Key Market Trends

The Pet Humanization Trend is Driving the Market

The pet humanization trend has a positive influence on the market growth, with rising consumer interest in treating pets as part of their family. Urbanization is forcing people into smaller spaces where larger pets are not economical as their maintenance costs are high compared to smaller pets. Small pets are much more likely to be indulged and humanized than larger pets.

Premium pet care products are natural, of higher quality, and safer than regular pet care products. With the increasing demand for premium pet grooming products globally, several companies are planning to come up with high-quality pet care products to occupy major market shares in this segment. For instance, in November 2020, BASF Care Creations, North America launched three formulations specifically for dog grooming: Creamy Co-Wash for Dogs, Fresh Obsessed Dry Shampoo Mist and Micellar Dog Shampoo.

The pet humanization trend is supporting the market growth with a number of companies investing in R&D to create new and interesting products.

North America is Leading the Pet Care Market

The pet care market in North America is well matured in terms of consumers and available products in the market. Premiumization is playing a key role in driving the sales of pet care products in North America.

There is a growing demand for natural pet food, which is gaining traction among US consumers, owing to obesity risks in pets such as dogs and cats. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 55% of dogs and cats in the United States are obese.

This presents a greater opportunity for manufacturers to add quality ingredients and diets and launch added value products to cater to the growing consumer interest toward premium products. With more product launches with value-added quality ingredients, the demand for pet care products is expected to grow further during the forecast period.
