Although the 2008-2009 recession took a notable toll, natural and organic pet products continue as a top-growth market segment on their way to becoming the standard for premium pet products in the pet specialty channel and other upscale venues. Doing their part, all of the major mass-market and cross-channel marketers are tapping into the trend as well, keeping pressure on smaller marketers to scale up their product offerings even further. Most recently, in mid 2010 Procter & Gamble rocked the pet food industry by acquiring Natura Pet Products, whose natural and organic pet food brands include Innova, Evo, California Natural and Karma—a move that suggests that the natural pet food party is just getting started on the mass-market side.

Also underpinning steady market advancement is consumer demand for products perceived to be safer, an appeal that got a big boost from the Spring 2007 recalls and one that continues to define the way marketers formulate and position products. According to pet owner surveys conducted by Packaged Facts, 40% of dog owners and 38% of cat owners purchase natural/organic pet products; nearly half of pet owners would buy more natural/organic pet products if they were more affordable; and almost two-fifths would do so if they were more available. Featuring exclusive consumer data such as these, the report homes in on food and nonfood purchasing trends across multiple categories, as well as attitudes and demographic characteristics of natural and organic pet product purchasers.

Building on the analysis presented in the previous two editions of this report, Natural, Organic and Eco-Friendly Pet Products in the U.S., 3rd Edition divides the market into two classifications—pet food and pet care—with the latter defined as encompassing all nonfood pet supplies (cat litter, grooming products, flea/tick care products, supplements, clean-up products, etc.). For each classification, coverage includes historical and projected retail sales estimates from 2005 through 2014, competitive strategies of key players, and trends in new product development such as human-grade pet food, raw/frozen pet food, fresh (refrigerated) pet food, eco-friendly nonfood pet products, corporate sustainability initiatives, and cause marketing. Additional data sources include SymphonyIRI marketer/brand sales data for mass-market channels, SPINSscan data for the natural supermarket channel, Datamonitor Product Launch Analytics data tracking new product introductions, and Experian Simmons data profiling trends in pet ownership and product purchasing.
