Frequent use of rat model in animal testing will enhance the industry demand

Based on the type of animal, the market is segmented into mice, rats, fish, birds, cattle, pigs, amphibians, guinea pigs, dogs, cats, rabbits, monkeys, sheep, hamsters and others. Rat model market was valued at around USD 1 billion in the year 2018 and is estimated to show similar growth trend over the forecast period. Rat model has several advantages over other animal models. The genetic make-up or structure of the rat is similar to humans (around 99%) and that facilitates large scale research and development studies. Advantages offered by the rat model such as potential use in drug development and medical research will result in more efficient and increase in use of rat in research activities, augmenting the market demand in the future.

Embryonic stem cell injection technology is expected to pave attractive growth opportunities for researchers in genetically modifying animals thereby propelling the market trends

Based on technology, the market is bifurcated as CRISPR, microinjection, embryonic stem cell injection, nuclear transfer and others. Embryonic stem cell injection in animal testing is estimated to witness around 8.5% growth over the analysis timeframe. The high growth rate is owing to the genetic modification in animals used for biomedical research. These genetically modified animals are developed as a potential source of tissues and organs for xenotransplantation in humans. Furthermore, Various attempts have been made to create embryonic stem cell from cattle, sheep and other animals for conducting similar studies with the goal of improving animal health and productivity. Hence, aforementioned factors are expected to propel the market outlook in the upcoming years.

Increasing statistics of anatomical and physiological similarities between animals and humans will boost the market demand

On the basis of application of animal models, the market is segmented into research and development, production and quality control, academics and others. The research and development segment is further sub segmented as infectious disease, immunological diseases, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, genetic diseases, neurological diseases and others. Application of animal model in academic studies was valued at around USD 200 million in the year 2018. Growing usage of animals for academic studies will propel the animal model market statistics. Physiological and anatomical similarities between the animals and humans has resulted in prompting the researchers to explore several basic and fundamental biological research studies in animal models before applying them on humans. Hence, increase in number of animals used for basic research purpose will augment the segmental growth.

Veterinary research is set to proceed rapidly due to ongoing treatment for the animals on animal model which will further spur the market trends

The use segment is segregated as human and veterinary. The use of animal models in veterinary research is projected to grow at around 8% CAGR over the analysis time frame. All biomedical research with lab animals advances veterinary medicine and helps pets live longer, healthier and happier lives. Some of the ongoing treatments that range from improving current vaccines for dogs to develop effective cancer drugs for cats are a few factors that are expected to impel the segmental growth.  

Contract research organizations will emerge as the centerpiece for the growth of the global market outlook

On the basis of end-use segment, the animal model market is segmented as companies, organizations, academic and research institutes and contract research organizations (CRO). The companies segment is further sub segment as pharmaceutical, biotechnology, cosmetics and others. The organizations are further divided as government and non-government. The use of animal models in the contract research organizations was valued at around USD 1 billion in the year 2018. Increase in demand and adoption rate of animal models by the contract research organizations for research and development purpose will enhance the business growth in the near future.
