Report Summary

The global animal biotechnology market was valued at USD 22.59 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5 % during the forecast period. In animal biotechnology, animals are genetically engineered using molecular biology techniques to make them more suitable for pharmaceutical, agricultural, or industrial purposes. Animals with enhanced growth rates, disease resistance, and the ability to synthesize therapeutic proteins have all been developed via the animal biotechnology market.

Animal Biotechnology Market SizeKnow more about this report: Request for sample pages

The demand for animal biotechnology is rising as biotechnology employs different diagnostic techniques to identify the various diseases that affect animals, enables the treatment of these diseases through several therapeutic options, and develops pharmaceuticals for use in animals and veterinary vaccines for preventive care. Animal health is protected by veterinary vaccines, which play an important role in preventing and controlling serious epizootic infections.

A few main growth drivers are the expanding demand for genetically altered therapeutic proteins that offer greater disease resistance, their usage in cancer treatment, and the rise in preventative care for pets. Increased public concern over animal welfare and health issues, expanding role of animals in the development of human pharmaceuticals, increase in animal adoption, and improved demand for the use of animals in agriculture, meat production, and animal-based products are all factors that support the industry's expansion. In the upcoming years, demand for animal health technology may increase as a result of the government's rising number of initiatives and programs to enhance animal health.

The market for animal biotechnology has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Delays in routine medical treatments such as immunizations have had serious adverse effects on people's health and welfare. A surplus of work following the release of COVID-19 constraints has also led to further delays in delivering these services. Veterinary visits and diagnostic procedures were sharply reduced.

The livestock segment generated the largest revenue share in 2021.

In developing countries, livestock is becoming more important for the development of agriculture. A number of countries have seen an increase in the contribution of livestock to agriculture and gross domestic product.

This segment is growing as a result of the expanding urban population, dietary and lifestyle modifications, and increased cattle output. Additionally, government initiatives for livestock vaccinations encourage biotechnology market expansion.

The vaccine segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2021

The rising prevalence of animal diseases is primarily responsible for the vaccination market's expansion. These illnesses naturally pass from animals to humans. Vaccination is crucial to disease prevention and control in order to lower the illness load in animals.

The diagnostic test segment is expected to spearhead the market growth

Some of the biotechnology market growth drivers in this sector include rising R&D expenditures from market participants, an increase in the prevalence of zoonotic diseases, rising costs for animal health care, an increase in the number of veterinary professionals, and rising disposable income in developing nations.

Additionally, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the diagnostic test segment's expansion, it is now possible to quickly identify and diagnose any medical issue as well as receive an in-depth analysis.

The preventive care of animal segment holds the largest revenue share in 2021

The category for preventive care of animals held the greatest revenue share in 2021 as a result of the expanding adaptability of companion animals. The rise of pet parents is a part of the effort to humanize pets.

In addition, a global survey done by HABRI and Zoetis found a direct link between routine veterinary care and human-animal attachment. The study, which included participants from the U.S., France, the U.K., Spain, Germany, Japan, Brazil, and China, clearly demonstrated a global phenomenon of the enhanced bond between people and pets, with 95% of respondents indicating they consider their dogs as members of the family. This human-animal bond encourages greater preventative care as a result.

The veterinary hospitals and clinics segment expected to dominate the biotechnology market

Veterinary hospitals and clinics accounted for the highest segment revenue share in 2021. The expansion of this biotechnology market is positively driven by the enormous variety of treatment and diagnostic options offered in veterinary hospitals and clinics.

The demand for diagnostic procedures is anticipated to rise due to the rise in zoonotic illnesses brought on by globalization and climate change, which will result in an increase in point-of-care testing or in-house testing in the future.

North America accounted for the biggest market share in 2021

The expansion in the region is accelerated by the presence of well-known vendors, a rise in pet adoption, increased awareness of the need for animal healthcare, rising demand for animal-based products, and improvements in veterinary healthcare infrastructure.

The need for medications and vaccines for animals in North America will rise as a result of rising healthcare costs for animals. Germany, China, Canada, and the UK are anticipated to become more important markets for the animal biotechnology industry in the next years.

Furthermore, as a result of rising middle-class household numbers, pet adoption, the introduction of new goods, and the region's high need for animal proteins, the Asia Pacific region is expected to expand.
