Taking a cross-sector view of this dynamic and challenging landscape, U.S. Pet Market Outlook delivers actionable predictions and recommendations designed to guide pet marketers, retailers, service providers, and investors across the full scope of this market.

Scope

Combining Packaged Facts’ extensive monitoring of the pet market with three proprietary pet owner surveys conducted in 2018, U.S. Pet Market Outlook is the go-to source for a complete understanding of the U.S. pet industry. The report evaluates current trends and future directions for marketing and retailing, along with consumer patterns across the full spectrum of the market, including veterinary services, pet food, nonfood pet supplies, and non-medical pet services (grooming, boarding, training, etc.).

U.S. Pet Market Outlook forecasts market size and growth for each category (2018-2022); examines new product activity; surveys retail channel trends including cross-channel shopping vs. shopper loyalty; and analyzes trends and shifts in the needs of today’s pet parents. The report tabulates pet product sales channel by channel and projects channel shares through 2022. Supplementing Packaged Facts’ exclusive Pet Owner Survey is an extensive analysis of Simmons’ National Consumer Study, which is based on approximately 25,000 adult respondents surveyed annually. The report contains dozens of numerical tables and charts, as well as numerous photographs of new products, advertising, screen shots, and other images across key channels.

Report Methodology

The information contained in U.S. Pet Market Outlook was obtained from primary and secondary research. Primary research includes national online consumer polls of U.S. adult pet owners (age 18+) conducted on an ongoing basis by Packaged Facts, to measure purchasing patterns and attitudes with regard to pet products and services. Primary research also includes interviews with pet market experts; participation in and attendance at pet industry events; and extensive Internet canvassing. Our estimates of market size and company performance are based on reported revenues of pet product manufacturers, retailers, and pet services providers.
