Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The growing demand for fortified pet food is a recent trend gaining traction in the market. Many health problems and diseases such as skin allergies, arthritis, brain aging, digestive disorders, and obesity are common among pets such as dogs, cats, and horses. This can create serious concerns for pet owners. Increasing health consciousness among pet owners has given rise to health-driven food options for pets such as fortified food products, nutraceuticals, and functional food products. A growing number of pet products are being promoted as products containing added vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, all-natural ingredients, and no preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors. Manufacturers are formulating pet food products with vitamins, minerals, fiber and other ingredients due to consumer demand for balanced diet for pets.”

According to the report, high profit margins for manufacturers is an important driver contributing to this market’s growth. Pet care manufacturers are leveraging on the growing number of pet owners and their willingness to pay for premium products by offering a wide range of innovative, specialized, and premium products. Pet retail stores are estimated to have gross profit margins of 35%-45%. Pet food manufacturers are experiencing high profitability as pet owners continue to purchase special food formulations to maintain the health and well-being of their pets. With strong demand and rising sales, manufactures are expected to achieve even higher profit margins. Products such as food and pet supplies have high mark-ups and drive the profitability of manufacturers.

Further, the report states that the high instances of pet allergies is a major challenge this market is facing. Animals are carriers of harmful bacteria such as Campylobacter jejuni. Diseases like cryptosporidiosis are often transmitted to humans, especially children, via animals. In addition, many furred and feathered animals, primarily cats and birds, cause allergies in humans. Some proteins found in the saliva and urine of pets like cats and dogs may also cause skin allergies in people. Fifteen to thirty percent of allergies in human beings are caused due to allergic reactions to dogs or cats. Pets such as cats and dogs can cause allergic diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis in human beings. People with weaker immune systems and certain health conditions such as asthma are more susceptible to such allergies. Therefore, they are advised not to keep pets at home. These factors tend to limit pet adoption and hinder the growth of the pet care market.
