Report Description

Veterinary Diagnostics plays an important role in animal disease diagnosis and its management. The practice of veterinary diagnostics is essential to prevent even a small outbreak of disease among the entire animal community. High-quality diagnostics are important to provide appropriate treatment and to ensure the overall well-being of an animal

The global veterinary diagnostics market is growing exponentially, driven by the increasing number of companion animals all over the world. The most common companion animals adopted as pets are dogs and cats. For instance, As per the “WorldAtlas” statistics of 2021, the global dog population is around 900 million and rising, with the global cat population is about 600 million. Also, approximately 470 Million dogs were kept as pets, and around 370 million pet cats were in the world.

Zoonotic diseases, also known as Zoonoses is an infectious disease that is transmissible from vertebrates to human beings. More than 200 types of zoonoses are known now. Nearly, 75% of all infectious diseases that affect humans are zoonoses. Also, whenever a new communicable disease is diagnosed, 3 out 4 diseases have been originated and transferred. Apart from this, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year 2.5 billion cases of diseases are zoonoses. Also, zoonoses are the cause of nearly 2.7 million deaths worldwide surpassing the number of deaths due to diabetes and car accidents. Given these facts, there is a growing need to prevent such diseases which can be done by regular health checkups and diagnostics of animals. Thereby, increasing the demand for veterinary diagnostics all over the world.

Furthermore, the growth of the veterinary diagnostics market can be attributed to the rising pet population and the expenditure on animal care including veterinary and other services all over the globe. For instance, more than 50$ billion per annum is spent by Americans on their pets. Also, the annual expenditure on veterinary and other pet services in the United Kingdom was approximately USD 4.9 billion in 2017 which raised to USD 6.75 billion in 2019. While, In 2020, this value was decreased to nearly USD 3.9 billion due to the worldwide pandemic. Other factors driving the growth of this market are rising disposable income and increased consumption of animal-derived food products including meat and dairy products.
