Pet Stores in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Pet Stores in Canada

The Pet Stores industry in Canada performed strongly over the five years to 2018 as cats, dogs, fish and birds remained popular home companions. High pet ownership rates and an increasing number of pet parents, those that treat their pets as family members, supported demand for industry products. Additionally, higher household income levels and rising consumer confidence encouraged consumers to indulge their pets with price-premium pet products, boosting industry demand. Pet stores, which are traditionally small and independently owned operations, have endured mounting competition from supermarkets, mass merchandisers and online retailers. In addition to luring consumers with competitive prices, these retailers offer the convenience of one-stop shopping. Over the five years to 2023, the Pet Stores industry in Canada is projected to maintain strong growth.

This industry sells a variety of pets, including dogs, cats, fish and birds. Stores also sell pet food and pet supplies, such as collars, leashes, health and beauty aids, shampoos, medication, toys, pet containers, dog kennels and cat furniture. Some stores also offer pet services, such as grooming and training.

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.
