Additionally, the market for Veterinary Chemistry Analyzer is predicted to grow as a result of the increased demand for pet insurance and an increase in pet adoption globally. The demand for pet insurance has grown as a result of rising veterinary expenses. Pet diagnostic tests can be expensive, and the high expense of such diagnostics deters many pet owners from choosing treatment options. For eligible accidents and diseases, the majority of pet insurance policies will pay for diagnostics and treatments. For instance, if the "Preventative and Wellness" package is added to a Lemonade pet health insurance policy, annual wellness checkups, pet diagnostics such as x-rays, cytology, bloodwork, lab work, urinalysis, a heartworm test, and more will be covered.

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the global economy; has disrupted customers', suppliers', and vendors' operations. The pandemic also negatively affected certain elements of business and operations, financial conditions, and others. In the early months of the novel coronavirus pandemic, veterinary facilities showed a considerable decline in animal healthcare compliance. Public health organizations restricted veterinary services to emergency care. They also urged pet owners to avoid elective surgeries. The dynamics of the industry are anticipated to be hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic disruption in the provision of animal wellness care services as well as the decline in business owing to less demand.

However, an unprecedented rise in the adoption of companion animals to alleviate psychological stress imposed on by the coronavirus pandemic may promote industry recovery in the coming years. The number of domestic pets adopted by Germans during the pandemic increased by one million, to around 35 million, according to a Deutsche Welle study. Similarly, as per The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) data, approximately one in five households acquired a dog or cat since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, the growing prevalence of animal-to-human infections and the increasing demand for animal protein may possibly promote the demand for veterinary chemistry analyzers.

Clinical diagnostics are now accessible, affordable, quick, and simple to use since the development of point-of-care testing. The importance of this platform resides in its ability to enable patients to monitor their individual health status more often in the comfort of their own homes, allowing for the earliest possible diagnosis of diseases. For instance, a veterinary glucometer is attributed to its ease of use in clinical settings, on the workplace, or at home. An easy-to-use veterinary blood glucose monitoring system, AlphaTRAK from Zoetis is available for both cats and dogs. Additionally, a rise in the prevalence of diabetes in animals is another factor that increases the demand for analyzers.

In veterinary medicine, the overuse and misuse of antimicrobials is, in large part, accountable for the development of antibiotic resistance. Antimicrobial resistance is currently regarded as one of the major concerns to public health globally. Chemistry analyzer tests could enable veterinarians to identify if a patient's sickness is caused by bacteria earlier in the course of treatment, resulting in the prescription of fewer antibiotics when they are not necessary. As a result, this makes a significant contribution to reducing the overuse of antibiotics and promoting good antimicrobial stewardship, which in turn encourages overall market expansion.
