EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Pet care registers solid current value sales growth in 2015

Pet care in South Korea continued to develop positively in 2015, though current value growth was down slightly on 2014. While dog food recorded a modest performance, cat food performed strongly thanks to growth in the cat population and increased demand for cat food and treats products among owners. This ensured that the overall value share of cat food within pet food continued to rise. Other pet food, mainly represented by small mammal/reptile food, also performed well. Moreover, pet care as a whole benefited from rising demand for non-food products such as cat litter and dietary supplements.

Owners increasingly use Internet of Things technologies to care for pets

South Koreans are increasingly using Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to care for their pets. Such technologies enable owners to remotely feed, watch over and communicate with their pets while they are away from home, eg at work, and are particularly attractive to single-person households. The drive to encourage pet owners to use IoT technologies for this purpose is being spearheaded by leading telecommunications companies such as LG UPlus and SK Telecom. The advent of such technologies has made pet ownership more viable for many consumers, and thus should continue to have a positive impact on pet care in South Korea over the forecast period.

Royal Canin maintains its lead as new domestic players enter pet care in 2015

Royal Canin Korea continued to lead pet care in South Korea in 2015, but faced increasing competition as domestic companies such as CJ Cheiljedang Corp focused on expanding their distribution networks and strengthening penetration of their brands in both dog food and cat food. The competitive environment was quite fragmented overall, with the combined market value share of the five highest-ranked international manufacturers remaining relatively low. Domestic manufacturers continued to gain prominence, including new players that entered pet care over 2014-2015, such as KT&G, Dongwon F&B and Sajo Industries. International brands, which have traditionally led pet care, face a growing challenge from both established and new domestic competitors. This is likely to fuel more intense price competition and higher investment in promotional activities over the forecast period, particularly in dog and cat food.

Pet superstores channel continues to gain ground in pet care distribution

Pet superstores recorded the largest market value share gain of any distribution channel within pet care in 2015. Its performance was bolstered by growing consumer appreciation for the convenience and wide assortments offered by pet superstores outlets, as well as by the expansion of larger chains such as Molly’s Pet Shop (owned by E-Mart Co Ltd) Pet Garden (Lotte Mart) and I Love Pet (Homeplus). Internet retailing also performed well, as many consumers continued to favour this channel for bulk purchases of items such as dog and cat food and cat litter. The market value share of veterinary clinics remained static in 2015, though this channel continued to play a key role in the distribution of high-end and premium pet care products, particularly specific-purpose items such as pet healthcare products and pet dietary supplements.

Cat food looks set to drive the development of pet care over the forecast period

The further development of pet care in South Korea over the forecast period will be mainly driven by the expansion of cat food. This category will continue to benefit from growth in the pet cat population and increased demand for cat food and treats products among owners. Growth in the number of single-person households in South Korea will be a key driver of growth in the pet cat population, as cats are generally perceived as being easier to care for than dogs. Cats tend to be more self-reliant than dogs, and usually do not need to be taken to veterinary clinics as often.
