Swedish market research agency Berg Insight published their regular report about using GPS and IoT devices in Europe and North America. They predict that more than 5 million GPS units will be used for pet and family control in next 5 years.
According to the source, the number of people monitored using mobile telecare systems in Europe and North America was about 450,000 at the end of 2015. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40 percent, this number is expected to reach almost 3.4 million by 2021.
The same trend is related to the growing popularity for pet tracking. Now 300.000 GPS trackers are used for control of per location and behavior, but the number can reach 2.8 million during next 5 years. It is a good trend for the market, however, it is probably not enough for estimated 150 million dogs and 160 million cats living in Europe and North America. Less than 3 percents of pets are really protected by GPS services.
Unfortunately, there is no any kind of statistics for CIS, LATAM or other regions of the world.
