Animal Biotechnology Market: Overview

Animal biotechnology is the use of biotechnological techniques to enhance the fitness, production, and biological characteristics of animals. It comprises a wide range of methodologies and technologies aimed at understanding, altering, and using animal biological functions for a variety of objectives.

These goals include improving animal breeding and genetics, increasing animal well-being and nutrition, discovering novel veterinary medications and even manufacturing useful biomaterials from animal cells.

Rising demands on sophisticated genetic techniques to improve livestock production, such as selective breeding, gene editing, and cloning, are driven by the need to fulfill rising global food demand sustainably.

Furthermore, currently exists an increase in research and development activities aimed at biopharmaceuticals originating from animals, such as antibodies and vaccines, to treat a variety of human ailments. In addition, growing awareness of animal welfare and ethical concerns is motivating the development of alternative protein sources, such as cultured meat and plant-based alternatives, which encourages innovation in cellular agriculture.

Finally, advances in precision livestock farming technology, such as sensors, IoT, and data analytics, are transforming animal health monitoring, management, and productivity optimization. These patterns represent the changing landscape of animal biotechnology, with important consequences for food security, human health, and environmental sustainability.

By product, the diagnostics tests segment held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2032. Recent diagnostics developments in the animal biotechnology industry involve the utilization of point-of-care testing, greater use of molecular methods such as PCR, and the development of multiplex assays for quick and accurate disease diagnosis.

By application, the preventive care of animals segment held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2032. Customized medicine, enhanced diagnostics, immunization breakthroughs, genetic selection, and digital health technologies for proactively tracking and oversight of animal health are among the animal-related biotechnology market’s preventive care trends.

By end user, the veterinary hospitals and clinics segment held the highest market share in 2022 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period 2024-2032. Veterinary hospitals and clinics in the animal biotechnology sector are increasingly using gene editing methods, improved diagnostics, tailored treatment, and telehealth for remote counselling and monitoring.

In North America, advancements in the animal biotechnology industry comprise an increasing emphasis on gene editing techniques such as CRISPR, increased use of precision breeding technologies, and rising demand for biopharmaceuticals derived from genetically altered animals.

Biogénesis Bagó, a biotechnology firm specializing in the discovery, manufacture, and marketing of animal welfare solutions, has acquired Spanish biotech HIPRA’s hormone product line. Biogénesis Bagó to expand its portfolio with complementary products, enter 30 new countries, reinforce its foothold in the Middle East, North Africa, and Latin America, and launch business operations in Europe.
