Global Animal Genetics Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Prevalence of Animal Infectious Diseases- Based on the report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it was stated that 6 out of 10 infectious diseases are spread from animals to people. Furthermore, nearly 450,000 illnesses are caused by animals annually.To provide a better cure for certain diseases, it is quite helpful to understand the cause. A wide array of diseases is spread by animals such as, hookworms, ringworms, salmonella, parrot fever, Lyme disease, and others. For instance, in 2018, approximately 20,000 confirmed cases of Lyme disease were observed in the United States. Hence, knowing the genetics of animals becomes useful to avoid such serious medical conditions.

  • Rising Consumption and Production of Meat Globally- As of 2022, the production of meat is estimated in million metric tons for pork (~100), sheep (~15), beef (~70), and poultry (~125).

  • Increment in the Demand for High-Quality Protein Owing to the Rising prevalence of Malnutrition- In 2021, approximately 20% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa was noticed to be suffering from malnutrition while the figure for Southern Asia remained at around 15%.

  • Higher Inclination Toward Pet Ownership - In 2021-22, almost 65% of the households in the USA were noticed to own a pet summing up to nearly 85 million families.

  • Increasing Demand for Animal Protein-For instance, in 2021, the protein consumption from fish was estimated to be around 150 million metric tons while for beef and veal, it was projected to be around 1.5 million metric tons.


  • Availability of Alternatives such as Lab-Based Meat

Ongoing experiments on producing organic meat and rising awareness toward animal lives are estimated to hamper the growth of the market over the forecast period. Furthermore, the consumption of meat can promote food contamination, hence, people are being more disinclined toward the consumption of meat.

  • Higher Cost Associated with the Specialized Breeding Programs 
  • Lack of Skilled Medical Professionals and Equipment

The global animal genetics market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by animal type into canine, bovine, porcine, poultry, and others, out of which, the porcine segment has the highest market share of 31.15% in 2022. The growth of the segment can be accounted to the rising number and demand for pigs to obtain pork, hence, the need for animal genetics emerges to avoid any diseases spreading from pigs across the globe. For instance, the number of pigs was highest in China with over 400 million heads while in the United States, the were projected to be nearly 70 million heads in 2022.

Global Animal Genetics Market Regional Synopsis

The North America animal genetics market, amongst the market in all the other regions, is projected to hold the largest market share by the end of 2033. The growth of the market can be ascribed to the surged demand for high-quality breeds and the rising consumption and production of pork. As of 2021, approximately 25,000 million pounds of pork were produced in the U.S., up from almost 24,000 million pounds in 2018.

Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
