Veterinary Radiography Systems Market Overview
The veterinary radiography systems market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period. Veterinary radiography systems involve the majority of diagnostic medical images, which are generated in veterinary healthcare practice. A specialized vacuum tube, which produces X-rays, are used to make radiograph systems. Increase in animal adoption, rise in prevalence of injuries and diseases in animals, and the technological advancements are contributing to the market growth. However, high cost of imaging instruments, and shortage of skilled personnel can adversely affect the market growth.
Rise in Prevalence of Injuries and Diseases in Animals to Propel the Growth of the Veterinary Radiography Systems Market
Rise in prevalence of various injuries along with other painful diseases, including arthritis, periodontal diseases, and cancer in companion animals, (such as cats, dogs, and horses), as well as livestock animals (such as cattle, swine etc.) is expected to propel the market growth. Around 100 types of animal cancers have been identified till date. Cancer in pet animals are generally found in the skin, breast, bones, head and neck, abdomen, lymph system, and testicles. Leukemia is the type of cancer, which has the highest prevalence in cats, whereas mammary gland cancer and lymphoma are considered the most common type of canine cancers. According to the Equine Veterinary Journal, in 2017, oro-dental disease has been found to be prevalent in Egypt. In horses, 45.3% have moderate oro-dental disease and 8.4% were found to have severe oro-dental disease. Oral mucosal injuries (64.2%) and sharp enamel points (79.8%) were most prevalent among the equine population. As per the disease prevalence data published by the Royal Veterinary College, University of London, in 2013, out of 1000 surveyed animals, the estimated number of dogs suffering from some major diseases are as follows: 93 from Periodontal disease, 55 from Traumatic injury, 39 from Heart (cardiac) murmur, 38 from Osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease, DJD), and 28 from Arthritis.
In addition to the aforementioned factor, the increase in animal adoption, and technological advancements are expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period.
Shortage of Skilled Personnel is Restraining the Growth of Veterinary Radiography Systems Market
The lack of proper opportunities, enabling veterinarians to learn technological skills is expected to restrain the growth of the veterinary radiography systems market. According to the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association’s (VHMA) October 2016 Insiders’ Insight report, the number of available as well as skilled veterinary technicians are insufficient for satisfying the current demand, according to 41% of the respondent managers. In addition, 48% acknowledged the requirement of some college or foundational work for proper training of technicians. Similarly, 10% wanted these programs to promote a culture of professionalism, while more than 50% stated that hands-on training should be a critical aspect. A report published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2016 states that 93.8% of veterinarians in Japan acknowledged the requirement for veterinary dental treatments, also involving dental x-ray in animals, while 67.9% was actually implementing dental treatments.
In addition to the aforementioned factor, high cost associated with the veterinary healthcare practice, is another major factor which can restrain the growth of the market.
North America to Dominate the Veterinary Radiography Systems Market
North America is expected to dominate the Veterinary Radiography Systems market over the forecast period, owing to the factors, such as the rising pet adoption and increasing per capita animal healthcare expenditure. In addition, the rise in prevalence of diseases and injuries in animals has been identified as the major driving factor for the market growth. Recently, dozens of studies to identify causes and treatments of animal cancers have been sponsored and conducted by the American Kennel Club (AKC), Animal Cancer Foundation, and other foundations. For example, the Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, Indiana, United States is conducting clinical trials and thus leading the way in comparative oncology research by discovering new ways to identify and cure lymphomas in canines, involving radiography as a means to diagnose cancer. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) states that, dogs get cancer at almost the same rate as humans. However, there is less information about the rate of cancer in cats. Certain cancers, such as lymphoma, are more prevalent in cats than in dogs. The aforementioned factors are driving the growth of the veterinary radiography systems in North America.
