Growing demand for this market is due to high adoption of animal-derived food products coupled with rising prevalence of zoonotic diseases and rising adoption of veterinary diagnostics.  Veterinary biologics is gaining traction in coming years due to high animal spending and awareness about animal diseases.

RT-PCR technology has proved to be an effective diagnostic technique over DNA sequencing, on account of being early, rapid and sensitive veterinary molecular diagnostics - as it exhibits about 99% specificity. RT-PCR technology is gaining importance due to the fact that over 85% of the animals are diagnosed using these RT-PCR based home kits. Thus, this is one of the major factor that will boost the demand for veterinary home diagnostics market in the forecast period

Increasing pet healthcare spending, particularly vet care on livestock and companion animals worldwide push market player to come in pet care diagnostic segment. Manufacturers of veterinary molecular diagnostic kits are focusing on developing novel and innovative kits for treating various diseases and protect the animal health.

Ease of FDA approval for animal molecular diagnostic kits and reagents coupled with rising awareness of animal diseases among pet owners and development of novel products with high test sensitivity and specificity is promoting the veterinary molecular diagnostics market in North America and European countries. This, in turn, would further bring bundle of opportunities for molecular test kits manufacturers to open their manufacturing base in these regions.

 Most companies in the veterinary molecular diagnostics market are working towards expanding their product portfolio. Additionally, manufacturers are focusing on forward integration with partnerships with wholesalers, distributors and other channel partners to gain ownership over the value chain.

2013-2021 Veterinary Molecular Diagnostics Market Demand Outlook Compared to 2022-2028 Forecast

Sales of veterinary molecular diagnostics market grew at a CAGR of 6.8% between 2013 and 2021.

In 2021, the global market of veterinary molecular diagnostics accounts for approx. 6.8% of the overall veterinary diagnostics market that accounts around US$ 2.5 Bn.

Increased consumer spending on veterinary care is creating the demand for veterinary molecular diagnostics market. As per the American Pet Products Association (APPA), spending on vet care has soared faster than the GDP over the past two years. With the rise in pet ownership, the overall spending on vet care is booming, thereby, increasing the spending per pet as well at a significant pace.

According to an annual survey by the American Pet Products Association, Americans spent around US$ 125.1 billion on Animal care in 2020. Rising health issues among dogs and larger animals have created a larger financial burden on their owners.

High spending from people on veterinary services and rise in internet tool for knowledge sharing about animal health have made people realize the importance of regular checkups. The growing demand for veterinary molecular diagnostics over conventional procedures is further expected to fuel the growth of the veterinary molecular diagnostics market.

Considering this, it is expected for the global veterinary molecular diagnostics market to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period.

What is COVID-19 Impact on veterinary molecular diagnostics market?

Country level lockdown of big economies severely impacted the veterinary molecular diagnostics market in a negative way. This negative impact was due to limited production of diagnostic kits, transportation-related delays owing to travel restriction and driver shortages. Geographic location was also considered to be one of the significant factors for the veterinary molecular diagnostics market supply chain.

Visit to diagnostic centers were drastically reduced from third quarter of 2020 until the mid of 2021. At present, the industry is recovering at a steady rate and all the key players of the industry have shifted their focus on the efforts to balance their overall losses due to the worldwide lockdown.

Which Factors Are Restraining Demand for Veterinary molecular diagnostics market?

The rising pet care costs and demand for medical tests and relative need for expensive diagnostic equipment for veterinary molecular diagnosis is expected to restrain the overall market cost. High cost associated with these testing equipment together with limited access to these high costing diagnostic tests has come out to be the biggest hindrance, averting more frequent use of molecular diagnostic techniques. Moreover, the molecular diagnostic technique is cost prohibitive for a large number of pet owners as they do not have pet insurance scheme. Availability & preference for other lower costing diagnostic methods over the expensive RT-PCR test can be seen trending in the market.

Additionally, in various endemic countries, there has been variations in veterinary disease pattern over a period of time owing to the discovery of new virulent. On the other hand, there has also been a very limited knowledge and understanding amongst doctors, about the epidemiological pattern of these diseases in such countries, thereby, creating large gaps. This, therefore, is expected to hamper the discovery and production limit for molecular diagnostic kits to prevent spread of the disease by introducing new disease diagnostic methodologies.    All these factors are expected to retrain the growth of veterinary molecular diagnostics market during the forecast period.

Veterinary Molecular Diagnostics Market - Country-wise Insights

What Makes the U.S. a Large Market for Veterinary molecular diagnostics market?

The U.S. is estimated to account for nearly 88.6% of the North America veterinary molecular diagnostics market demand in 2022. High adoption of pets by U.S population and high involvement by the pet parents in maintaining the healthcare of their pets is expected to drive the demand for veterinary molecular diagnostics market in this country.

Increasing pet adoption rates will, in turn, increase the pool of pets in the veterinary clinics for diagnosis which will fuel the overall revenue of the veterinary molecular diagnostics, thereby, driving the growth of the market.

According to the APPA (American Pet Products Association), in 2017, an estimated 63 million households in the United States owned a dog.

Furthermore, re-emerging concept of ‘One Health’ has impacted the field of molecular testing, especially for the management of infectious diseases.
