Veterinary Anesthesia Equipment Market Growth Factors

Growing Animal Population with an Increase in Veterinary Surgical Procedures to Drive Market Growth

The increasing number of the most common veterinary surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, skin surgeries, and tooth extractions, has been increasing the demand for veterinary anesthesia machines. The other common veterinary surgical procedures carried out globally are ACL, fractures and dislocations, belly surgery, cancer surgery, spinal surgery, ear surgery, and amputations. For instance, the total population of dogs in the U.S. in 2020 was 89.7 million. According to an American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) article, approximately 1 in 4 dogs develop neoplasia. Almost half of the dogs over the age of 10 develop cancer which can be treated through certain surgical procedures, which ultimately leads to an increased usage of anesthesia and a key driver for veterinary anesthesia devices.  

Hence, various companies with a strong product portfolio in these devices are focusing on introducing new anesthesia devices which are portable, well-calibrated, safe, and efficient. Along with such new technology, various companies focus on strategic partnerships with other players to increase the availability of veterinary equipment. In January 2019, DRE Veterinary (Avante) announced its strategic partnership with VetNOW, a company that offers innovative high-quality care for facilities related to the veterinary equipment market. Such strong trends in animal population and veterinary surgical procedures are expected to give rise to new product launches, leading to a strong surge in the market growth during the forecast period.

Surge in the Number of Veterinary Establishments to Augment Market Growth

Another critical driving factor for the global veterinary anesthesia devices market in the forecast period is the increasing number of veterinary hospitals, clinics, laboratories, and veterinarians across key countries. As the number of veterinarians and veterinary facilities increases, the demand for these devices in these establishments is witnessing strong demand.

For instance, according to the data published by Statista during the financial year of 2019, over 12,000 veterinary hospitals and polyclinics were found across India, along with numerous aids centers and dispensaries. In total, an estimated 65,000 veterinary institutions were present across the country. In a country like India, where a significant animal population exists, the increasing openings of veterinary establishments are expected to demand equipment.

For instance, according to an article published by Sixth Tone, it was reported that the number of veterinary clinics in China was 26,500. This reflects a doubling of the number of veterinary clinics in China compared to 2014.

According to an article published by the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) in October 2019, it was estimated that 309,144 veterinarians are practicing in different countries of Europe. The strong volume of veterinarians in Europe is expected to give rise to many veterinary establishments in the region. Such positive trends in the number of veterinary establishments are expected to strongly spur market growth in the global scenario.


Lack of Veterinary Infrastructure in Emerging Regions to Restrict Market Growth

Despite a critical and increased need for effective animal anesthesia devices, one of the substantial hindrances towards market growth is the lack of veterinary infrastructure in emerging regions. Despite the increase in animal population at the global level, negligent awareness and inadequate veterinary institutions may prevent many prominent companies from investing in this market, coupled with a decrease in product adoption rates. This lack of veterinary infrastructure in emerging regions is expected to hinder the market growth. It leads to decreased diagnosis rates, leading to an even lower rate of treatment through veterinary anesthesia equipment. These lower diagnosis rates lead to significantly lower procedure numbers which are further expected to limit the market growth opportunities.

For instance, according to a report published in 2021 by DownToEarth, it was stated that the treatment facilities for veterinary care were lacking in India, as many villages in India lack basic testing facilities and the required infrastructure. According to the report, India had 256 state laboratories, 56 veterinary college laboratories, 33 ELISA laboratories, and five regional and one central disease diagnostic laboratories insufficient for vast countries such as India. Furthermore, in terms of the situation in Europe, despite the increase of veterinarians in the urban regions, there has been a shortage in emerging regions such as the rural parts of Europe.

The shortage of veterinarians in rural areas of all the countries surveyed in Europe is around 78.5%. Hence, such factors have led to a scenario with decreased diagnosis rates surgical procedures, which is further expected to lower the timely animal care required in the region. Inadequate veterinary infrastructure is expected to hamper the market growth in the region during the forecast period, as a lower number of veterinary anesthesia machines will be installed.
