Pet Food & Supplies Wholesaling

Domesticated pets, particularly cats and dogs, are an engrained part of many US households, and gradually increasing numbers of both the number of pets and the number of US households over the past several decades has ensured the continued necessity of pet food and supplies wholesalers. Although the industry continues to evolve with the changing structure of the US economy through merger and acquisition activity among its largest companies, total revenue revenue growth has been mostly stable over the past five years. Moreover, industry wholesalers are poised for continued growth going forward, although recent increases in several key economic indicators may no longer be as substantial over the five years to 2020. As disposable incomes taper off, households may slow their recent purchases of pets and pet supplies. These economic indicators are all anticipated to experience slightly slower growth over the next five years. Nevertheless, they will create favorable conditions for industry growth.

This industry includes businesses that purchase products from upstream industries for sale to downstream industries, including retailers, consumers and other wholesalers. Products sold in this industry include wet and dry food for dogs and cats, bird feed, other pet food and treats, food bowls, collars and leashes, litter, cages, travel carriers and other pet supplies and accessories. Companies in this industry may also wholesale pets.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
