Animal Artificial Insemination Market Historic Outlook Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

Until recently, owing to the limited awareness about the advantages of artificial insemination techniques, the availability of the instruments, reagents, and media was fairly limited. According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the sales in the market increased at 4.4% CAGR between 2016 and 2020.

The increasing prevalence of contagious diseases among animals, increase in meat consumption, and demand for improving food security have compelled manufacturers to come with advanced products for veterinary hospitals, clinics, and animal breeders which are the major end-users.

Availability of advanced technologies for the animal artificial breeding will lead to the healthy birth of off-springs, which can produce a high amount of proteins and dairy products. This is expected to have a positive impact on the market growth.

Contagious disease outbreaks can severely affect livestock population and cause economic loss directly and indirectly. In addition, substantial resources are required to control the disease outbreak.

Government organizations along with public organizations have given mutual economic resources for artificial insemination techniques, to prevent and control infectious diseases in livestock animals.

Artificial insemination (AI) is a process originally developed to control the spread of such diseases by avoiding physical contact between animals. Also, using the AI products such as semen extenders which have antibodies helps to prevent the transmission of bacterial diseases. This factor is also expected to have a positive impact on market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected major business and markets with disruption in supply chains and the total shutting down of activities. However, the demand for milk and milk products or animal products has increased due to lockdown, as people stayed home and preferred household meals.

This is anticipated to give a small push to the animal artificial insemination market for a short period. However, overall growth predictions remain positive for the market. As per FMI analysis, the market is likely to exhibit 5.4% CAGR between 2021 and 2031.

How Is Decline In Animal Fertility Affecting Animal Artificial Insemination Market?

Fresh semen volume, sperm quantity, and seminal plasma level at final dilution may affect the survivability of low sperm dosages. Low sperm dosages have lower quality and fertility, which is one of the drawbacks to their usage in successful artificial insemination techniques.

To ensure optimal fertility, a certain number of sperm per artificial insemination is required. This is one of the most important aspects of the artificial insemination industry and provides a scope of improvement in this space

How is Government Support Affecting Animal Health Services Influencing Market Growth?

Increase in animal production has fuelled the demand for animal health services to improve food safety systems and animal public health to protect human health. The acceptance of animal artificial insemination services, on the other hand, is strongly dependent on the country's economic, political, and institutional circumstances.

As a result, governments from numerous nations have joined forces to enhance public knowledge about animal diseases and the privatization of animal healthcare to encourage the adoption of animal artificial insemination services. Livestock Insurance is one such scheme in Europe, which was adopted to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of animal healthcare systems.

Such strong government support is expected to have a positive impact on the adoption of advanced techniques such as animal artificial insemination.

Is Semen Contamination a Key Animal Artificial Insemination Market Restraint?

Antibodies in the serum of breeding sires used for semen collection are routinely evaluated, as they are suggestive of any previous infection. Some viruses, such as the horse arteritis virus, can stay in the sperm for several weeks before showing signs of seroconversion

Semen from such animals can be a source of infections that can be transmitted to naive females. This is reducing demand and is projected to limit the global artificial insemination market's growth over the forecast period.

What are the Key Opportunities for Animal Artificial Insemination Market?

Leading industry players such as Zoetis, Sanofi, and Boehringer Ingelheim, currently dominate the global animal insemination market. Among the products offered, reagents and media segments in the artificial insemination market account for higher revenue growth rates for all these major players.

On the other hand, the other AI products such as kits, catheters, sales are done majorly by small players such as continental Plastic Corporation, Swine Genetics Jorgensen Labs, which represents huge growth opportunities to capitalize on the opportunities in the instruments segment at regional as well as international markets.
