Cat Litter, Dog Waste Bags Shape $3.5 Billion Pet Clean-Up Market

June 22, 2016

According to a new Packaged Facts report, the diverse pet clean-up products market reached $3.5 billion in 2015 thanks in part to the acceleration of cat litter and dog waste bag sales.

The report, entitled “Pet Litter, Clean-Up, and Odor Control Products: U.S. Market Trends,” found that the total worth of the pet clean-up market is up $3 billion in 2010. This represents a 3.4 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the period.

Packaged Facts estimates that the market will reach $4 billion by 2020. The two greatest factors impacting the market are continued growth in cat litter, especially online purchases of litter, and increased usage of dog waste bags.

Cat litter is by far the largest category in the pet clean-up and odor-control market, with nearly $2.9 billion in sales and an 82 percent market share for 2015. Packaged Facts’ April 2016 survey results show that 11 percent of cat owners have litter delivered to their homes, and an additional 39 percent are interested in having it delivered in the future.

The dog waste bag category is also poised for expansion. Waste pickup products will become increasingly important as plastic shopping bag taxes become common across the country.

The report analyzes the market by dividing it into cat litter, litter boxes and accessories, puppy and training pads and accessories, dog waste bags and accessories, and pet clean-up and odor control sprays and concentrates. It charts historical sales and projections for the market and analyzes marketing and trends.
