Animal Genetics Market Analysis

The Animal Genetics Market size is estimated at USD 6.57 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 8.89 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 6.23% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Animal genetics aims to produce animals with the most desirable traits. The selection of traits for adaptability to a particular condition or disease resistance in an animal can be obtained through strategic breeding. A genetically modified cow may be able to produce more milk and can be less prone to common cattle diseases, such as bovine respiratory disease complex and clostridial disease, among others, effectively increasing the cattle raisers' overall profit. For instance, according to an article published by Elsevier, in December 2021, genetic selection for increased milk yield has been a key driver of dairy intensification leading to the development of highly specialized milk production systems, with increasing herd size and heavily relying on cereals and protein sources. Hence, this aspect of animal genetics has been widely recognized, which is predicted to result in the overall growth of the animal genetics market.

The rising initiative to educate on animal genetic testing is further expected to drive the growth of this market. For instance, in June 2020, the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory (VGL) at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine launched an updated and advanced website along with several new tests for the veterinary community. In addition, in October 2021, Embark Veterinary, Inc. launched its DNA test for purebred dogs. The kit offers purebred owners unique, actionable health information to help determine diagnostic, monitoring, and treatment plans that can easily be shared with a veterinarian. Such initiatives will lead to increased adoption of genetic testing for animal health care, thereby driving the market growth. Other factors affecting the market's growth include increasing consumer demand for animal-derived protein and the growing adoption of advanced genetic technologies for larger-scale production and quality breeding.

Hence, due to the factors mentioned above, the animal genetics market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. However, the lack of skilled professionals to carry out genetics-related techniques in veterinary research is expected to hamper the market's growth over the forecast period.
