EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Volume sales decline as the pet population diminishes

The decline in the pet population in 2014 – especially of dogs, birds and fish – had a direct impact on volume sales of pet food, which declined slightly, and this is expected to continue in 2015. However, movement in the population was not the only factor determining the negative performance. In fact, the increasing popularity of smaller packaging in dry dog and cat food also led to the volume sales decline. This trend, however, was accompanied by strong premiumisation; for this reason, whilst volume sales fell, value sales recorded a positive performance.

Premiumisation and humanisation drive value growth

Despite the decline in both the pet population and in volume sales of pet food, the market managed to grow strongly in value terms in 2014, and this is expected to continue in 2015. This is especially due to the increasing relevance of premiumisation and humanisation. As pet owners increasingly treat their pets like members of their family, indulgence and quality-consciousness have become extremely relevant. In this context, products such as grooming and beauty products in pet products and treats and premium dry food in dog and cat food have been very successful and brought significant added-value, helping the market to see strong growth.

Multinational players remain dominant

Mars Belgium and Nestlé Purina PetCare maintained their leading positions in pet care in 2014. They held strong positions in dog and cat food thanks to a strong presence in retail channels and highly recognised brands such as Whiskas, Frolic and Cesar from Mars Belgium and Purina Gourmet, Purina ONE, Purina Friskies and Purina Felix from Nestlé Purina PetCare. Private label, by contrast, lost value share, expect for discounters, which broadened their offering in dog and cat food and benefited from their aggressive pricing policy. The remainder of the market was fragmented, with value sales divided amongst premium manufacturers such as Royal Canin Benelux, Karlie Flamingo, Iams Petfood International, Hill’s Pet Products Benelux, Beaphar Belgium and Laroy Duvo.

A strong distribution divide

The consumer polarisation between convenience and quality has resulted in a strong distribution divide. On the one hand, sales through grocery retailers such as discounters have performed well thanks to aggressive pricing policies, although discounters saw a decline in share in 2014, and is expected to be static in 2015. On the other hand, pet shops and pet superstores banked on the premiumisation trend and have managed to grow very strongly.

Premiumisation to drive value growth in the forecast period

In an increasingly mature market, with the pet population declining, the key elements for manufacturers to boost value sales will be added-value and premiumisation. The development of organic products and functional ingredients within dog and cat food will drive growth in an otherwise static pet food category. In pet products, the already strong demand for other pet products, especially beauty and grooming products, will experience a further boost, as players such as Beaphar Belgium will develop new premium products. As a result, pet products is set to grow strongly over the forecast period 2015-2020.
