Pet Wearable Market Size Worth Over $2Bn by 2023 - Global Market Insights


Point Roberts, WA - November 22, 2016 ( Newswire), a global news source covering technology issues a sector snapshot for the GPS pet tracking market and some of the publicly traded companies participating in the growing market opportunity. Flex (NASDAQ: FLEX), Garmin (NasdaqGS:GRMN),, Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: GOPH), Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) and Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NasdaqGS:SWKS) all have products developed or in development for the GPS tracking sector of the pet wearable market.

According to Global Market Insights, the pet wearable market size will be worth over $2bn by 2023.

"The rising need for remote monitoring and tracking pets is anticipated to drive the industry over the next few years. The advent of various smart devices such as tablets and smartphones that help in instant tracking of pets is likely to propel the industry over the next few years. Increasing significance of GPS and RFID based devices is predicted to positively impact the pet wearable market size."

The report also notes, "The U.S. pet wearable market size is predicted to continue its dominance due to surging adoption of these devices. Increasing spending on pet food, veterinary care and on other products and services is expected to drive the regional industry demand."

Another research firm, Grand View Research, sees similar growth opportunity. They project the market reaching USD $2.36 billion by 2022. "Growing pet ownership coupled with increasing per capita expenditure on pets is expected to drive product demand over the forecast period. Over the next seven years, linkage of pet wearable with IoT & other mobile devices along with increasing dominance of certain vendors would challenge industry penetration of new entrants."

In October, Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: GOPH) announced they had started building its initial 50 Guardian Sphere Devices, designed for tracking pets as well as other applications. The Sphere is an innovative tracking device that can easily be attached to a pet's collar and then transmit real-time location information to the smartphone(s) or website account of the registered owner of the device. The Sphere has a replaceable battery and operates on the exclusive Guardian private network, which provides owners with the unique ability to obtain real-time tracking information without the need for GPS, Wi-Fi or cellular service. The Sphere includes state of the art radio technology, a GPS system and micro controller systems, with a potential "back-up" Bluetooth unit. The Sphere sends signals in specific intervals to report on its location. The Sphere's system analyzes the information using its proprietary, advanced mathematical modeling software that precisely calculates the Sphere's location. The Sphere's mobile application then presents the exact location of the Sphere on the map. An additional unique system feature is the Sphere's Emergency Alert system. Users of the Sphere have the ability to transmit emergency alerts directly from their mobile apps, which transmit their Sphere locations. All registered users located in such a Sphere's proximity will be notified about the Emergency and may notify the user about the Sphere's recovery (which we fondly refer to as a "private emergency alert").

"The actual creation of our initial 50 Spheres along with their suggested final design is extremely exciting. These 50 Spheres will be tested as a complete system in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. We believe tests will be initiated by mid-November. Our goal in developing the Sphere is to provide pet owners with peace of mind through the use of an invaluable recovery tool which could enable them to track their pets in real-time should they ever become separated," stated Company CTO, Dr. Danny Rittman.

VerveRetrieve is IP67 waterproof and offers lifetime GPS tracking, virtual fence and wander alert via the Hubble application for iOS and Android. The Motorola SCOUT5000 wearable camera with GPS lets you know where your dog is at all times. The wide angle camera allows you to stream live video of what your dog is seeing on your compatible device; while GPS real-time tracking lets you know the exact whereabouts of your pet so you can bring them home if they wander off.
