Veterinary ultrasound scanners are medical devices those utilize high frequency sound waves to create an image of some parts of our body such as kidney, liver, heart and lungs. Unlike other veterinary imaging technologies, ultrasound does not require radiation for scanning, so it is the preferred method for viewing a developing fetus during pregnancy. Ultrasound equipment used for animal is similar as that with humans except the probe size used are smaller and frequencies are higher in case of animal ultrasound scanner. However, small animals require high frequency linear probe for abdominal scanning. A number of veterinary ultrasound scanners are available in the market where portable ultrasound scanners are highly efficient and effective than all other devices.
The global market for veterinary ultrasound scanner is witnessing a substantial growth currently and is expected to show a moderate growth in the future. Increasing trend of meat consumption and rising prevalence of zoonotic diseases would contribute in driving the growth of this market. It is expected that world meat exports would increase by 19% by 2022 and also meat consumption continues to be one of the highest growth recording sector among all the agricultural commodities. Thus, it would increase the demand for routine checking of the pets and farm animals. Moreover, owners are increasingly attached to their pets and are therefore willing to dedicate higher percentage of the household budget to caring for them. Thus, increase in daily disposable income of people will also significantly accentuate the global market demand of veterinary ultrasound scanners. Livestock production is also growing at a faster rate due to escalating population growth and thereby boosts the demand of ultrasound scanners. Hence, demand for effective and efficient veterinary ultrasound scanners will increase in the future. The high cost of veterinary diagnostic product and services are a factor that would restrict the global market demand to some extent. Moreover, lack of awareness about veterinary ultrasound scanners in few of the developing nations is also a factor that might restrict its demand in the global veterinary ultrasound scanners market.
Geographically, North America dominates the global market for veterinary ultrasound scanners due to increasing demand of diagnostic test for animals. Moreover, increasing awareness among people about veterinary ultrasound scanners for pet animals will also accentuate the market in North American region. Europe represents the second position in the global market due to technological advancement and increasing awareness among people. Asia Pacific is considered as an emerging market in the global veterinary ultrasound scanners market due to large number of animals (cow, buffalo, goat) are suffering from various diseases. Moreover the market for veterinary ultrasound scanners is at initial stage in Asian countries. It is expected that Asia Pacific will contribute a significant market share during the forecast period due to increasing healthcare infrastructure and growing disposable income. Rest of the World (RoW) is considered as an untapped market in the global veterinary ultrasound scanners market due to poor healthcare infrastructure in African countries.
