Throughout the years, the pet market has shown significant growth across the board. One of the reasons for this growth is because younger generations are owning pets more than in previous years. This is good news for any company that makes pet products because the younger generations have a reputation for showering their pets with lavish items in all product categories. And this trend is especially noticeable in the pet supplement category.
A market research report by Technavio in 2018 on the global pet dietary supplements market predicted a compound annual growth rate of more than 5 percent during 2018-22. This predicted growth is in part due to environmental and health concerns being at the forefront for these younger pet owners. Stocking stores shelves with pet supplement products will cater to the younger generation pet owners who are starting to take on the industry in full throttle, thus adding a boost to your sales and expanding your demographic clientele.
However, many pet owners may not be fully educated on health products, including supplements, and what they can or cannot do for their pets. Not only should retailers consider stocking a variety of supplements on shelves, they would be wise to take this as an opportunity to inform younger customers on the benefits of each supplement and how it varies for each pet. This is especially important for consumers with dogs, because their health needs vary in different ways from other pets depending on their age, breed and lifestyle.
These supplements help address a wide range of canine health concerns by maintaining or improving their systems. And with many brands touting their products as being holistic, natural and even organic, dog owners have access to something that will match the lifestyle that they want to give their pet while also helping it live a happier, longer and more sustained life.
