Wearable Tech for Animals Market to Reach $2.6 Billion

Wearable technology for humans is already somewhat in vogue. What's next? Wearable tech applications for animals -- from ultrasound-delivering treatment patches and electronic saddle optimization for horses to collars on many other animals that variously track, identify and diagnose.

The new market study by IDTechEx explored the needs, technologies and markets of wearable electronics for livestock, pets and wild animals.

Their study findings forecast that the global market, incorporating both RFID and non-RFID technologies, will reach $2.6 billion in 2025. The research analyzes in detail six application markets sectors.

IDTechEx research predicts that during the next decade expenditure on medical diagnosis devices will increase in value market share from 11 percent to 23 percent and medical treatment (such as heating, cooling, ultrasound and drug delivery) will increase from a mere 1 percent to 13 percent.


According to the IDTechEx assessment, we are in the decade of wearable tech for animals being used for an addressable market of 22 billion human-controlled animals, but the decade may end with a rapid rise in tracing and treating endangered species -- that's likely to be in the billions yearly.

Some RFID tagging will be subsumed by diagnostic devices that look the same, such as newly available stomach boluses, collars and implants.

The demand originates in two directions, from requiring tagging of many forms of livestock in certain jurisdictions for disease control and quality improvement to some seeking to ban sale of inhumane dog training collars that administer electric shocks.

As an example of typical use cases, cameras on pets are surprisingly popular and a dog's bark can now be interpreted and radioed to the owner when away.

Moreover, the number of protected fish tagged already runs into millions, tagging racing pigeons is a big business too and even bees are already being tagged nowadays.

The resulting comprehensive market study report has many other surprises, warnings, predictions and lessons from its deep analysis -- which includes a comparison of 141 manufacturers.

Artificial Intelligence for National Border Security

National border protection agencies are under pressure to provide the highest level of security in the face of growing threats, such as increasing illegal migration and international terrorism. Now, government agencies are embracing advanced border security technologies to aid in effectively and reliably securing national borders. These solutions look to detect and identify potential threats and prevent them from escalating to a point that may jeopardize security. Security Surveillance Market Development Traditional border security patrols and Closed-circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance systems aren't adequate protection, and agencies must increasingly deploy new solutions to stay ahead of criminals and other potential threats to ensure the safety of a country’s borders. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, the value of the border security technology market will exceed $70 billion globally in 2027 -- that's rising from $48 billion in 2022. Growing by 47 p

Precision Medicine Spend to Reach $132.3 Billion

Precision Medicine uses molecular info to extract the optimum medical method from diagnostic protocols, by merging the impact of environmental and genetic factors. Data access is essential, with genetic metabolic and clinical data used to build a fuller picture of a patient's biology. Moreover, the primary aim of precision medicine is to design and optimize a pathway for diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and prognosis, using large biological datasets. Personalized, evidence-based medicine uses stored health data, which includes patient diagnosis, laboratory work, insurance claims, and demographic information. The results enable healthcare providers to predict and prevent some illnesses. Precision Medicine Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, the total investment in precision medicine will reach $132.3 billion globally by 2027 -- that's increasing from only $35.7 billion in 2022. The significant market growth of 270 percent is
