Pet Market Market Report 2013

This Market Assessment looks closely at the UK pet market, focusing on the pet food, pet accessories and pet insurance industries. All three categories grew in value between 2008 and 2012, with the overall industry growing by 18.8% over the review period. The industry displayed year-on-year growth over the 5-year period, although it should be noted that the rate of this growth has dropped with each year, with the exception of 2012, when slightly stronger growth is estimated to have occurred.

Pet food is the largest of the three categories explored in this report, and accounted for over two thirds of the market in 2012. The sector has displayed strong growth in recent years, due partly to rising commodity costs and also to ‘premiumisation’ linked to new product development (NPD) that has centred around trends in the human food industry. Organic and healthy food, and environmentally friendly and convenient packaging, have caught on in the pet food sector, leading to a larger range of high-end products. Treats in particular have performed well, with the vast majority of pet owners buying these for their pets at least occasionally.
