Veterinary Laboratory Testing Market Scenario

Veterinary laboratory testing market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. It is anticipated that the market held a valuation of USD 2200 million in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.1% over the forecast period.

The veterinary laboratory tests are usually performed to determine the cause of animal’s disorder.

Rising incidence of zoonotic diseases is one of the key factors driving the veterinary laboratory testing market. According to the Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention, around 75% of emerging infectious diseases affecting humans are diseases of animal origin. The most commonly occurring zoonotic diseases are Rabies, Ebola Virus Disease, Q fever, and others. Various other factors such as rising awareness about animal diseases, technological advancements in veterinary testing, increasing expenditure on pet insurance and favourable funding policies are also expected to propel the growth of the market.

However, high cost of veterinary testing and complications associated with the tests can hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
