Anesthesia is a form of treatment in which the subject is administered with certain forms of medication that prevent it from experiencing any form of sensation of pain during the process of surgery. Anesthesia is applied in major species of animals such as cats, dogs, cattle, horsees, goats, pigs, and more. The procedure of anesthesia on animals is performed by a registered veterinary technician or a certified veterinarian. In cases of animals, anesthesia is used extensively, as animals, in most cases, are unable to cooperate with certain therapeutic or diagnostic procedures. Anesthetic machines are generally used for the purpose of anesthesia, owing to their safety and security.
Technological advancements in the field of veterinary anesthesia have boosted the adoption of equipment with better capabilities. The equipment offers advanced features and novel ventilation modes among others. Other factors such as increase in the prevalence of chronic disorders among companion animals, rise in pet ownership, and increase in the incidence of accidental injuries are key factors in contributing to the growth of the veterinary anesthesia equipment market. A rise in focus on animal care has resulted in an increase in pet adoption and rise in demand for products utilized for animal management. According to a survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) in 2017-2018, a total of 85 million families, or 65% of households in U.S., owned one pet or more. Since the National Pet Owners Survey was first conducted in 1988, the number of pet owners rose by a staggering 56%. Similarly, increase in expenditure on pet insurance has presented a lucrative environment for the growth of the veterinary anesthesia equipment market. According to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA), the pet insurance sector in North America expanded rapidly, with the number of combined gross written premiums approaching US$ 1.2 Bn in 2017. However, high cost of veterinary products is likely to be a major restraint of the global veterinary anesthesia equipment market in the next few years.
