Increasing Number of Pets Adopted Worldwide will Rise the Market Growth
The growing number of pets adopted worldwide fuels the global veterinary diagnostics market. For instance, according to ASPCA, approximately 6.3 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.1 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats. Approximately 4.1 million shelter animals are adopted each year (2 million dogs and 2.1 million cats).
Additionally, Pets, such as dogs and cats, are also known for offering companionship and emotional support. Especially during difficult times, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, when people were spending more time at home and feeling isolated, individuals craved the company of a pet. Numerous studies have demonstrated that engaging with pets can help people cope with stress, anxiety, and depression.
As individuals become more aware of the benefits of pets for mental health, more people sought out pets to boost their well-being. Pet adoption has increased due to the popularity of pet-focused material on social media platforms. People were more interested in owning pets after seeing adorable and comforting pet videos and photographs. Thus above factors helps to drive the market growth.
The Rising Prevalence of Pet Animal Diseases
Globally, the rising prevalence of pet animal illnesses and their transmission to humans supported market expansion. The rising prevalence of zoonotic illnesses and their transmission to humans, increased pet adoptions and the number of veterinary healthcare professionals, and more research into veterinary disease diagnosis are driving market expansion.
For instance, according to a study published in the Faculty Reviews 2022, more than 63% of human infections have zoonotic origins, whereas the other 45% have either developed from non-zoonotic sources or co-evolved with humans. Several zoonotic-origin illnesses have recently resulted in an outbreak and have damaged the global human population. As a result, the rise of pet animal diseases contributes to market growth.
The Increasing Pet Care Costs and Shortage of Veterinarians
However, the increasing pet care costs and shortage of veterinarians are anticipated to hinder the growth of the veterinary diagnostics market. The U.S. Bureau Of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment and Wages, in May 2021, indicated that only 77,260 veterinarians are practicing for the 90.5 million U.S households with pets.
Also, the average cost of owning a pet can range from $700 to $1,100 per year, as per the type and size of pet, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Thus, it will slow the global veterinary diagnostics market growth in the forecast period.Segment Analysis
