Veterinary Excipients Market

The Growing Preference for Customized Medications is Driving the Veterinary Excipients Market

Veterinary excipients are inert/delivery substances comprising animal-derived or plant-derived products used in veterinary formulations to aid medicinal substance delivery and absorption. Excipients enhance efficacy and ensure safety of drugs by providing structure, stabilizing proteins and peptides, improving solubility, and facilitating coating and release mechanisms. The growing preference for customized medications among veterinarians has boosted demand for excipients that offer targeted delivery, protect therapeutics, and improve palatability and compliance for pets.

Excipients play a vital role in developing effective and stable medications for companion animals and food-producing animals. They aid in better absorption of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) through appropriate delivery mechanisms tailored to species type and bodyweight. This ensures timely therapeutic response with minimum side effects. The consistent availability of safe, high-quality excipients sustains innovation in veterinary drug delivery technologies. The Global Veterinary Excipients Market Size is estimated to be valued at US$ 299.25 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 24% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

Compatibility and safety remain top priorities for veterinary excipient selection and use. Key market trends include a rise in plant-based excipients developed through green chemistry and a focus on multifunctional excipients enhancing bioavailability. Promising formulations utilize nano-sized plant sterols, lipids, and biopolymers with combined release-sustaining and protection abilities. Compatible multifunctional excipients facilitate sustained and targeted delivery of antibiotics, vaccines, parasiticides, vitamins, and other APIs.
