MARKET RESTRAINTS:

Limited adoption of veterinary software solutions in several countries is one of the key factors hampering market growth. Many veterinary practices still have been depending on traditional methods to manage their operations despite the availability of veterinary software solutions. High costs associated with the implementation and maintenance of veterinary software solutions are another significant obstacle to the growth rate of the market. These high costs are unaffordable to small and independent veterinary practitioners. The complexity of veterinary software solutions and the scarcity of skilled professionals to handle the operations with veterinary software in some countries further hinder the global market growth. Lack of interoperability, security concerns and limited features of veterinary software solutions further inhibit the growth rate of the market.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global veterinary software market:

The outbreak of COVID-19 is expected to have a significant impact on the veterinary software market's development. Veterinary facilities are considered vital services in most nations, and they have remained functional even throughout the global lockdown. This has made a major contribution to the continued revenue generation of veterinary practices, which has resulted in the market's growth. Appointment management, billing and invoicing, boarding management, patient records, prescription labeling, reminders, and treatment management are made easier with veterinary software. For large animals, small animals, or mixed specialty practices, veterinary software vendors provide tools for managing single or multi-veterinarian practices. Patients' daily routines have also been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has resulted in social isolation and lockdowns around the world. Many patients, understandably, suffer from loneliness, which has a negative effect on their mental health. As a result, many of them bought companion animals during the lockdown. Furthermore, the fear of spreading novel coronavirus has increased veterinary practice involvement, benefiting the market's growth.
