LONDON, Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Summary
Pet Care is a resilient market that was relatively unaffected by the economic downturn, so despite the expected decline in consumer confidence following the EU referendum, the market will continue to grow over the next five years, albeit at a slightly slower rate in 2017 and 2018. There is polarisation in the market with the health and wellness trend driving consumers to purchase premium pet care items, while the expansion of discounters and single-priced players has supported volume growth of low value goods.
- The pet accessories market is set to be worth £643m in 2016, up 13.0% between 2011 and 2016, and forecast to grow 14.8% over the next five years, making it the fastest growing category in the pet care sector.
- Collectively, the big four grocers still dominate the Pet Care market, however their share of the market is declining, as discounters and value focused general merchandisers continue to expand rapidly and steal shopper footfall and sales.
- Online channel gains traction. Purchases made online will account for 10.9% of the total Pet Care market in 2016 with the prevalence of online pureplays and extended ranges from multichannel retailers allowing consumers to purchase specialist products and bulk-buy pet food at a discounted price. Automated delivery schemes are also driving channel growth.
- Trends such as pet humanisation have led to the development of food products such as probiotics and supplements, while technology targeted at pets has become more prevalent. Innovations in pet food are yet to fully see their potential realized, so we expect this to support growth over the next five years.
- The rise in house prices, increased urbanisation and population growth has led to more people renting and living in smaller homes. As a result, consumers are less inclined to own pets due to restrictions from their landlords as well as a lack of physical space - having a long term impact on potential growth in the Pet Care market.
