Small pets are much more likely to indulged and humanized than larger pets. The popularity of pet fashion among pet owners have a positive impact on the market and is expected to contribute a significant growth during the forecast period.

North America is Leading the Pet Care Market

The pet care market in North America is well matured in terms of consumers and available products in the market. Premiumization is playing a key role in driving the sales of the pet care market in North America. There is a growing demand for natural pet food and is gaining traction across the United States consumers owing to obesity risks in pets such as dogs and cats. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 55% of dogs and cats in the United States are obese. This presents a greater opportunity for manufacturers for adding quality ingredients, diets and launch added value products to cater to the growing consumer interest towards premium products. With more product launches with value-added quality ingredients, the demand for pet care products is expected to grow further during the forecast period.
