Equine Diagnostic Services Market Insights by Service Type
In the recent past, equine diagnostic practices have made substantial advances with accuracy and customization of services, which has supported the global market. In terms of services, the equine diagnostic services market can be segregated into genetic testing, phenotype testing, and infectious disease testing among others, all of which are reflecting a positive trajectory for the near future.
However, infectious disease testing is projected to account for a significant market share during the projection period. Growth can be attributed to demand for rapid testing of diseases such as streptococcus equi and equine influenza. In addition, growing awareness among horse owners about preventable ailments is also expected to contribute to the growth of the equine diagnostic services market in the years to come.
Equine Diagnostic Services Market Insights by Service Setting
In terms of service settings, the equine diagnostic services market is segregated into hospitals & clinics and lab testing and mobile diagnostics. Hospital & clinic settings for diagnostics are expected to hold a major market share through the end of the assessment period, driven by rising adoption of full body scanning practices and MRI systems to minimize risks of underperformance and injuries in horses.
On the other hand, lab & mobile testing is also expected to reflect fast growth on the back of software and technical expertise for technologies such as molecular assays.
The segment is likely to gain further support from efforts by bodies such as the American Association of Equine Practitioners to support the new Horseracing Integrity & Safety Act, on measures including anti-doping practices and regulation of therapeutic medicine for horses.

The Analyst’s Viewpoint
“Infectious diseases such as equine trypanosomosis did not gain enough attention from the scientific community, until recently. Consequently, players in the equine diagnostic services market are now expected to focus on bolstering the availability of prophylactic drugs to leverage rising demand for infectious disease treatment solutions. Diagnosticians are likely to collaborate with certified specialists to encourage horse owners to seek better testing services.”
