Description

"Americans are looking at the products and services made for them and asking: “why don’t they have this for my pet?” From fresh food delivery to anti-anxiety offerings, products for pets are looking more like products for people every day. This is one of the major factors driving this market forward to an estimated $96.4 billion in 2019. The market is forecast for above average growth over the next five years, with all segments benefiting from a stable economy and positive attitudes toward pet ownership."
- Dana Macke, Associate Director - Lifestyles & Leisure
