Equine Diagnostic Services Market: Global Size, Share, Trends, Growth and Forecast, 2022-2032

Equine Diagnostic Services Market: Overview and Definition

The equine diagnostic services market refers to the segment of the veterinary industry that provides diagnostic tests and services for horses. Equine diagnostic services are used to diagnose and monitor various diseases and conditions in horses, such as lameness, respiratory problems, and infectious diseases.

The equine diagnostic services market includes a range of diagnostic tests, including blood tests, imaging tests (such as X-rays, ultrasounds, and MRIs), and endoscopy. These tests are performed by specialized veterinarians who have training and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of equine conditions.

The equine diagnostic services market is driven by the growing demand for high-quality veterinary care for horses, as well as the increasing importance of equine health in the equestrian industry. Horse owners and trainers are increasingly investing in diagnostic services to maintain the health and performance of their animals.

The equine diagnostic services market is also influenced by factors such as advancements in veterinary technology, the availability of specialized equipment and expertise, and regulatory requirements for veterinary testing and diagnostics.

Overall, the equine diagnostic services market is expected to continue growing as the demand for high-quality veterinary care for horses increases. The market is also expected to benefit from the ongoing development of new diagnostic technologies and techniques that can provide more accurate and efficient diagnoses of equine conditions.

Equine diagnostic services are basically defined as lab testing work services for equine patients in setups such as hospital, clinics, individual labs, and on farms through equine field service. Various tests, such as genetic test and infectious diseases test are often recommended in healthy and sick equine. The interpretation of these tests in conjunction is said to enable rapid and noninvasive assessment of the major organ systems.

Evidently, equine coronavirus has raised many doubts in the minds of horse owners if equine coronavirus can affect human beings. As such, equine coronavirus cases are being invested heavily.

Accordingly, the global equine diagnostic services market is projected to expand at a CAGR of around 5-10% during the forecast period.


The growth of this market is attributed to various pertaining factors including the trend of horse riding among adults, consistent culture of horse racing and gambling that demand healthy horse, and others.

Additionally, numerous genetic tests are currently made available, which can offer insights into equine health, coat color, and even performance potential and the role genetic tests play in the equine world is expected to only increase in the near future, as genetic tests become increasingly affordable and accessible. Most tests for heritable diseases are breed specific, and some organizations require these testing’s for particular genes prior to registering breeding stallions to limit the prevalence of certain conditions in the population. This remarkably scales the equine diagnostic services market.

Moreover, infectious diseases such as equine infectious anemia, equine influenza, and streptococcus equine are largely encountered by equine on a regular basis. The increasing demand for rapid diagnosis of these diseases and proper treatment to gain optimal clinical outcomes of the equine are contributing factors that to propel the market.

Furthermore, lab testing & mobile settings are facilities that have all the necessary reagents, kits, instruments, software, and technicians with the required skill set to perform sophisticated tests such as molecular diagnostic tests. This makes reference laboratories as preferred choices, especially among small private clinics and hospitals. These factors are likely to boost the market in the future.

Due to the world-wide impact of the global covid-19 effect, the key market players in the global equine diagnostics service market have taken initiatives for conducting webinars and podcasts to educate pet owners about the repercussions of equine coronavirus. Consequently, companies around the world are continuously making efforts to conduct the necessary covid-19 tests meant for horses to prevent the exposure towards the infection.

Also, focusing on strategies such as product launch, innovation and merger & acquisition to sustain amidst fierce competition is increasing among top players. In June 2020, The Veterinary Genetics Laboratory (VGL) reportedly introduced its new type 1 polysaccharide storage disease (PSSM1) test as a standalone at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine as part of a health panel for horses.

However, lack of awareness is impeding the growth of the market.
