About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Increased focus on premium pet food and pet nutrition

Premium pet food and health products have been among the fastest-growing categories for the past few years. The trend is linked to the growing focus on consumer education from pet care manufacturers, shops and veterinary clinics. Pet pampering is slowly becoming the norm and pet owners’ spending has moved far beyond simple food expenses to include innovative and specialised premium products.

Pet food trends become similar to human food trends

Health and wellness solutions are becoming the focus of pet manufacturers. Companies are responding to the expectations of pet owners for more wholesome food for their pet friends, following the trends in human diets - more natural organic food, better quality and healthier products. Pet owners believe the food they give their pets should be as good as what they consume themselves. This trend presents the manufacturers with significant opportunities for product innovation.

Private label - growing threat for manufacturers of economy brands

When it comes to shopping on a budget, there is no brand loyalty, with most shoppers searching for the best price on the shelf. Retailers stock private label pet food products as they are often more profitable for them than branded products and have a better price. Retailers are able to position their private label products better than the other products, so consumers have the chance to compare prices and choose what is best for their budget. However, private label is not yet present among the mid-priced and premium segments, which could be the next step in the forecast period.

Discounters are growing faster than any other channel

Independent small grocers are struggling and losing sales, and this trend is projected to continue in the near future. As consumers are price oriented, discounters recorded the highest sales increase amongst other channels in 2016. Nevertheless, pet shops are still the biggest channel and recorded growth despite being mainly frequented by higher-income consumers buying mostly premium and super-premium pet food.

Focus on pet food labels

In the forecast period, it is expected that pet food manufacturers will focus on pet food labels to claim their products’ functional ingredients. Currently this trend is notable mainly in the premium segment – explanations related to specific benefits or pet problems. Health claims mirror those seen in the human food market. During the forecast period, other segments will also focus on labelling as a channel of communication with pet owners.
