    The challenges related to animal health

    Between 2000 and 2016, almost 360 animal disease outbreaks were recorded across 116 countries, causing enormous economic losses, impacting trade and affecting global food security. Of these outbreaks, two-thirds were caused by just five diseases, including Avian Influenza, Foot and Mouth Disease and African swine fever (ASF), highlighting the opportunities available to better target and manage livestock disease. At the same time, pet ownership has skyrocketed across the globe. Over 50% of households in major markets currently own a pet and it rises to over 80% in nations like Brazil and Argentina.

    It has become necessary and urgent to develop new and effective solutions in animal health, taking into account the challenges of this market:

      Examples of recent projects carried out for our clients in animal health

      • Building a 5-year strategy for rabies management for a leading animal health player

        We supported a leading animal health company in building its 5-year strategy for the rabies vaccination market of dogs in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

        We analyzed current and future public policies on rabies management at the human and animal levels and identified the main needs in the perspective of One health management.

        The results of our investigations allowed us to build recommendations for our client regarding the development of new products and services, geographic prioritization and customer targets.

      • Creation of a Veterinary Public Health Hub with a consortium of animal health players

        We accompanied a consortium of public and private players in animal and human health in the creation and management of a Veterinary Public Health Hub in a “One health” approach.

        We helped them define a common vision and ambition, build a roadmap and manage their projects. For example, these projects led to the creation of a Chair in Veterinary Public Health and the organization of an international scientific conference on the “One health” concept with themes such as the surveillance of emerging infectious diseases or antibiotic resistance.

      • Building a market forecast model for pet food and animal health MNCs

        We helped animal health and pet food MNCs to anticipate the possible futures for their businesses.

        Together with key industry experts and feedback from farm owners, our team developed a comprehensive market forecast model for animal production in India (chicken and buffalo), Australia and New Zealand (cattle, goat, sheep), China (pig, cattle, chicken, aquaculture) and Thailand (chicken, aquaculture).

        Our work allowed our clients to strategically define their strategic and operational roadmaps with the future outlook of the ecosystem in mind.

      • Supporting an animal health company in exploring potential new technology for pet products

        We supported a global petfood company in exploring a potential new digital technology that can be used to optimize their current products.

        To do so, our team analyzed the different types of technologies on the market, the opportunities and challenges they offer, and how they can be aligned with the consumer trends and demands.

        With this, we were able to build recommendations for the most promising technological solutions to investigate further, as well as identifying key potential partners for innovation and technological development.
