Livestock Monitoring Market was estimated at USD 1,450 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 3,415 million in 2029, expanding at a CAGR of 11.3% over the forecast period 2022-2029 attributed to rapid increase in cattle population and growing meat production worldwide.
Key Livestock Monitoring Market Drivers
Livestock monitoring market is majorly driven by growing consumption of meat around the world, rising focus of early-disease detection, incidences of zoonotic diseases, increasing livestock population and concerns related to food security. Meat has become one of the most widely consumed food items worldwide as it is rich in proteins, and provides essential nutrients such as iron, zinc and B vitamins. According to OECD-FAO Agriculture Outlook, the global consumption of meat proteins is estimated to rise by 14% by 2030 as compared to average base period of base period average of 2018-2020 attributed to increasing per capita incomes and population growth rates. As the consumption of meat product increases, farmers will require livestock monitoring solutions like GPS trackers, and remote monitoring systems to track health to track animal’s health, behaviour and location in real-time, which in turn will create lucrative growth opportunities for livestock monitoring market.
Livestock monitoring has become an essential part of agriculture, especially in livestock farming. Advancements in sensor technology, is one of the major factors, which is boosting the demand for different livestock monitoring system. Advancements in sensing technologies have enabled farmers to gain critical information about animal’s feeding behaviour, general hygiene and also identifying and tracking animals accurately. Accessibility to smart tags and sensors at reasonable prices, is accelerating the demand for advanced livestock health monitoring systems globally. However, through livestock farming, a significant amount of man-made greenhouse gasses are released in the air, thus contributing to global warming. Livestock farming further contributes to deforestation and losses in biodiversity, thus adding more pressure on natural resources, which is creating challenges for the global livestock market.
Based on Offering, Hardware segment is forecast to hold the largest market share.
Growing demand for cost-effective livestock monitoring system, advancements in the field of sensor technologies, rapid increase in average herd size and growing number of livestock farms, are some of the factors supplementing the segment’s growth.
