The introduction of various pet insurance policies is solely increasing visits to veterinary healthcare centers or clinics.
Shortage of veterinarians
There is a decreasing number of veterinarians due to fewer training programs. Reluctance to adopt new technologies in undeveloped countries is a significant attribute for veterinarians' shortage in these places. Stringent rules and regulations are a significant challenge. Government authorities are imposing strict rules and regulations to approve a vaccine. It remains a major challenging factor for the key players. Some vaccines are unavailable against livestock vector-borne pathogens is hampering the growth rate of the market.
Increasing investments in veterinary hospitals
Increasing investments in veterinary hospitals to ensure quality services is a significant factor anticipated to present growth opportunities for the market. The rise in the concern towards animal healthcare is lavishing the demand of the veterinary healthcare market. Also, growing incidence of various health disorders among animals are ascribed to bolster the market's need. Pet lovers seek for best treatment procedure at any cost, which is also impacting the growth of the market towards positive. Increasing the livestock population is another attribute focused on expanding the demand of the market. Furthermore, people's need for quality poultry products for a healthy lifestyle is likely to extensively outshine the market's need.
Fluctuations in the availability of raw materials
Fluctuations in the availability of raw materials and the unavailability of vaccines for some diseases restrict the market's demand. Additionally, increasing regulation on antibiotics is expected to remain a major challenge for the market. Apart from that, growing costs regulation related to animal testing is also a significant hurdle for the growth of the veterinary healthcare market.
Shortages of veterinary medicines and supply disruptions were observed in several countries, primarily due to the temporary lockdowns of manufacturing sites, export bans, and increased demand for medicine for the treatment of COVID-19. Governments are taking measures to mitigate the supply of medicines. For instance, in 2020, the European Medicines Agency issued guidance for companies responsible for veterinary medicines with respect to adaptations to the regulatory framework, primarily to address the challenges faced during this pandemic. Also, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in July 2020, recommended certain guidelines to veterinary professionals for the treatment of companion animals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The livestock animals segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
Livestock animals such as cattle and poultry are expected to experience higher medicalization rates during the forecast years. In emerging economies such as the Philippines and Vietnam, earlier, poultry health was neglected, and owners used to discard the chickens in bulk during a virus outbreak. Similar was the condition of a few cattle farms. Unorganized farms were often neglected, and that hampered the overall meat production in such countries. However, the current laws have been framed to scrutinize the situation in farms and ensure maximum animal protection.
The therapeutics/drugs segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Therapeutics/drugs segment comprises of vaccines too.Vaccines are comprised of viruses, bacteria, or other disease-causing organisms that have been killed or altered so that they cannot cause any disease, thus, boosting immunity. Vaccines are being manufactured that contain genetically engineered components derived from those disease agents.
Region with largest share:
North America is projected to hold the largest market share owing to the increasing chronic diseases among animals. The US is the leading country with the highest shares of the market. The introduction of pet insurance policies and creating awareness over the availability of the different treatment processes for pet animals are anticipated to fuel the market's growth rate. Increasing expenditure on veterinary healthcare in the US is solely accelerating the market demand. Some people also treat animals as family members in these countries, hugely impacting the market's growth rate.
