The global transgenic animal market is anticipated to observe an impressive growth during the forecast period, 2023-2027. The major factors include increasing consumption of animal-derived protein and dairy products and rise in R&D activities. A transgenic animal is one who's genes are modified to improve both quality and quantity of food demand and also help to understand gene disease. The other factors supporting the market's growth are rise various diseases, advancement in techniques, and growing awareness. Additionally, rising healthcare expenditure and implementation of the animal welfare regulations are driving the growth of the market in upcoming years.

Increasing Consumption of Animal-Derived Protein and Dairy Products

As protein and calcium plays a vital role in nutrition, the consumption of meat and meat products such as dairy products, eggs, beef, and chicken are increasing, which surge the market growth in foreseen years. For instance, genetically modified poultry, such as broilers, have high number of proteins which are easily digestible. Additionally, rapid urbanization and increase in population across the globe are bolstering the market growth. Owing to the increase in animal derived protein supplements and food products, the need for transgenic animals is also rising. Therefore, all these factors are propelling the growth of the transgenic animal market, globally. In 2015, a study by Meat and Livestock in Australia revealed that genetically modified cows can produce more milk and are less susceptible to cattle diseases.

Wide Applications of Transgenic Animals

Transgenic animals have numerous applications in various fields such as agriculture, medical and industrial sectors. They are used to develop new and improved strains of livestock and as model organisms. Development of transgenic farm animals are allowing more flexibility in direct genetic manipulation of livestock. With ever-growing world population and changing climate conditions, such efficient means of increasing food production are needed. In addition, transgenic animals are specifically designed to study the genes in order to develop a cure for the diseases such as Alzheimer’s and cancer. For instance, in 2020, Merck Animal Health along with Automazioni VX, Inc. (US) signed an agreement aiming to Innoject Pro, a newly designed subcutaneous chick vaccination technology. The technology will be utilized by coupling with Merck Animal Health’s Innovax range of vaccines, which aids for protection against infectious diseases.

Increasing awareness and R&D Initiatives

Various R&D initiatives and awareness programs are initiated by the governments of the respective countries, which is bolstering the growth of the transgenic market. As per a publication by the British Nutrition Foundation 2018, genetically modified cows were anticipated to produce milk without allergy-producing protein, which will make the product apt for lactose-intolerant people. As per the National Institute of Health, in 2017, approximately 8% of the population in the U.K. was suffering from lactose intolerance. Thus, the modifications are likely to provide newer prospects for animal genetics in the upcoming years. Furthermore, the rising initiative to educate on transgenic animal is further anticipated to drive the growth of this market.
