North American Pet Wearable Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 5 billion by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
North America is witnessing high pet ownership with increasing demand for pet wearables that help owners understand their pets' behavior and health issues. According to the Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI) 2020 Pet Population Survey, 58% of households in Canada own at least one dog or cat. From 2018 to 2020, the dog population increased from 7.6 million to 7.7 million while the cat population remained stable. The increasing availability of advanced pet wearables in countries including the U.S. and Canada will help the market gain traction. Due to the presence of leading manufacturers, owners become aware of innovative technologies that offer effective training to their pets.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic had a detrimental impact on the North America pet wearable market in the first half of 2020 owing to strict lockdown restrictions imposed by the government for public safety. Manufacturing operations were discontinued in various countries that affected production schedules and global shipments. Due to the relaxation on imposed lockdowns and resumption of industrial activities, the pet wearable industry will expand in 2021. The market will grow due to increasing R&D activities by manufacturers to offer innovative pet wearables for various applications.
Smart cameras are gaining popularity in North America as it incorporates various advanced features through sound detection to alert owners. In the absence of owners, a dedicated pet camera monitors the pet's health, regulates their behavior, and interacts with them. Such cameras support wide-angle viewing, night vision, two-way audio, and pet treat dispensers that can be controlled through a mobile app. Some pet-specific cameras feature interactive toys so that the owners can play with the pets through their smartphones. Smart cameras offer a tele-vet feature that determines if an in-person visit is necessary. If any concerning activity is captured on the camera, owners can chat live with a licensed veterinarian and share photos & videos of the pet.
