Veterinary Molecular Diagnostics Market to Expand Twofold by 2026; COVID-19 Crisis to Impact Demand in Near Term

global veterinary molecular diagnostics market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period 2018–2026Growing prevalence of zoonotic diseases is estimated to fuel the expansion of the veterinary molecular diagnostics market size during the forecast period of 2018 to 2026. According to CDC, zoonotic diseases are common in the U.S. as well as around the world.

According to data by CDC, estimates suggest that, 6 out of every 10 new known infectious diseases in people can be spread from animals, and 3 out of 4 new or emerging infectious diseases in people come from animals The growing fondness of people towards their pets have created a whole new medical diagnostics market for pets. A new research has been conducted to analyze the global veterinary molecular diagnostics market, which has witnessed an impressive growth with the growing number of people owning pets and also growing cases of chronic diseases witnessed among animals.

Molecular diagnostics are laboratory methods to examine the RNA, DNA, or other proteins in animals and identify diseases or the predisposition stage. Different technologies are used in the diagnosis of veterinary diseases, including conventional PCR, singleplex PCR, multiplex PCR, and real-time PCR. The growth of the global veterinary molecular diagnostics market can be ascribed to increase in zoonotic disease concerns and rise in pet ownership & spending in the pet industry.

Research and development activities are likely to play a key role in driving the global veterinary molecular diagnostics market in the upcoming decade. Some of the recent novel and ground breaking discoveries in diverse diagnostics and therapeutic tools pertaining to animal health are expected to open up new avenues for the players involved in the current veterinary molecular diagnostics market

Popularly the market is known to include diagnostic kits such as PCR kits, INAAT kits, Microarray kits, and more. These are now used for mass veterinary applications. It helps in an accurate analysis of the health issues that may occur in different animals and based on DNA testing. The diagnostics industry is actively manufacturing various diagnostic kits and reagents to control and prevent animal diseases.

The manufacturers are also motivated by the recent moves of government and FDA. The government has approved many financial grants in the sector to continue the research and development to be carried in veterinary diagnostic industry. The initiative will offer funding to the animal health professionals pursuing innovative ideas for advancements in the veterinary diagnostic medicine. The potential of molecular diagnosis segment has also pushed FDA to approve reagents used in the diagnostics in order to continue the developments.

The market is expected to continue witnessing surge in the foreseen years and reach a market value of over US$ 240 Mn by the end of 2026, growing at a stellar CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period, as projected by Future Market Insights.
