Market Dynamics:

Opportunity: Growing popularity of poultry robots and BSC smart cameras

A breakthrough in the precision livestock farming market is the emergence of poultry robots, which are used for several purposes such as monitoring, manure removal, egg collection, etc. Poultry robots have successfully received the attention of poultry farm owners and commercial poultry farms to facilitate poultry production with more precision. These robots can monitor flocks, detect dead birds, stress, and any other anomaly among poultry birds, and provide real-time information to farm operators. This could lead to better monitoring of birds, thereby improving farm hygiene, and bird comfort.

Challenge: Emergence & re-emergence of diseases and environmental concerns

Infectious diseases are quite common in the livestock farming industry. The African Swine Fever (ASF) outbreak resulted in significant monetary losses in South Africa and hit its exports by 20%. Factors affecting livestock's health include the livestock house structure, ventilation, temperature management, feed, water supply, and other hygienic conditions. The resistance of poultry birds toward antibiotics is affecting the overall industry, and hence, the use of vaccines to prevent the spread of diseases can impact poultry farming. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, the demand for meat is expected to rise by 73% between 2010 and 2030; the demand for milk is expected to rise by 58% during the same period. Due to the increasing demand for livestock products, more pressure on the environment is expected to be visible by 2030.
