The veterinary reference lab market is segmented based on the type of service, application, animal, and region. Due to lockdown restrictions and social distancing protocols due to COVID-19 across various countries through the first half of 2020, the market saw a small dip in the number of veterinary clinic visits for routine testing. However, with the launch of new test kits for COVID-19 testing in pets, the second half of the year is expected to see a rise in the total number of tests in reference laboratories, thus compensating for the loss in revenues across the first two quarters.
The immunodiagnostics segment accounted for the largest share of the veterinary reference lab market, by type of service, in 2019.
Based on the type of service, the market is segmented into clinical chemistry, immunodiagnostics, hematology, urinalysis, molecular diagnostics, and others. In 2019, the immunodiagnostics segment accounted for the largest share of the veterinary reference laboratories market. The low cost, low procedural complexity, and greater adoption due to ease of training are some of the key advantages supporting the adoption of this service.
Clinical pathology is the largest application segment of the veterinary reference laboratories market
Based on application, the veterinary reference laboratories market is segmented into clinical pathology, bacteriology, virology, parasitology, productivity testing, pregnancy testing, and toxicology. In 2019, the clinical pathology segment accounted for the largest market share.
