Executive Summary

Jun 2019
PROSPECTS
Innovations underpin value growth

The health of their pet dogs and cats is very important to owners and pet healthcare manufacturers continue to launch new products to address various areas of concern such as skin care. For example, Frontline Pet Care Skin Care Gel for dogs and cats has been developed to treat patches of irritated skin.

The humanisation trend encompasses technology and luxury shopping

The humanisation trend in pet care continues to see UK pet owners treat their pets as valued companions or family members, and therefore want them to have the same products that people have. Products that are sought after include advanced pet products which provide entertainment during playtime, such as interactive toys, or assist in monitoring or communication, such as fitness trackers, or allow owners to dress up their pets with fashionable and luxury pet clothing.

Trends in pet dietary supplements

The BARF diet (biologically appropriate raw foods for dogs) may be controversial but the trend is feeding into pet dietary supplements. The AniForte brand offers a range of pet food supplements which it claims as 100% natural.

Beaphar focuses on the comfort of dogs and cats

Beaphar launched two new pet products in 2018. Beaphar CatComfort is a pheromone range of diffusers and sprays formulated to help reduce stress and anxiety in cats, which may be caused by changes in their environment or events such as fireworks.

Tractive trackers monitor a dog’s location and activity

Tractive has tapped into the premiumisation and technology trends in pet care with the launch of a GPS tracker for dogs. The lightweight but robust and waterproof tracker is fitted onto the dog’s collar and the associated app can trace their whereabouts and monitor their nocturnal habits.
