and biologics segment

There is an increasing demand for structured R&D in the niche field of aquaculture feed and pharmaceuticals with research in biologics being a crucial component of the R&D initiatives. This has facilitated faster entry of drugs, medicated feed, and vaccines into the regional markets, specifically in developed countries such as the U.S and Canada. This has fueled inorganic growth in the global aquaculture feed and pharmaceutical market by means of strategic partner selection for M&A initiatives among key players.

The global market for aquaculture feed and pharmaceuticals is also witnessing some key trends. For instance, in the U.S, the usage of extra label drugs is permitted in aquaculture under the guidance and supervision of a licensed veterinarian. The FDA does not object to the use of approved extra label aquaculture medicated feeds if these drugs meet the mandatory compliance conditions stated under the Compliance Policy Guide, 615.115, Extra-label Use of Medicated Feeds for Minor species.

This is anticipated to broaden the horizon and scope for further development of medicated feed and pharmaceuticals for aquaculture. Further, an increasing demand for in-feed medication as a prophylactic measure is being witnessed in the global aquaculture feed and pharmaceutical market.

There has been a growing adoption of in-feed medication for fish to prevent the large-scale spread of diseases. The main aim here is to medicate healthy fish and prevent any kind of contact with infected fish. The demand for medicated aquafeed is increasing in organized fishing farms across Europe, given the limited use of antibiotics across the region.

Lack of harmonization of veterinary medicinal products and medicated feed restricting market growth over the forecast period

In developed regions such as the EU, different laws have been defined for manufacturing veterinary medicines and medicated feed. For example in Germany, totally separated production lines have to be installed for compound feed and medicated feed. Further, the level of residue of veterinary medicines allowed in feed is different across different countries. This hampers market estimation and forecast.
