About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Value sales of pet care see a positive performance

Irish pet care continued to grow in 2015 and this is set to be the case for 2016 too. Growth in pet food is expected to drive sales as consumer confidence and spending continues to increase as the Irish economy also grows. There is a large number of consumers who invest in premium pet food products, particularly dog owners who want the best for their pet. However, value remains important, with economy also performing strongly at the expense of mid-priced products.

Pet products does not benefit from the revival

Pet products continues to struggle. While general spending is up, many consumers still exercise caution about spending on discretionary products such as pet supplements and pet accessories. While consumers are happy to invest in pet food, there is less justification for spending on non-essentials items such as other pet products. Accessories in particular also faces a challenge as many of these products are low frequency purchases that may only be bought a couple of times in the lifetime of a pet. With the growing number of added-value pet food products available there is less demand for pet dietary supplements products.

Private label sales still strong but share falls marginally

There were few changes to the competitive environment over the past year. Mars Foods Ireland Ltd remained the leading player within pet care in 2015. Nestlé Purina PetCare Ireland Ltd was the second biggest player and growing. Private label accounts for a significant proportion of sales within pet care. However, there was a marginal decline in its sales share in 2015 predominately due to consumers investing more in premium products particularly within dog and cat food.

Retail supermarkets stock premium product range

Consumers continue to purchase pet care products, particularly pet food, in supermarkets due to their added convenience for everyday shopping. A small number of premium pet food products is also available within supermarkets such as Supervalu and Tesco. Discounters and variety stores also have a growing presence; value remains essential for both to grow further. Internet retailing also grew as broadband penetration levels continue to improve and more retailers offer an online presence.

Marginal growth predicted with humanisation remaining a key trend

Pet care sales are expected to see marginal growth over the forecast period, albeit stronger compared to the review period. Those who own a pet are expected to spend more on them with growing demand for premium products set to continue. There is growing confidence among Irish consumers and as this continues, they are likely to invest more in their pets. Humanisation and health and wellness will be important trends going forward. Any lapses in economic growth could have a negative impact on pet care sales as extra disposable income is vital for consumers to spend on their pets.
