Rise in demand for pet insurance is anticipated to present new opportunities in the racehorse health care products market during the forecast period.

Geographically, the global racehorse health care products market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America accounted for the largest share (16 racehorses per 100,000 population) of the global racehorse health care products market in 2017. The market in the region is anticipated to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period, owing to the largest number of racehorses in North America, thriving horse-race industry, rise in demand for racehorses, high diagnosis and treatment rate of these animals, and well-established animal health care infrastructure. The population of racehorses in Europe varies by region. The population of racehorses in countries in Western Europe such as the U.K., Germany, and France is 10 per 100,000 human population. On the other hand, the racehorse industry is not prominent in Eastern Europe. Europe held the second largest share of the global racehorse health care products market in 2017. The market in the region is anticipated to expand at a high growth rate during the forecast period, owing to demand for racehorses in Western Europe, increase in number of racehorse diseases such as gastric ulcers and equine influenza, and well-established animal health care infrastructure. Latin America accounted for the third largest share of the global market in 2017, owing to the racehorse breeding industry in Argentina, trend of import of Argentine racehorses to the U.S. and the Middle East racehorse industry, and high prevalence of gastric ulcers and tetanus in racehorses. Apart from Australia, horse race is not a popular sport in Asia Pacific. The population of racehorses in Australia is around 14 per 100,000 human population. The population of racehorses is around 3 per 100,000 in India and China. Therefore, Asia Pacific held the fourth largest market share in 2017, followed by Middle East & Africa, owing to weak racehorse industry and less number of racehorses in Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
