The adoption of technology in pets is expected to grow at a lucrative pace during the forecast period as owners seek to care for their pet’s health in unique ways.

Market Dynamics:

Increasing adoption of pets by communities across the globe and growing investments by pet owners in smart/IOT-based products for effective maintenance of pets are the major factors driving the global pet tech market. Millennial pet owners are more interested in devices such as wearables, interactive devices, gaming consoles and others for pets. According to the study published by Office for National Statistics, the annual spending by pet owners on pets increased from USD 5.98 billion in 2017 to 6.588 billion in 2018.  These products allow pet owners to maintain, track the pets' physiological & physical health, and maintain relationships with their pets. The lack of presence of individuals during working hours in homes led pet owners to adopt smart technologies that can interact with the pet and feed it in constant intervals. The smart monitors provided by companies such as Furbo and Petsafe allow pet owners to monitor their pets and provide food and entertainment during pet owners' absence in residence.

However, high cost and lack of awareness among the communities in low-income countries hinder the growth of the global pet tech market.

Market Segmentation

The global pet tech market is segmented based on product type, tracking equipment, monitoring equipment, entertainment equipment, feeding equipment, etc.

Tracking equipment evolved as the largest segment in the global pet tech market owing to growing investment by the pet owners in the active tracking of health and behavioral aspects of their pets. The tracking equipment monitors the pet’s whereabouts and monitors activity levels, respiration, heart rate and fitness indicators. The weakly health reports provided by the respective tracking equipment through their apps will allow pet owners to act according to preventive and proactive health measures.   The collar attachments and collar sensors monitor the health functions, and the small cameras in these systems will provide a dog’s eye view of the house when owners are away.

Geographical Presentation

By region, the global pet tech market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa.

The United States is dominating the global pet tech market owing to the growing adoption of advanced wearables and monitoring devices by pet owners to provide proactive and preventive health measures. According to American Pet Products Association, the annual spending on pets accounted for USD 69 billion out of 6.7% for pet tech products. The high pet population and increasing disposable income by the millennials over pets contribute to the growth of the United States pet tech market. According to American Pet Products Association, the total pet population in the United States was 85.2 million in 2017-2018. Furthermore, high consumer interest in investing in highly interactive and convenient equipment for pets across the country is expected to boost the pet tech market in the United States during the forecast period.

Competitive Analysis

However, in individual product segmentation, the market is consolidated, with very few players holding a significant share.
