Demand for Veterinary Anesthesia Equipment and Impact of COVID-19……..

Posted by Mrudula Anil Karmarkar on May 20th, 2021

The global veterinary anesthesia equipment market size is expected to reach USD 1.66 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., progressing at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Increasing incidence of oral diseases in dogs & cats is creating a greater need for veterinary machines for dental surgery. This, in turn, is providing numerous opportunities to the manufactures operating in the veterinary anesthesia machines market space. In addition, rising incidence of foodborne & zoonotic diseases and bacterial infections that lead to critical conditions are anticipated to fuel the demand over the forecast period. The veterinary medicine field experienced drastic technological developments in the last 20 years.

Growing number of animal health practitioners in response to advanced anesthesiology is expected to augment the demand during the forecast period. In addition, rising penetration of pet insurance is anticipated to fuel the adoption of surgical practices for animals, which will thereby boost the growth of the veterinary anesthesia equipment market. Furthermore, increasing number of pet owners is anticipated to promote the adoption of animal health care services, which is likely to drive the overall market during the forecast period.

Introduction of advanced features in anesthesia machines, such as new ventilation mode, graphical screens, and clear picture offering loops, by manufacturers is expected to fuel the adoption over the forecast period. Rising pet adoption trend, pet-human bonding, and surging consumption of veterinary care products are also estimated to provide an upthrust to the veterinary anesthesia machines market.

Recent advancements in drug development procedures in the field of animal medicine are boosting the adoption of this equipment among veterinarians. Advancements in intravenous anesthesia, research pertinent to effective drug delivery to pets, and new product approvals are some of the primary growth stimulants for the market. For instance, in July 2018 the Center for Veterinary Medicine approved anesthetic Alfaxan, which is intravenous injectable that offers an extended product shelf life.

Further key findings from the report suggest:

  • The complete veterinary anesthesia equipment segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017. The demand for integrated systems by animal health practitioners in surgical procedures is projected to increase over the forecast period
  • The small animal segment, which includes companion animals, is anticipated to witness significant growth in the coming years due to growing pet adoption and increasing concerns regarding pet health by owners.
  • Clinics & hospitals are expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period due to increasing pet owner’s preference and availability of surgeons in these facilities
  • Presence of a large number of established animal health clinics and laboratories that are consistently striving for extensive commercialization of their services in North America is bolstering the growth of the regional market
  • Asia Pacific is poised to experience lucrative growth in the coming years owing to increasing collaborations by public and private organizations to promote the adoption of animal health services
  • Some of the key companies present in the market are Mindmark, JD Medical, Smiths Medical, and Patterson Companies. The companies are involved in development of novel analgesic that gives relief to pets. There are various molecules in pipeline expecting approval during the forecast period.

Growing focus on animal healthcare is also working in favor of the market. Oral issues among cats and dogs have always remained a challenge for veterinarians. High need for equipment and machines for dental surgeries of animals is anticipated to keep the demand for veterinary anesthesia equipment strong during the forecast period.

Complete anesthesia machine was the most prominent product segment in the market in 2017. The dominance of the segment can be attributed to growing adoption of integrated solutions by veterinary professionals as these solutions offer work efficiency. Companies such as Patterson Veterinary Supply, Inc. and Dispomed ltd are offering integrated solutions to veterinarians. Increasing product offering by manufacturers is also supplementing the growth of the segment.

The accessories segment is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to repetitive use of these products in surgical procedures. This equipment can be replaced and comes in various forms.

The large animal type segment was dominant in terms of revenue in 2017. High consumption of milk, meat, and other products is resulting into strong demand for large animals and thus, demand for healthcare services to treat these animals is increasing. Growing concerns related to pet care and rising awareness among end users regarding the use of anesthesia in animals are bolstering the growth of the segment.
