The heightened emphasis these days on professional pet grooming, driven in large part by PETsMART’s and PETCO’s strong focus on services, is a dual-edged sword for at-home grooming products, potentially increasing consumer interest in the products while also competing for sales. Spa- and professional-style products including botanical-based shampoos, conditioners, and natural grooming products are at the core of the new product thrust for at-home pet care, along with a new generation of manual and electric grooming implements and accessories positioned on ergonomic design appeals and, of course, performance. It is therefore no wonder that many marketers that have traditionally targeted professional groomers are now also honing in on the consumer market, and vice versa. Hot new products are the focus of this report, which also evaluates the historical size and growth prospects of this business and profiles market innovators like Virbac and Bamboo.
