The Russian market of veterinary products has grown to 619 million dollars

Sergei Lakhtyukov, the Executive Director of the Russian Veterinary Association, during the First swine Summit, said that according to the 2016th results, the market volume of the Russian veterinary products grew by $25 million and reached $ 169 million (excluding products for household animals and cattle meat production).

As experts say, the market directly depends on the development dynamics of the livestock sector, and because last year its driver was swine production, sales of veterinarian products for swine has increased more than for poultry and cattle. From $171 million in 2015th to $195 millions in 2016th. Volume market for poultry products increased from $268 to $271 million, and decreased for dairy cattle from $154 to $153 million, due to the herd reduction.

Market structure for the veterinary products is similar to the one in EU and US, noted Lakhtyukov, 39% are vaccines, 34%-antibiotics, 10%-vitamins and feed additives, 9% are hygiene and disinfectants and 8% miscellaneous. At the same time, there are types of products, in which domestic companies are at least as good as foreign ones, the expert said. For example, their share in the market for injectable and oral solutions of antibiotics was 50%; Antiparasitic injection solutions — 60%, oral powders — 65%; Injection solutions of vitamins, micro- and macroelements — 55%.

For many types op products import dependence remains high, the average proportion of domestic products is estimated at 39%. 90% of anti-mastitis gels are imported from aboard, the share of imported oral anti-inflammatory products reaches 80%, antibiotics and antiparasitic products in the form of pills reach- 75%.

At the same time, the expert emphasized that the export of Russian veterinary products is growing, and they are supplied not only to the CIS countries and the EEU. Last year, Russia sold veterinary products to Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, Latvia, Bulgaria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, etc. However, Lakhtyukov specified that in general, exports do not exceed 10% of the domestic market, but added that this figure is increasing.

Another positive trend in the veterinary industry is the gradual cleansing of the market from falsified products. «Unfortunately, the» gray «sector still remains, — Lakhtyukov admitted. «The Russian Veterinary Association, together with the Ministry of Agriculture, continues to fight against counterfeiting, shadow production, and imports.»
