Research and Markets: Global Wearable Technology for Animals Markets Report 2015-2025

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fs86th/wearable) has announced the addition of the "Wearable Technology for Animals 2015-2025" report to their offering.

Wearable technology for humans is a hot topic as evidenced by the large sales of our February report on this topic and the dramatic Google (News - Alert) Trends under Wearable. People are therefore asking whether wearable technology for animals will also thrive in future and the 300 suppliers and many start-ups now appearing with wearable technology for animals to sell want to understand the big picture and the competition and evolving market. The big actual and potential users from farms to horse studs may also need input.

This report concerns the needs, technology and markets for wearable electronics for animals, from pets to livestock and wild animals. We include the back-up equipment and systems and devices that are ingested to rest in a stomach of an animal. We also include devices implanted under the skin. There are currently about 300 manufacturers of such things in the world, the highest percentage in China, making very basic product at lowest price, followed by the USA then other countries we identify, the latter including the primary innovators. Over the coming deade, manufacturers will rise to 500 as the value market increases more than 2.5 times.


Most of these devices and their systems are used in the USA and Europe followed by Australia where RFID tagging of cattle is mandatory. RFID ear tags for cows then non-RFID collars on dogs for many purposes are currently the most popular forms of wearable electronics on animals across the world. In 2025, livestock tagging will still be most popular but it will much more often involve diagnostics. Indeed, medical diagnostic tagging of livestock, pets and endangered species will become commonplace. Medical treatment using electronics and electrics will also be steadily adopted following today's practice on humans with heating, cooling, iontophoretic drug delivery and so on, eventually even in response to the fitted diagnostics. The animals most likely to employ wearable electronics in volume in the next decade are those controlled by humans notably certain livestock, work animals and pets that we identify but conservation of wild species will also increase in number and sophistication.
