About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Growing focus on indulgence and nutrition fuel review period growth

Pet care saw good growth for the overall review period, despite many consumers facing economic constraints in the aftermath of the economic downturn. Growth is being fuelled by a growing number of consumers viewing their pets as akin to friends or family members, with this in turn resulting in a greater willingness to spend on indulgence and health. There continued to be a marked shift from non-prepared to prepared dog and cat food during the review period, while the pet cat, small dog, small mammal and reptile population continued to grow.

Consumers increasingly concerned about pet food ingredients

There was growing concern over the ingredients used in pet food at the end of the review period, with strong media coverage of this issue by newspapers and TV programmes. Labelling legislation for pet food does not require precise ingredients information, with many consumers particularly concerned about the quality and volume of meat used by leading brands. There was also a growing focus on the sugar and carbohydrate content of pet food. These trends are partly linked to consumers' growing angst about their own diets, with many seeking to eat more natural diets or to exclude elements such as sugar.

Traditional leaders face growing competition from natural players and private label

Growing demand for natural, high-meat and food intolerance pet food is benefiting smaller specialists, such as Lily's Kitchen and MPM's Encore. Meanwhile there also continues to be strong new product development in this area, including Pets at Home's private label launch Evolution Naturally. Private label in general saw a strong performance at the end of the review period, with the quality and range of these products continuing to increase. These trends inevitably impacted the leading players Mars and Nestlé, which both lost share in 2014.

Internet retailing continues to emerge while supermarkets and hypermarkets lead

Pet care distribution continues to be shaped by consumers' demands for convenience, value and choice. Many consumers buy these products alongside their regular grocery shop, with supermarkets and hypermarkets thus remaining the most significant distribution channels at the end of the review period. Internet retailing meanwhile saw the strongest gain in value share towards the end of the review period, benefiting from many players upgrading and expanding their offer. Leading pet specialist Pets at Home notably broadened its online product range in 2014 and launched a mobile internet retailing site in 2015.

Maturity and price competition counterbalanced by premiumisation in forecast period

Pet care is expected to continue to see fairly slow but steady value growth at constant 2015 prices in the forecast period, with growth slowing only slightly in comparison to the review period. Slower growth will be linked to maturity and strong price competition, with an ongoing rise in share for private label and frequent branded price promotions. However, ongoing growth will be supported by premiumisation in many areas and by the pet humanisation trend, with the latter benefiting a wide range of products from high-meat dog and cat food to pet toys and housing.
