Petcare - UK - July 2019
Covered in this report
This report focuses on pet accessories and healthcare for cats and dogs, small mammals, fish and birds. Pet accessories are products that are either worn by, played with, treated on or used on pets which are not physically consumed by the pet itself. Pet accessories also include animal health and hygiene products.
Mintel’s definition of petcare includes:
- items for home grooming
- collars, leashes and harnesses
- pet beds and bedding
- feeding equipment
- over-the-counter flea/tick treatments
- pet technology such as fitness monitors
The report excludes pet food and purchasing pets themselves. We also exclude services for pets, such as boarding, grooming, training and veterinary services. Pet insurance is also excluded from this report. Accessories and care for horses are not included. Prescription medicines are also excluded.
“Pets are ‘people’ too, in the eyes of most pet owners. And, just like treasured members of the family, pets are indulged with toys, stylish accessories and good quality petcare products. This ‘humanisation’ trend even stretches to pets being given their own Christmas and birthday gifts. People are also buying into technical products, such as fitness and activity monitors, again mirroring trends in the human marketplace. These trends have helped consumer spending on petcare grow by 15% over 2014-19 to reach £965 million and will continue to help fuel growth over the next five years. We expect the market for petcare to grow by 15% to reach £1,114 million during 2019-24.”
