Factors such as rising consumption for animal-derived protein, growing population and rapid urbanization across the globe, increased adoption of genetic services and advanced genetic technologies for larger-scale production and quality breeds, and growing focus on identifying superior breeds are likely to boost the growth of the Animal Genetics Market. However, shortage of skilled professionals in veterinary research and technicians for performing advanced genetic services is a major factor restraining the growth of this market.
What the Market Looks Like?
Predicted to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period, the Global Animal Genetics Market is estimated to reach $5.8 billion by the end of 2022. North America dominated the market in 2017; this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.
On the basis of type, the semen market is categorized into bovine semen, porcine semen, canine semen, equine semen and semen for other animals such as sheep, goat, and cat. Bovine semen is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing demand for meat and milk across the globe, and the increasing need to produce high yielding cattle to cater to the growing global demand. This is also propelled by the huge amount of bovine semen being traded internationally for the artificial insemination of cows subsequent to the opening of trade regulations across the global animal genetics market.
Based on animal genetic services, the genetic disease test segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to the increasing adoption of genomic disease tests to prevent economic losses and loss of productivity of farm owners.
Based on genetic material type, the semen segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing adoption of artificial insemination (AI) and semen sexing in the breeding of cattle, pigs, sheep, goats.
