Bringing in broad pet market perspective based on more than a dozen other pet market reports, along with a unique “cross-market” focus examining trends in both the veterinary (pharmaceutical) and retail (OTC) sectors, this all-new report from Packaged Facts analyzes the market for medications for dogs and cats, with a particular focus on products marketed directly to consumers. Areas covered include parasite prevention and control (flea, tick, heartworm, etc.), pain management (focusing on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), mood disorders, overweight/obesity, cognitive dysfunction and oral care. Top U.S. marketers profiled include all of the largest pharmaceutical companies (Pfizer, Intervet-Schering, Bayer, Fort Dodge, Novartis, etc.) as well as the top marketers of retail pet health lines (Central Garden & Pet, Hartz, Sergeant’s).
Other high-interest areas examined in this report—all from the perspective of their potential impact on future market performance—include product diversion outside the veterinary channel, growth of online retailing via outfits including PetMed Express, the effects of the 2008 economic crisis, and the possibility of ethical brands’ moving officially into retail channels. Retail sales are quantified and projected forward through 2012, while the retail performance of pet medication marketers and brands is evaluated using Information Resources, Inc. InfoScan Review data. In addition, uniquely cross-tabulated consumer survey data from Simmons Market Research Bureau provides penetrating insight into pet medication consumer usage rates, demographics and psychographics.
