Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

Global Animal Imaging Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rise in Zoonotic Diseases Across the GlobeAbout two million individuals each year, primarily in low- and middle-income nations, die from neglected zoonotic illnesses. For the prevention and protection of agronomic health, effective management and control of infectious diseases have become essential. Hence a favourable environment for the expansion of the global animal imaging market would be created by the growing demand for early detection of these zoonotic illnesses through suitable diagnostic tests.
  • Rapid Urbanization & an Increase in Disposable IncomesChina's urbanisation has grown quickly over the past ten years, from 32.93% in 2007 to 60.6% in 2019 and 65.5% in 2025, respectively.
  • Growing Number of Pet Owners: The United States ranks fifth in terms of pet ownership and third in terms of cat ownership. 70 percent of US customers own at least one pet, with 50 percent owning dogs and 39 percent owning cats.
  • Surge in Demand for Veterinary Services: Comparing January to June 2022 to the same period in 2021, Joii Pet Care observed an approximate 14% rise in veterinarian consultations.
  • Technology Advancement in Animal ImagingClinical and preclinical imaging have benefitted greatly from the use of multimodality imaging, particularly PET/CT. According to clinical examples, combining anatomical features revealed by CT scans and functional data from PET scans into a single image with high fusion accuracy creates a sophisticated diagnosis tool and research platform.


  • High Cost of Imaging Services
  • Inadequate Reimbursement Policies
  • Stringent Government Regulations for the Use of Animals in Research

The high-resolution imaging services, such ultrasound, X-rays, MRI, or CT scans, that are utilised to identify minor issues in the animals are typically very expensive. The diagnostic technology also requires large installation and operational costs, which drives up the price of services. Hence this factor is expected to hinder the growth of the market.

The global animal imaging market is segmented and analysed for demand and supply by animal type into small animal, and large animal. Out of which the small animal segment is anticipated to hold the largest revenue by the end of 2031, backed by increasing adoption of animals. Every year, almost 4.1 million animals from shelters are adopted, of whom 2 million are dogs and 2.1 million are cats. Also, to rise in spending on medication of animals in order to improve their health is also expected to boost the growth of the market. However, the large animal segment is estimated to grow with a highest CAGR of 6.81% over the forecast period.
