The Global Handheld Veterinary Refractometers Market size is expected to reach USD 3.00 billion by 2028 and will grow at a CAGR of 6.7%. Growing awareness about animal health and rising demand for pet care products are the major drivers of this market. Additionally, advancements in technology such as optical and digital refractometers have led to significant growth in the industry over recent years.
Handheld Veterinary Refractometers are typically used for measuring the concentration of sugar in the blood. It is a type of medical equipment that can be easily carried by veterinarians and their assistants. Handheld veterinary refractometer tests obtained from using these devices do not require any laboratory processing, making it an inexpensive way to measure animal's glucose levels. It can measure up to four different parameters: blood glucose levels (diabetes), electrolyte imbalances (hyponatremia and hypernatremia) as well as kidney function.
A handheld vet-refractometer usually comprises three main parts: a light source, an optical system (lens), and a photo sensor or detector which directly measures the intensity of light through calibration with reference standards. The lens concentrates sunlight into a pinpoint size beam onto a sample solution; when some part of this concentrated beam penetrates the glass wall on one side, we see either a decrease in brightness or is transmitted through the sample, it will cause a change in the amount of light that is detected by the photosensor.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Optical Refractometers and Digital Refractometers. The Optical Refractometer segment is expected to dominate the global handheld veterinary refractometers market during the forecast period, owing to the high accuracy level for measuring serum glucose levels in diabetes patients.
An optical refractometer is an instrument that measures the amount of a chemical substance in a solution. The endpoint for titration with an acid-base indicator, such as phenolphthalein or methyl orange, can be detected by observing the color change on a white background and reading the corresponding endpoint on the scale. It is not necessary to know any other information about what has been measured (such as concentration) because it will always provide readings in degrees Brix which correspond to specific concentrations. Optical Refractometers operate using light waves rather than electricity so they are typically battery-powered. They have scales calibrated for different types of sugar solutions.
Digital refractometers are the newer type of handheld device that came out in recent years. They have a glass prism inside with an LED light source on one end and a photodetector on the other. As fruit juice or liquid is put into the device, it moves down a tube and passes between these two parts of the digital refractometer. The intensity of incident light changes depending on whether sugar content is high or low (refractive index).
The meter has been designed to be used by animal owners as well as veterinarians for monitoring health issues such as diabetes mellitus in cats and dogs, hypothyroidism, ketosis, hyperglycemia erythropoietic protoporphyria, etc.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Veterinary Hospitals, Veterinary Clinics and Others (Veterinary Research Centers). The Others category includes laboratories at educational institutions that require instruments not available on site but do not have funds the resources to purchase their own. Known for their accuracy and precision, veterinary refractometers have been commonly used in the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus. They are also utilized as a method of measuring ocular pressure which is an important sign of glaucoma. The increasing incidence rates of these diseases coupled with rising awareness about them will continue to fuel the market growth during the forecast period.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is growing due to the high demand in this region. In terms of product, digital refractometers are expected to be dominant as they have been able to provide accurate and quick results for critical diagnostic errors which is a major concern for veterinary hospitals. The market has also observed greater adoption from small clinics that want better quality devices without additional expenditure on maintenance costs.
In Europe, the Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa regions optical equipment dominates the market with the majority being used in laboratories or universities for scientific research purposes rather than at vet clinics where most people prefer digital refractometers because it provides more accuracy and faster data retrieval rates while getting an analysis done quickly.
