The genetic disease tests segment accounted for a larger share of the animal genetic testing services market

In 2022, genetic disease tests accounted for a larger share of the animal genetic testing services market. The overall demand for genetic disease tests is mainly driven by the growing need to increase the productivity of livestock animals and prevent the occurrence of genetic diseases. Due to the growing population and urbanization, the demand for animal food products has increased in recent years. This escalation has drawn the attention of breeders towards genetic disease testing to ensure better animal productivity.

The genetic materials segment will grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The genetic materials segment is estimated to grow at the highest during the forecast period. The growing demand for animal food products, especially dairy and meat products, is a major factor driving the adoption of genetic materials. Technological advancements and the use of biotechnology in genetic material transfer also contribute to the growth of this market. However, strict government regulations on genetically modified animals and foods in EU countries are expected to restrict the growth of the animal genetic materials market to a certain extent. Some of the major players operating in this market are Genus (UK), URUS (US), CRV Holding (Netherlands), Semex (Canada), LIC (New Zealand), and Accelerated Genetics (US)

Asia Pacific will grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
