Packaged Facts Expert to Present on Pet Market Trends and the Impact of E-commerce at Global Pet Expo 2018

Press Release
Mar 15, 2018
Rockville (MD), March 15, 2018 — More than $6 billion worth of pet products were sold online in 2017, and that figure is expected to easily double by 2022, according to market research firm Packaged Facts in the recently published report U.S. Pet Market Outlook, 2018-2019. The growing influence of e-commerce in general and of e-tailer Amazon specifically has caused pet industry innovation to reach an all-time high and the market is being reshaped to its core.

“E-commerce is challenging pet industry norms. This has created both dynamism and opportunity, but also has resulted in such dizzying market reconfiguring that it’s hard to keep up let alone lead the pack,” says David Sprinkle, research director for Packaged Facts and a renowned guest lecturer on consumer packaged goods.

Mr. Sprinkle will be a featured speaker at this year’s first pet products trade show, Global Pet Expo 2018, on March 21 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. His presentation, “Channel Trends and the Online Onslaught”, features insights and opportunities based on research from Packaged Facts’ U.S. Pet Market Outlook, 2018-2019.

The data-rich discussion will cover trends in pet owner shopping and spending across brick-and-mortar channels and through websites/mobile apps, with a focus on dog and cat products. In addition, the presentation will compare online/mobile shopper patterns to those for pet specialty and mass-market retailers, and also address the changing role of the veterinarian channel in pet product shopping and promotion.
