Report Overview

The global animal workstations market size was valued at USD 1.8 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% from 2022 to 2030. Growing research activities related to animal health and technological advancements in the market are expected to boost the market growth. Furthermore, the rising use of animal workstations for human health research activities is expected to fuel market growth. According to a report by Understanding Animal Research, the total animal usage for research purposes has been increased by around 40% from 2005 to 2019. During the COVID-19 pandemic, research activities were going on for studying the virus as well as for the development of prevention, diagnosis, as well as treatment options.

Furthermore, animal workstations are used for preventing surfaces from getting contaminated and also provide environmental as well as operator protection during animal handling for clinical researches. Hence, the impact of COVID-19 on the market was neutral. Animal workstations assist the operator to be protected from bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, toxins, hazardous substances, anesthetic gases, allergens, and physical injuries. Therefore, the product demand is increasing in veterinary hospitals as well as research and academic institutes, thereby boosting the market growth during the forecast period.

Moreover, increasing demand for veterinary surgeries is driving the market growth. Modern surgeries have various advantages, such as smaller surgical wounds and fewer stitches, giving confidence to pet parents to opt for advanced minimally invasive surgeries. The rising adoption of companion animals and increasing demand for improved animal healthcare are factors anticipated to increase the demand for veterinary surgeries.

Moreover, increasing research activities in developing countries, such as China, India, South Korea, are boosting the market growth. The growing number of strategic initiatives by various market players is estimated to boost the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in January 2021, Mopec introduced a disinfection and air purification system for lab safety. These were BF1000 Series UV-C Disinfection Hood and BF840H PurePath HEPA System.

Technology Insights

The anesthesia workstations segment held the largest market share of more than 57% in 2021 owing to the high usage of anesthesia for performing surgical procedures in animals. Furthermore, increasing technological advancements by market players are estimated to boost the segment growth. On the basis of technology, the global market is bifurcated into anesthesia workstations and others.

The others segment includes ventilated workstations and microscope workstations. The segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR during the projected period. This growth can be attributed to various product launches in the segment by major companies operating in the market.

Animal Type Insights

The small animal type segment held the largest revenue share of more than 64% of the global market in 2021. This can be attributed to the increased usage of small animals, especially rats and mice, for research purposes. As the animal welfare act does not include laboratory rats & mice (RM), so the RM numbers are often partially reported to the Government agencies. According to AAVMC, around 100 million rats & mice were used for research in the U.S. in 2019. The original number may be slightly higher than that.

The large animal type segment also had a substantial share in the market. According to PETA, around 1 million animals were held captive in laboratories or used in experiments in the U.S. in 2019. According to PETA, around 7% of dogs, 6% of pigs, 2.5% of cats, 2% of sheep, and around 23% of other covered species were used for research purposes in the U.S. in 2019. Among them, around 60% were involved in no-pain, no-anesthesia experiments, and 33% were involved in experiments that require anesthesia. On the contrary, the use of non-rodent animals for research has been decreased over the past two decades due to stringent regulation.

Application Insights

The human research segment held the largest market share of more than 89% in 2021 owing to the increasing number of human research activities for the development of novel, innovative, and technologically advanced treatment as well as diagnostic alternatives for the betterment of human health. These activities require testing on animals, which is expected to boost the demand for animal workstations.

The veterinary segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the rising product demand at veterinary hospitals for carrying out animal surgeries and other treatment or diagnostic procedures. Furthermore, the rising number of research activities for enhancing animal health products is contributing to the market growth.

Equipment Type Insights

The dual access workstation segment held the largest market share of over 27% in 2021. This equipment type is widely preferred as it consumes less energy, provides microbial, product, & allergen protection, and makes low noise. On the basis of equipment type, the market has been divided into dual access, bedding disposal, single-sided, and universal animal containment workstations.

Bedding disposal workstations are estimated to have significant demand as they are safer, productive, and easy to use as compared to other equipment types. The universal animal containment workstation segment is anticipated to demonstrate the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The equipment type uses two independently balanced ULPA filtration modules for the protection of animals, which increases its demand.

End-user Insights

The research laboratories segment accounted for the largest market share of more than 80% in 2021 owing to the rising number of research activities using animals, for human health. On the basis of end-user, the global market is segmented into veterinary hospitals & clinics, research laboratories, and others. The others segment includes academic institutes and veterinary research laboratories.

The veterinary hospitals & clinics segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period as most of the surgeries are performed in veterinary hospitals. Also, the product adoption is high in veterinary hospitals & clinics due to the high accuracy as well as cost-effectiveness offered by the equipment.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest market share of more than 52% in 2021owing to the growing product adoption in animal laboratories. The presence of major market players, such as Esco Micro Pte Ltd, Fisher Biotec, and Geneva Scientific, in the region is also estimated to drive the market growth.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing region over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing investments in the healthcare sector in countries, such as Australia, China, India, and Japan. Furthermore, growing research and development activities in the region concerning animal health products are expected to boost the market growth.
