North America Veterinary Artificial Insemination market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic presented several challenges for the market. This included challenges in performing AI procedures on-site, dampened demand for AI products and services, risks, and uncertainty due to fluctuating consumption patterns across several key markets. However, the pandemic, along with other break-out diseases during the period such as the African Swine Fever (ASF), highlighted the need to produce superior livestock to secure the food source. To safeguard employees and farmers against COVID-19, in June 2020, the Animal Husbandry Department of India launched a program. Under this program, the department offered telephonic assistance to animal farm owners. In addition, artificial insemination services were being delivered to farmers at their doorstep during the lockdown period. Such supportive initiatives have contributed to the growth of the market.

The increasing adoption of artificial insemination services is a key market driver.Veterinary AI service providers offer expertise in performing AI procedures for various animal species, including cattle, horses, pigs, dogs, cats, and others. These professionals are skilled in semen collection, processing, and insemination techniques, ensuring the proper timing and accurate placement of semen to optimize conception rates.Artificial insemination service providers often offer comprehensive reproductive management programs that encompass the entire breeding process. This may include estrus synchronization, reproductive health assessment, fertility testing, ultrasound examinations, and artificial insemination. They help animal owners and breeders optimize reproductive performance, maximize conception rates, and minimize the risk of reproductive disorders.

The growing number of market participants is another key driver for the market. For example, in August 2020, Cogent and AB Europe partnered to launch sexed semen services for ovine farmers in the U.K. Public sector organizations involved in veterinary AI often collaborate with private companies, academic institutions, and international organizations to access advanced AI technologies, genetic resources, and technical expertise. These partnerships help enhance the effectiveness and reach of public sector AI initiatives.Distributors play a crucial role in connecting manufacturers and suppliers with end-users. The rise of e-commerce has enabled the emergence of online platforms that also help connect AI product manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and end-users. These platforms serve as virtual marketplaces, allowing customers to browse, compare, and purchase AI equipment, consumables, and genetic materials conveniently.

Solutions Insights

Based on the solution, the market is segmented into equipment & consumables, semen, and services. The services segment dominated the market with a share of more than 40% in 2022 owing to the growing uptake of services. These include AI service execution, reproduction management, semen evaluation & analysis, genetic consultations, and training & education. The semen segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate of over 6% in the coming years.

The semen segment is further bifurcated into normal or conventional semen and sexed semen. Normal semen accounted for the largest share in 2022 while sexed semen is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is due to the increasing adoption of sexed semen and supportive government policies. In June 2021, the Indian government partnered with Genus ABS to subsidize the price of sexed semen straws. This helped bring down the price of sexed semen from USD 18 to USD 1 thus supporting dairy farmers in the Indian state of Maharashtra.

Animal Type Insights

Based on animal type, the bovine segment dominated the market with a share of about 40% in 2022. The swine segment, on the other hand, is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR of more than 6% over the forecast period. This is owing to increasing advancements in bovine and swine genetics, widespread adoption of AI in cattle and pig breeding across key markets, and the need to produce sustainable animals. DanBred, based in Denmark for example, helps offer superior bovine genetics through DanBred AI. The semen and the genetic progress of the herd can be tracked with GenePro for better accountability and ROI.

Advancements in bovine genetics can be evaluated with the genetic base change numbers that quantify the actual progress made for each trait within a breed. The base change represents the adjusted Predicted Transmitting Abilities (PTAs) for each trait and every animal in a breed. The number is reset to zero every 5 years. This ability to quantify change has promoted notable growth in genetics.  Alta Genetics Inc. for instance, reported notable progress for the production traits in both Jerseys and Holsteins from 2015 to 2020. The company’s Holstein and Jersey breeds were rated favorably for production traits such as milk, fat, protein, Daughter Pregnancy Rate (DPR), and more.

Distribution Channel Insights

Based on the distribution channel, the market is segmented into private and public distribution channels. The private segment held the largest share of the market in 2022 and is also projected to grow at the fastest CAGR of over 6% in the near future. This is due to a growing network of private companies and organizations involved in the distribution and supply of artificial insemination products and services to veterinary clinics, breeders, and livestock owners. These entities play a crucial role in making AI technology and genetic materials accessible to end-users.
