By product type, the animal parasiticides are classified into three major segments, namely, endoparasiticides, ectoparasiticides, and endectocides. These product segments are further sub-segmented depending on the formulation type. The endoparasiticides are classified into feed additives, injectables, oral liquids, tablets (oral solids), and other.

On the basis of animals, animal parasiticides market is segmented into two major categories as companion animals and food producing animals.

The overall growth in the animal parasiticides market is largely driven by rising concerns regarding zoonotic diseases; an upsurge in the investment from government organizations, non-government agencies, and leading market players; increasing demand for animal protein and animal-based food, especially in the emerging markets in APAC and Latin American region; implementation of animal welfare acts in developed countries; availability of new broad spectrum parasiticides product offerings from leading players; and an upsurge in the adoption of pet animals.
However, stringent regulations for registration and approval of animal parasiticides, restrictions on the use of parasiticides in food producing animals, expensive and time consuming R&D activities to develop a new product, restriction on the use of specific parasiticides in certain countries, emerging species of parasites with resistance to existing parasiticidal agents restrict the growth of the market to a certain extent.
