AV05 Coccidiosis Treatments

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.


CPL’s client had developed a feed additive based on bioactive compounds that demonstrated efficacy against Eimeria, the parasite responsible for coccidiosis. The objective of this project was to assist the client in assessing the potential market for the product by providing details of the market for production of broiler and other meats, the cost of coccidiosis to the industry, and an estimate of demand for new products to control Eimeria parasites.


CPL used scientific literature, regulations databases, industry news and expert interviews to complete this report. We provided our client with transcripts of interviews.

Following completion of this project, CPL’s client invested in the target company.
