Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the growth of the pet identification microchip market

Government-imposed limitations to control the spread of novel coronavirus infection during the early period of the COVID-19 outbreak in most countries affected the daily operations of most businesses. Several economies experienced a sharp decline in their GDP in 2020 due to the sudden shutdown of most economic activities in the countries.

According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the pandemic negatively affected the US, UK, India, Italy, France, China, Australia, Japan, and several other major countries. Furthermore, the waves of the outbreak were approaching in different time frames in each country in different regions.

Therefore, multinational companies operating in different regions had to reconfigure their operations to accommodate all their employees, leading to the widespread adoption of work from home (WFH). This strategy strongly promoted the adoption of companion animals in several countries, promoting pet identification microchips. market growth.

This is because most of these pets are microchipped before being adopted. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSCPA) Victoria, they received 61,000 pet adoption applications as of April 2020. Thus, the market for pet identification microchips in countries like the UK, Australia and New Zealand, where dog microchipping is mandatory, is positively impacted. However, the impact of the pandemic was very different in countries like India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, as the overall penetration rate of pet identification microchips is quite low in these countries. Overall, the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the Asia Pacific pet identification microchip market.

China accounts for the largest share of the pet identification microchip market in Asia Pacific, followed by Japan and Australia. The pet identification microchip market in Australia is growing rapidly.

In the country, microchipping for cats and dogs is required in ACT (Australian Capital Territory), NSW (New South Wales), QLD (Queensland), VIC (Victoria) and WA (Western Australia). Dog microchipping is required in TAS (Tasmania) only.

In accordance with Section 14 of the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008, all cats and dogs must be microchipped before 12 weeks of age. In addition, in accordance with Section 84 of the Domestic Animals Act 2000 and Regulation 7 of the Domestic Animals Regulations 2001, microchipping of cats and dogs prior to sale/transfer and prior to 12 weeks of age is mandatory.

Such factors promote the revenue generation of the Pet Identification Microchips market players operating in the country. OzMircochips is one of the major players in the pet identification microchip market providing microchips in Australia.

Pet identification microchip market revenue was primarily generated through dog microchips. However, that scenario is changing rapidly.

The cat segment is anticipated to record the highest growth rate due to increasing awareness of the advantages of microchips and regulations by government authorities. According to the European Federation of the Pet Food Industry (FEDIAF), Europe had more than 113 million pet cats in 2021 and 103.8 million pet cats in 2018. Europe has the highest rate of cat ownership compared to all the other regions. Therefore, regulatory bodies have begun to mandate the use of microchips in cats to track owners and reduce stray dogs. The UK government mandated microchipping of cats in 2021, with owners required to comply with the same by the end of 2022. Additionally, Turkey passed a new animal rights law in 2021, which mandated microchipping of cats. cats by the end of 2022. The law was passed to discourage citizens from abandoning their pets on the streets when moving to a new city. Such mandates are expected to fuel the growth of the pet identification microchip market in the coming years.

Pethealth, Inc; Merck & Co., Inc.; Elanco Animal Health, Inc; Avid Identification Systems, Inc; Datamars SA; Trovan Ltd; Virbac SA; Animalcare Group Plc; Microchip4solutions Inc; and PeddyMark Ltd are some of the major players in the pet identification microchip market.
