The global veterinary surgical instruments market is projected to reach USD 1523 Million by 2027 from USD 979.9 Million in 2020, at a CAGR of 6.5 % from 2020 to 2027. Veterinary surgical instruments are designed in a special way to perform surgical procedures on animals. The surgical instruments are selected based on their function that includes holding, pulling, clamping, cutting, crushing, and closing a wound. Surgical instruments are classified into different types based on design and function.
They are made of austenitic or martensitic stainless steel. Austenitic stainless steel is mostly used to make retractors and suction tips. All surgical instruments need to be inspected for pitting, corrosion, and rust. Veterinary surgical technicians are specially trained and certified to assist veterinarians with surgical procedures. This training is usually part of a curriculum in the veterinary technician program. The goal of veterinary surgery is quite different in farm animals and pets. In case of pets, more complex surgeries are performed with sophisticated anaesthesia techniques like in human beings. In case of farm animals, the cost of the surgery must not exceed the economic benefit in treating the illness surgically. Different types of surgery require different surgical instruments. The common surgery types include sterilization surgery, dental surgery, surgical oncology, ophthalmic surgery, and orthopedic surgery. Other common procedures include caesarean section, bloat surgery, cystotomy, wound repair, foreign body removal etc.
Driving factors such as growing demand for animal-derived food products, growing companion animal market, rising animal health expenditure, increasing pet insurance coverage, increasing number of veterinary practitioners, and increasing per capita expenditure in developed regions will fuel the global veterinary surgical instruments market. Due to a competitive market environment, product innovation is another driving factor which will add value to the global veterinary surgical instrument market. On the other hand, factors such as lack of animal health awareness and shortage of skilled veterinarians in developing countries will hinder the growth of the market globally.
In addition, health conditions associated with obesity is increasing, which include osteoarthritis, heart diseases, dental problems, and diabetes. These conditions require surgical intervention. Major breakthroughs in veterinary practices and surgical instruments such as advancements in orthotics and prosthetics, and microfracture detection in racehorses, coupled with the adoption of simulation models in orthopaedic surgeries, fuel the demand for surgeries for these conditions.
