Animal Genetics Market was worth USD 4.7 billion in 2019 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 8.48%, to reach USD 7.0 billion by 2024. Animal genetics is a branch of genetics that deals with the study of inheritance and genetic variation, primarily in domestic and wild animals. Animal genetics is based on the general principles of heredity. It encompasses areas such as gene expression, animal breeding, and physical trait genetics such as coat color. Animal genetics uses hybrid, population, cytological, mathematical-statistical, ontogenetic, and twin methods of general genetics. At the commercial level, animal genetics is used for services such as genetic trait testing, DNA typing, and genetic disease testing.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

The Global Animal Genetics Market is anticipated to witness healthy growth during the forecast period, owing to a steep rise in the demand for and consumption of animal proteins and rapidly increasing urban population all over the world. To meet the rising global demand for animal products, producers are getting inclined toward animal genetics to breed high-quality livestock and secure large-scale production. A rapid increase in the number of animal diseases, the rising trend of possessing companion animals, and high prevalence of zoonotic diseases have fuelled the demand for high-end diagnostic methods such as genetic testing. Moreover, increasing investments in research and development of novel drugs and vaccines by private and government bodies are projected to propel the animal genetics market in the near future.
