The Global Veterinary Imaging Market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.14% to reach USD 2167.78 million by 2025. Veterinary imaging is the noninvasive method that helps to diagnose disease by making medical images of the veterinary body. We have various advanced imaging technology used for veterinary patients. Veterinary imaging instruments are used to diagnosis of chronic disease and getting medical images of animals. Notably, the increasing prevalence of zoonotic diseases, significant rise in pet insurance purchases, and increased number of veterinary practitioners are promoting the growth of the veterinary imaging market globally.
Theveterinary imaging market growth is mainly driven by increasing incidence of zoonotic diseases, increasing expenditure on pet insurance, and technological advancements in veterinary imaging. However, high procedure cost and lack of skilled veterinarians may slow the growth of the market.
Increasing expenditure on the pet is driving the growth of the market. Pet insurance covers various minor to major medical expenses such as accidents, chronic conditions, wellness, and routine care coverage, medication coverage, diagnostic testing and imaging, others. Though pet insurance does not provide 100% coverage, it reimburses around 80% of the total pet medical expenses. According to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA), North America’s pet health insurance growth was exceeded by 17.2% from 2014 to 2015. It is also reported that the total number of insured pets reached 1.6 million at the end of 2015.
Pet owners spend a lot on routine vet expenses and surgical vet visits.

Thus, with the growing spending on animal healthcare, the demand for veterinary diagnosis and the equipment required for the same will also increase, which boosts the growth and veterinary imaging market size.
