Bovine Mastitis Market is Estimated to Witness High Growth Owing to Rising Prevalence of Mastitis in Dairy Cows


The bovine mastitis market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1497.52 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Bovine mastitis is an inflammatory infection of the mammary gland usually caused by bacterial infections in dairy cows. The major products used in the treatment and prevention of bovine mastitis include antibiotics, pleural flushes, teat dip solutions, and vaccines. These products are used to prevent new intramammary infections and treat existing infections in dairy cows.

Market Dynamics:
Rising prevalence of mastitis in dairy cows is expected to drive the growth of the bovine mastitis market over the forecast period. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, mastitis affects approximately 30% of the dairy cow population worldwide each year. Mastitis imposes huge economic losses on dairy farms due to reduced milk production, increased treatment costs, and discarded milk. Moreover, increasing adoption of advanced veterinary healthcare products by dairy farmers is also expected to support the market growth during the forecast period. In 2018, the National Animal Health Monitoring System in the United States reported that over 50% of the dairy operations used at least one type of mastitis management practice such as culturing of clinical mastitis cases, using a teat dip, and culling chronically infected cows.

The market is expected to gain significant growth opportunities due to increasing livestock population and rising demand for animal protein globally. However, stringent regulations associated with the use of veterinary drugs may hamper market growth over the forecast period.
