Packaged Facts has published the latest edition of its U.S. Pet Market Outlook Report for 2017-2018. In the report, the market research firm explores “growing competition in the online pet products and services industry’s channel; examines the impact ecommerce sales have on traditional brick-and-mortar pet businesses; and analyzes the macro trends in pet products and services that are driving consumers to look beyond PetSmart, Petco, Walmart, and other big-name pet product retailers in their quest to find the very best for their furry and feathered companions,” according to an announcement from the firm.
The report, which evaluates segments of the market including veterinary services, pet food, nonfood pet supplies and non-medial pet services (grooming, boarding, training and more), also makes predictions of market size and growth for each category and examines each channel within the pet product market. According to the study’s abstract, the Pet Owner Survey that is also included is supplemented by “an extensive analysis of Simmons’ National Consumer Study, which is based on approximately 25,000 adults respondents surveyed annually.”
