Pet Oral Care Products Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)
The global pet oral care products market was valued at USD 1,564.1 million in 2020 and is projected to register a CAGR of 6.6 % during the forecast period (2021-2026). Most of the consumers in the global market grappled with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, in terms of stockpiling pet oral care products, by switching to the retail e-commerce platforms after being compelled by several restrictions levied on the brick-and-mortar stores and the disruption of the overall supply channel, in general. Sales have spiked for at-home, do-it-yourself pet oral care products, which was mainly driven by the closure and/or limitations of veterinary clinics or professional salons offering these services.
The market is primarily driven by the high prevalence of dental diseases in pets. According to the Australian and American veterinary dental societies, more than 80% of dogs develop gum disease by the age of three, compared to more than 70% of cats at the same age. Therefore, the rise in awareness of pet oral health and the increase in veterinary health expenditure are the factors to propel market growth over the forecast period.
In addition to the rise in awareness about pet oral health, an increase in veterinary health expenditure is giving major boost to the market growth. Furthermore, rapid advancements and product launches have also been propelling the market globally. However, the high cost of the products and the lack of proper veterinary dentistry in developing countries are likely to hamper the market studied globally.
North America dominates the pet oral care products market globally during the forecast period. The huge pet population and rising expenditure on pet health needs by pet owners are leading to an increase in innovative product launches by various players present in the country.
