About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Good performance in 2013

Pet care registered another successful year in 2013, with overall current growth of 4%, with pet food growing by 4% and pet products by 5%. As the signs of economic recovery intensified, pet owners were keen to get the best for their pets, in spite of rising prices observed across all categories.

Quality over quantity

The rise in product quality in pet food, along with price increases, meant that owners reduced the volume of food they fed their pet, relying on more nutritional products to make their animal feel full and have more energy for longer. The best performances were recorded by premium pet food, as well as pet products, as pets’ health and happiness remained the priority to their owners.

A very competitive environment for companies

Mars UK and Nestlé Purina remained the two biggest players in pet care in 2013, but private label was gaining ground. These products offer value for money, thanks to competitive prices for pet food and pet products, as well as offering economy and mid-priced ranges of food products – responding to both the budgets of price-conscious consumers and the needs of consumers with less restricted budgets.

A very competitive environment for retailers

Grocery retailers remain the main distributors of pet care products, followed by pet products specialists. UK consumers prefer to buy pet products at the same time as they do their weekly grocery shopping for the family, for convenience reasons. These outlets also offer a very wide range of products at competitive prices, which attracts pet owners. On the other hand, some owners appreciate the experience and advantages of going into specialised stores, getting a wider choice of both food and pet products, as well as being able to receive advice from knowledgeable staff. Finally, internet sales are rising via online retailers, as well as grocers’ and pet superstores’ websites, as they are convenient and often offer cheaper prices.

An optimistic future

Pet care is expected to continue to grow over the forecast period, with a value CAGR of 1% at constant 2014 prices. As prices are expected to rise further due to higher demand for premium pet food and pet products, the pet care market should be lucrative in the years to come. This outlook is more optimistic than it was a year ago, as there were no signs of economic improvement then, but from September 2013 consumer confidence started rising again, and this should have a positive impact on future sales.
