About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

South African pet care sees slowdown in volume sales

High unemployment, reduced purchasing power of the rand and skyrocketing food and fuel prices all resulted in reducing consumer spending. This puts strong pressure on consumers’ incomes driving them to hunt bargains, while still seeking quality and the most affordable products. In line with this trend, economy and mid-priced products remain popular among South African pet owners.

Depressed economy sees consumers shift to more affordable brands

Not only is South Africa under extreme economic pressure, with the rand falling to an all-time low against major currencies, but the country experienced the worst drought in 23 years. This resulted in massive cost pressures, with rising prices seeing consumers seek more affordable brands and pack sizes. Not only do manufacturers of premium brands such as Hill’s, Eukanuba, Iams and Royal Canin feel the impact of the weakening exchange rate, but mid-priced brands such as Whiskas and Friskies wet cat food pouches (which are also imported) do too.

Product diversity allows room for both international and local players in pet care

Due to consumer demand for products in a variety of price points as well as product offerings, there is room for both international and local companies to play in South Africa. Local players Foodcorp and Martin & Martin’s brands offer good quality as well as affordability. While Foodcorp is only present within dog and cat food, Martin & Martin is present across all categories including other pet food and pet products. Global players Mars and Nestlé obtain their strong position through their mid-priced dog and cat food brands.

Supermarkets remains the leading distribution channel of pet care products

Supermarkets outlets stock a wide array of economy and mid-priced dog and cat food brands, and a smaller array of other pet food and pet products. Dog and cat food are the biggest categories within pet care, and this enables supermarkets to continue to dominate in terms of distribution. Pet shops are the leading stockists of other pet food. Pet shops and vet shops stock premium brands of dog and cat food, as well as more premium imported brands within other pet food. This channel is growing, however the convenience of being able to buy pet food and pet care products at the same time as the grocery shopping means that supermarkets will continue to dominate distribution over the forecast period.

Manufacturers will focus on affordability when reviewing pack sizes and formats over the forecast period

Consumers will continue to seek the best value for money over the forecast period. Depending on product type, this may see consumers trading up to larger pack sizes in order to enjoy bulk savings. This is particularly true of dry dog food and is mostly seen in households with more than one dog. These bigger pack sizes are found in pet shops rather than supermarkets. Households with one pet may choose smaller pack sizes for convenient storage as well as smaller cash outlay at a time. By offering their brands in a variety of pack sizes, manufacturers hope to retain their value share and prevent consumers potentially shifting to cheaper, more affordable brands.
