About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Growth slows but continues

Relative to its strong performance in previous years of the review period, pet care in the US slowed in 2014. A variety of factors, including slow pet population growth, a demographic transition among pet owners and price competition between manufacturers decelerated retail value growth for most of 2014. Despite the slowdown, pet care remains a standout in a relatively stagnant consumer packaged goods (CPG) environment in the US. Pet humanisation is alive and well and continues to drive growth at the premium end of the market.

The changing demographic of pet owners

Baby boomers have been the most important demographic for US pet care and humanisation trends, driving industry growth over the past decade. In 2014, however, some members of this ageing demographic decided that pet ownership was no longer desirable or feasible. However, 2014 also marked a watershed year for a new group of pet owners – millennials. Economic concerns hindered the ability of many millennials to enter pet care during the recession, but they are becoming increasingly important as pet owners as the economic recovery continues. This demographic shift among pet owners has huge ramifications for the prospects of pet care in the US.

Fierce competition spurs merger and acquisition activity

The continued growth in US pet care made the industry increasingly competitive in 2014-2015. As a result, there were several major acquisitions, including: Mars’s purchase of Procter & Gamble’s pet care business in April 2014; PetSmart’s sale to a group of investors led by BC Partners; and JM Smucker’s acquisition of Big Heart Pet Brands in March 2015. At the same time, several speciality manufacturers, including Freshpet and Blue Buffalo, filed for initial public offerings (IPOs) in 2014-2015. Finally, Nestlé Purina PetCare and Blue Buffalo traded a series of highly-publicised lawsuits in 2014-2015, regarding ingredient claims made by Blue Buffalo. As pet care stands out as one of the fastest-growing areas in the US consumer packaged goods landscape, competition continues to intensify as more parties look to capitalise on this growth.

Alternative distribution channels emerge

While the growth of pet superstores at the expense of mass channels remains an important narrative in the pet care retail landscape, two other channels have emerged as serious competitors, internet retailing and home improvement and gardening stores. Both of these emerging channels are unmatched in terms of product mix, hold distinct locational advantages and are fierce competitors on pricing. These channels account for a significant and fast-growing share of pet care sales.

A bright outlook for pet care

As millennials take the reins from baby boomers as the primary demographic of pet owners, they stand to further develop the pet humanisation trend. These consumers, which already have high levels of per capita spending relative to income, will see their earning power grow in the short to medium term and drive overall sales growth in pet care. Growth in retail value sales, however, will not translate into a significant increase in retail volume sales, as modest pet population growth and continued preferences for smaller dogs limit potential.
