Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Jane Westgarth, a leading analyst in the Petcare sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
People indulge their pets, including them in celebrations, buying them gifts, stylish accessories and toys. Humanisation of pets is also extending to include fitness monitors that make sure the pet is getting the exercise it needs as well as performance accessories, such as cooling jackets, for active dogs. Plus, in the home, demand for stylish pet beds and houses is growing, as people want their pet accessories to fit with their décor. But today’s time-pressed consumers also want convenience and this is driving demand for automated accessories that can feed or entertain a pet left alone
