Veterinary Diagnostics Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The Veterinary Diagnostics Market at a global level is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2022 to 2027.

Veterinary diagnostics are tests that aid in the diagnosis and identification of various diseases in animals. The procedures are carried out using multiple ways that include excrement, blood, and tissue samples. The innovative procedures and technology that have been developed for human diagnostics are heavily employed in veterinary diagnostics as well. In addition, the veterinary laboratory offers a secure environment for medical testing of infectious agents or poisons in diagnostic samples from animals. Animal samples are provided for examination by veterinary experts representing research, animal owners, public health, or wildlife management agencies.

According to the 2017 APPA study, the canine population in the United States rose from roughly 69.9 million in 2012 to over 89.7 million in 2016. In addition, the feline population rose from around 74.05 million in 2012 to approximately 8.66 million in 2016. According to an APPA poll, 85 million households in the United States owned a pet in 2017. 

Due to a shortage of equipment in public health laboratories to do high-throughput nucleic acid extraction, the United States has only completed 27,157 tests by March 12, 2020, according to The Atlantic Monthly Group's COVID Tracking Project.


Y-O-Y growth in the prevalence of animal zoonotic diseases is majorly driving the growth of the animal health diagnostics market.

As per the CDC's data in 2017, tens of thousands of Americans suffer from zoonotic diseases every year. This growing prevalence has become a global concern, favoring the veterinary diagnostics market to reach better growth heights.

The demand for the veterinary diagnostics market is significantly growing over the past few years by introducing technologically improved products that have positively impacted market growth. The global veterinary diagnostics market is primarily driven by the growing companion animal population and increased animal care prevalence. In addition, the growth in the pet insurance market and increasing animal healthcare expenditure is further accelerating the growth of the global veterinary diagnostic market. Moreover, the skilled veterinary practitioners and increasing income levels of the people in the emerging countries are expected to provide additional support to the market's growth rate.


However, high-cost expenditure for pet care and the unavailability of healthcare facilities for the animals in the rural areas restrict the veterinary diagnostic market growth. In addition, a lack of awareness among pet owners over the availability of health care treatments for animals impedes the market's demand. Furthermore, the lack of skilled staff in veterinary hospitals is also limiting the market's growth rate.

Impact of COVID-19 on the veterinary diagnostics market:

The growth rate of the global veterinary diagnostic market is slightly declined due to the situations caused by the coronavirus. Many countries imposed a nationwide lockdown to control the spread of COVID-19. The COVID-19 had changed the market activities and the structure. Unlock guidelines have encouraged the increase in the number of treatment procedures for animals in 2020. All the activities were resumed with high preventive measures in the diagnostic centers and hospitals. They predicted that the global veterinary diagnostics market would reach its normal position by the end of the first half of 2021.
