Veterinary CT Imaging Market Size

Veterinary CT Imaging Market is projected to be around USD 264.2 million in 2022, with a CAGR of 6% by 2032.

Veterinary CT Imaging Market

The advancement of imaging modalities in veterinary medicine, as well as its potential to alter understanding of complex veterinary diseases are driving market growth. Trends in human medicine have crossed over to veterinary medicine. Due to advancements in technology, general veterinary practitioners in highly prosperous countries are increasingly using CT imaging. The increasing awareness on pet’s health and increasing expenditure on animal healthcare increases the uptake of veterinary services.

Moreover, other factors driving veterinary CT imaging market expansion include increased pet adoption, rising veterinary spending, an expanding number of veterinary clinics with enhanced infrastructure, new imaging centres, and increasing adoption of pet insurance. Veterinary specialists, including radiologists and surgeons, are incorporating CT imaging into their diagnostic and treatment protocols. CT has become widely used in many veterinary situations owing to the fact that it provides essential information that other imaging modalities, including as X-ray and ultrasound devices, do not. The demand for specialized veterinary imaging techniques, such as CT, is increasing as veterinarians aim to provide comprehensive and advanced care to their animal patients.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative effect on the veterinary imaging sector, along with several other sectors in 2020. Owing to COVID-19 supply delays, precautionary measures and widely imposed nationwide lockdowns in many nations have undoubtedly reduced veterinary appointments which in turn reduced imaging services.

However, the pandemic has accelerated the update of digital health and telemedicine tools in veterinary medicine. The number of veterinarians offering digital or remote consultations increased by 20% as a result of the pandemic with almost half of veterinarians (47%) offering online services.  Adopting remote support platforms has enabled veterinarians to fully utilise CT technology. Post pandemic, the veterinary care market is expected to grow considering increasing number of companion animals, increasing animal care spending, and technological advancements.  

Veterinary CT Imaging Market Trends

The market is influenced by several trends that shape its development. Some of the key trends observed in the market include increasing gains for advanced imaging modalities, rising popularity of 3D imaging, expansion of veterinary specialty services, integration of veterinary CT imaging with picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), adoption of cone beam CT technology, and focus on dose reduction and radiation safety. These trends reflect the evolving landscape of veterinary CT imaging, driven by technological advancements, increasing specialization, and the growing demand for high-quality diagnostic imaging in veterinary medicine.
