About this Report

The global economy rebounded faster than expected in 2010, but it is expected to slow down again in 2011. However, it remains unlikely that the global pet care market will be adversely impacted as recent experience has shown that it is relatively resilient to recession. That said, recent developments in sovereign debt levels and manufacturer and retailer consolidation could all impact forecast retail sales compared to Euromonitor International’s predictions made in June 2010.
