The veterinary dental equipment market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period.

COVID-19 had a significant impact on the veterinary dental equipment market owing to the reduced veterinary consultation and minimal dental visits by the vet to the farms and shelters. For instance, as per a report published by American Veterinary Medical Association in September 2021, veterinarian practices experienced a difficult 18+ months as a result of COVID-19, and many veterinarians adjusted to the real changes it brought about. Veterinary clinics saw only urgent cases in the early months of the epidemic as they ran as necessary enterprises. This significantly impacted the veterinary dental equipment. Now that restrictions have been lifted, and there is an increase in dental diseases in pets and animals, the market is expected to grow.

As mentioned above, the rising prevalence of veterinary periodontal diseases (PD) is a major driver of the market. Periodontal disease usually begins around one tooth and progresses from there. In stage 1 of periodontal disease, dogs show symptoms of gingivitis. In stage 2, nearly 25 percent of the teeth separate from the gums, and in the later stages 3 and 4 the gum tissue recedes, and the roots of the teeth may be exposed. As per an article published in December 2022 in the MDPI journal, the significant prevalence of PD in dogs and its link to potential local and systemic implications highlight the importance of funding new dental procedures, preventative measures, and medical therapies to better manage this condition in pet animals.

Furthermore, the increase in dental disease studies in pet animals raises the demand and need for veterinary dental equipment. For instance, as per the article published in January 2021 in the Plos One journal, a study analyzed the association between a combination of nine bacteria and the progression between the PD groups. T. denticola showed a strong association with progression between PD2 and PD3 groups. P. intermedia also showed a reliable association with progression between PD2 and PD4.

Additionally, veterinary dental equipment or consumables product launches across the globe are highly supporting the growth of the market over the forecast period. For instance, in August 2022, Yumove, the joint supplement brand, launched Dental Care Sticks. As the dog chews, a soft center is released, which targets the bacteria which cause bad breath and plaque.

While the market is believed to perform well, the high cost of veterinary equipment is likely to restrain the market growth.

Veterinary Dental Equipment Market Trends

The Veterinary Dental X-ray Systems Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share Over the Forecast Period

Veterinary dental X-rays (radiographs) are images of animal teeth that a veterinary dentist uses to evaluate the oral health of the animal. These x-rays are used with low levels of radiation to capture images of the interior teeth and gums, which help the dentist identify problems and other aspects of animal oral healthcare. The veterinary dental X-rays segment is expected to witness growth in the market over the forecast period owing to the factors such as an increase in dental diseases in animals, a rise in research and development, and an increase in investment in the healthcare of animals.

For instance, as per the Pet Food Manufacturer's Association (PFMA), in 2021, 3.2 million households in the United Kingdom acquired a pet since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. And as per PFMA Pet Population 2022 data, the estimated number of pets in 2022 was likely to be 34.9 million, among which 13 million were dogs, and 12 million were cats. This rise in the adoption of pets is expected to increase healthcare expenditure and veterinary consultation, which utilizes veterinary dental rays, leading to market growth over the forecast period.

Moreover, an increase in veterinary dental X-ray product launches, strategic acquisitions, and collaboration is expected to contribute to the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in December 2022, Vets4Pets Bristol acquired a new dental X-ray machine named Gnasher. It uses digital imaging to accurately detect dental diseases, enabling the practice to enhance its dental service offering.

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market in the Forecast Period

North America is expected to hold a significant market share in the veterinary dental equipment market due to a rise in the prevalence of periodontal disease in pets, rising companion animal healthcare expenditure, and the high availability of veterinary dental services in this region. For instance, according to the 2021-2022 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), 70% of United States households owned a pet, which equates to 90.5 million homes. In addition, during 2019-20, around 69 million United States households owned a dog, and 45.3 million families owned a cat. As the number of pets increases, people are likely to be more focused on their health matters, including oral care. This can potentially increase the market growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, as per the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) 2022 report, the percentage of total insured pets in the United States increased from 23.2% in 2020 to 28.3% in 2021. Considering the increase in insured pets, pet owners are anticipated to focus on the comfort of pets by providing proper medications and dental disease diagnosis, thereby boosting the market growth. Moreover, in January 2022, the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) in partnership with Zoetis commissioned a survey of 18,145 dog and cat owners and 1,357 small animal veterinarians from nine countries, including Mexico. The survey was commissioned to gain a deeper understanding of how the human-animal bond was perceived and impacts behavior among pet owners and veterinarians worldwide. According to the survey, 85% of pet owners worldwide said they would spend money on their animal's health if it required extensive veterinarian care. Hence, due to the increase in concern shown by pet owners in the case of pet healthcare, they are likely to consider their oral health as well, which is expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period.

Additionally, product launches, collaborations, and strategic acquisitions by key players in the studied region are expected to advance market growth. For instance, in April 2021, Flight Dental Systems entered the veterinary market through a partnership with a veterinarian supply company, Eickemeyer Veterinary Technology for Life.
