Furthermore, rising awareness regarding treatment options for animals is also expected to contribute to the growth of the market for veterinary electrosurgery. The global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on veterinarians. From the outset of the COVID-19, the veterinary community rose to meet serious questions and challenges, transforming to serve patients and clients with creativity and commitment. The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to evolve, and conditions have varied considerably across the world. OIE has confirmed that no animals can spread this virus.

However, human-to-animal transmission has been reported in a few countries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, limited operation of veterinary clinics due to stringent lockdown norms consequently resulted in a decline in veterinary visits, thus impacting the market for veterinary electrosurgery. However, the veterinary visits have shown a V-shaped recovery during the 3rd quarter of 2020 due to the resumption of pet clinic visits and ease of norms. According to IDEXX, U.S. clinic visits increased by 6% in Q4 2020 from the last quarter, which is expected to increase the growth of the market for veterinary electrosurgery over the forecast period.

Truly incredible advances have been witnessed in the past few decades with regard to the medical practice of veterinary surgery, resulting in technological advancements in products over the years. For instance, in July 2020, Onemytis 2, a new type of electrosurgical instrument was made available in the U.K. This new unit signifies an important evolution, from analogic to digital device. Onemytis was first launched in 2014 in Italy and is broadly used in Europe mostly for ophthalmology, ENT, dermatology, and for most oncological surgeries. Onemytis has gained significant recognition from veterinary surgeons in Europe during the previous couple of years.

An increase in pet adoption is another factor to propel the growth of the market for veterinary electrosurgery over the forecast period. A lot of individuals in the U.S. got a dog in the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly 9 million dogs have been acquired by households since the start of the pandemic bringing the total number of dogs in the country to 108 million. Besides, the revolution in veterinary medicine continues to develop by leaps and bounds. Certainly, recent years have seen emerging trends in animal health and clinical advancement, comprising changes in technology.

Veterinary surgery has advanced beyond the conventional, traditional techniques, which focused on scalpels, for a myriad of surgical applications. Latest, energy-based techniques such as electrosurgery have paved the way for faster and more efficient surgical procedures. Electrosurgical Units are becoming more widespread with both routine and sophisticated veterinary procedures. Moreover, Electrosurgical Units are used in over 80% of all surgical procedures, comprising veterinary procedures. Hence, contributes to market growth.
