(PharmaNewsWire.Com, August 29, 2020 ) [169 Pages Report] MarketsandMarkets forecasts the veterinary software market to grow from USD 442 million in 2017 to USD 594 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.1% during the forecast period.
The major factors that are expected to be driving the veterinary software market are rising companion animal ownership and demand for pet insurance with growing animal health expenditure. However, lack of government incentives for the adoption of veterinary software, reluctance of veterinarians towards adopting new technologies, and lack of awareness about veterinary software in the developing countries are restricting the growth of this market.
The North America veterinary software market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
North America is expected to witness the highest growth from 2017 to 2022, owing to the growing demand for quality pet care. This, in turn, is encouraging veterinarian practices to adopt technology solutions such as digital imaging systems and veterinary practice management software for better diagnosis. Other growth factors include growing awareness about veterinary software and the easy availability of veterinary software and services in this region. This is because most vendors operating in this market have operations in North America. The increasing number of veterinarians is also a major driver for the veterinary software market in North America.
