International trade, public health, agricultural productivity, consumer confidence and companion animal-owner relationships are all dependent upon effective and increasingly specialized veterinary diagnostics products. In-vitro diagnostic (IVD) instrumentation and products have been extensively applied to veterinary healthcare; various assay forms, analytes and analyzers are transferrable from the clinical space to the veterinary clinic and laboratory. Major diagnostic methods in mainstream healthcare - immunodiagnostics, molecular testing (including nucleic acid testing), hematology and clinical chemistry - now have standard applications in the veterinary care of companion (pets) and food animals (livestock and production animals).
The companion animal diagnostics market includes IVD products - instruments, consumables, test reagents and test kits - for the diagnosis of disease and health conditions in household pets (primarily dogs and cats) as well as horses. Market performance is determined by diagnostic product demand from veterinary clinics, hospitals, reference labs, and governmental and research laboratories such as those found at universities and associated with government agricultural and animal health authorities. Test products performed by pet owners - such as pet blood glucose meters and strips, pregnancy and ovulation tests, and urinalysis strips and cups - are also included in the companion animal diagnostics market.
The primary segments of the global market for companion animal diagnostics include:
The food animal diagnostics market includes primarily immunodiagnostic test kits, molecular test kits, reagents, other consumables, instruments and other supplies for disease diagnosis in livestock and production animals, commonly cattle, sheep, goats, rams, pigs, and poultry. The report scope also includes diagnostic testing on wildlife populations such as fowl, buffalo, deer, elk, moose and boar that are capable of transmitting diseases to human or food animal populations. The performance of the food animal diagnostics market is determined by the prevalence of infectious food animal diseases in a country or global region.
Major product segments in food animal diagnostics include:
