Pet humanisation drives growth again


Against the backdrop of weak pet population growth and a shift to smaller dog breeds, value growth in US pet care was once again driven primarily by rising average unit prices in 2015. As owners continue to humanise their pets, many are looking to integrate their own dietary trends in foods for their companions (such as gluten-free or less processed). This continued to drive strong growth in premium pet foods with natural, grain-free, raw diet or paleo positioning. Outside of food, pet humanisation trends generated strong demand for pet products in 2015, as owners purchased toys, apparel, technology and other accessories to make their pet part of the family.

Supply chains come into focus


While helping to drive value sales, pet humanisation is a double-edged sword for pet food manufacturers. Consumers are more informed than ever, and are scrutinising the sourcing and quality of the ingredients in pet food. They are also willing to react quickly to recalls or negative press on a product, and will voice their concerns on blogs, social media or via word of mouth. In 2015, for instance, dog owners punished the Beneful brand for rumoured quality issues, while cat owners voiced strong opposition to the alleged use of slave labour in cat food supply chains. At the same time, agencies such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are taking further steps to regulate pet food under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). As a result, quality control and effective supply chain management are more essential than ever for pet food manufacturers.

M&A activity slows in pet food


Since the JM Smucker Co’s acquisition of Big Heart Pet Brands in March 2015, M&A activity in pet food slowed in the second half of 2015 and early 2016. Smaller specialty manufacturers in the premium space continue to be attractive acquisition targets for larger companies, and Nestlé Purina added Merrick Pet Care to its portfolio in July 2015. Despite this move, it is likely that M&A activity in pet food will be more muted in 2016 than during the flurry of activity in 2014 and early 2015. The more highly fragmented pet products and, on the other hand, is more fertile ground for future M&A efforts. In 2015, for instance, Spectrum Brands acquired Salix Animal Health while Central Garden & Pet Co acquired both IMS Pet Industries Inc and Dallas Manufacturing Co. Given the strong recent performance and high degree of fragmentation within pet products, M&A activity is likely to intensify in this segment in the coming years.

Ecommerce emerges in pet care


As millennials emerge as the next major group of US pet owners, the role of technology in pet care is becoming more important. Millennials transformed the way consumers shop through online product ratings, real-time price comparisons, detailed product reviews on social media and the rise of the blogosphere. One of the most important effects of this shift is the rise of internet retailing in pet care, which continued its rapid growth in 2015. As ecommerce becomes increasingly important in pet care, manufacturers and retailers are looking for ways to adapt and remain competitive, as this trend is likely accelerate in the coming years.

Future growth expected

The rise of millennials as pet owners is good news for pet humanisation trends, which are expected to accelerate in the future. As pet owners look to pamper their companions, they will invest more in higher-quality foods and products that contribute to the health, wellbeing and happiness of their pets. Therefore, while volume sales will remain sluggish on the back of weak pet population trends, average unit prices and value sales are expected to continue the strong growth they exhibited in recent years.
