U.S. Veterinary Equipment & Disposables Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Several factors are driving the demand and uptake of vet equipment & disposables across the globe. Technological advancements in veterinary medicine, including minimally invasive surgeries and advanced monitoring techniques, create demand for specialized equipment like anesthesia machines, telemetry systems, and oxygen concentrators. Moreover, increased awareness about the importance of animal health and preventive care among pet owners and veterinarians drives the adoption of sophisticated equipment for diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring.The expansion of veterinary services, including specialty clinics and emergency care facilities, increases the need for advanced equipment to cater to a wider range of medical procedures.

The expanding applications of veterinary equipment in terms of therapeutic category or animal species is another key factor fueling the market growth. The Large Animal Equine Anesthesia Machine from SHINOVA for example is applicable for use in large animals such as horses and cows weighing up to 1,200 kg. In February 2019, Cornell researchersdeveloped a device to remotely measure the cardiogram and respiration patterns of small animals such as birds, hamsters, fish, and tortoises. Similar R&D initiatives are expected to propel the developments in veterinary equipment.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The veterinary equipment and disposables market exhibits low market concentration, medium growth stage, and an accelerating pace of market growth. A low market concentration is the result of a fragmented market, owing to the presence of several market players. No single company or a few dominant players control a significant portion of the market share. This intensifies the competition among manufacturers and suppliers of veterinary equipment and disposables.

Veterinary Equipment And Disposables Market Concentration & Characteristics

The medium growth stage of the market implies that the products in the market have already passed through their initial phase of introduction and adoption and are currently experiencing steady growth. During this stage, demand for veterinary equipment and disposables is expected to increase at a moderate pace as more veterinary clinics, hospitals, and research institutions adopt advanced equipment and practices.

Despite being in a medium growth stage, the market is experiencing an accelerating pace of growth. This is due to various factors such as increasing pet ownership, rising awareness about animal health and welfare, advancements in veterinary medicine and technology, and expanding veterinary services globally.

The market is characterized by a moderate level of innovation in terms of product development and technological advancements. Companies are continuously investing in R&D to improve existing products and introduce new ones.Bionet America, Inc. for instance, has developed the first wearable and wireless ECG sensor for vet clinics that simplifies ECG, heart rate, and respiratory rate monitoring.

The market experiences a moderate to high level of M&A activity. Companies engage in mergers, acquisitions, or strategic partnerships to expand their product portfolios, enhance their market presence, or gain access to new technologies or distribution channels.

Regulatory factors play a moderate role in shaping market dynamics. While there are regulations governing the manufacturing, distribution, and use of veterinary products, they are not as stringent as in highly regulated industries such as pharmaceuticals.

The threat of product substitutes in the market is moderate and depends on the product category. In terms of telemetry systems for instance, veterinarians can manually monitor vital signs, such as heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, and blood pressure, using basic tools such as stethoscopes, thermometers, and sphygmomanometers.Smartphone apps and wearable devices equipped with sensors for monitoring vital signs are emerging as potential substitutes for traditional vital signs monitors.

The market experiences high levels of regional expansion, with companies seeking to penetrate new geographic markets to capitalize on growth opportunities. Expansion strategies may involve establishing distribution networks, forming strategic partnerships with local distributors or veterinary clinics, or setting up subsidiaries or production facilities in key regions. In May 2023, Shenzhen melevet Medical Co., Ltd. launched its AM30 veterinary anesthesia machine in Greece via JMCO- its Greek distributor.

This includes advanced anesthesia delivery systems and vital signs monitors. These advancements enhance the quality of care provided to small animals and contribute to the growth of the market segment.There's a growing trend of humanizing companion animals, where pet owners increasingly view their pets as members of the family. This cultural shift leads to higher spending on veterinary care thus propelling the segment growth.

Usage Insights

In terms of usage, the surgical segment held the highest share of about 40% of the market in 2023. Surgeries are performed for various reasons, including spaying/neutering, tumor removal, orthopedic procedures, dental surgeries, and trauma management. The increasing frequency of surgical procedures across different veterinary specialties contributes to the high share of the segment.

The monitoring segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate in the near future. This is owing to increasing strategic initiatives such as partnerships, product launches, and regional expansion by market players. In July 2020, Midmark launched a multiparameter monitor for veterinary use for exam, treatment, and surgery usage. In February 2020, Bionet America, Inc. launched the BMVet PRO Series of multiparameter monitors for veterinary use.
