Increasing Pet Adoption, Growing Awareness about the Importance of Animal Care, Presence of Pet Insurance Companies, and Launch of Advanced Pet Care Products to Propel the Animal Care Services Market Development

Increasing Adoption of Pets

The growing trend of pet adoption and pet humanisation worldwide, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, is positively influencing the market for animal care services. The surge in pet ownership can also be attributed to the changing cultural perspectives towards pets and the rising number of pet-friendly workplaces. Moreover, there is a growing adoption of pets among the geriatric population, which is bolstering the demand for animal care services to improve the pets’ quality of life.

 

Growing Awareness about the Importance of Animal Care Services

There is an rising awareness about the importance of animal care services for maintaining animal health and wellbeing, which is increasing their adoption among pet owners. The rising awareness regarding the need to maintain cleanliness in animals through proper pet care and grooming products for preventing the spread of zoonotic diseases among the human population is supporting the animal care services market development.

 

Presence of Pet Insurance Companies

There is an expanding presence of pet insurance companies, like Wagmo, that offer pet insurance, pet wellness plans, and financial tools to pet owners. Such companies play a crucial role to encourage pet care and prevent chronic diseases cost-efficiently. 

 

Launch of Superior Quality and Advanced Animal Care Products

Various leading companies are developing pet care products, such as shampoos and conditioners, using natural materials which contain no steroids, hormones, or alcohol. Moreover, continuous efforts made by the market players in exploring preventative healthcare for pets to offer healthcare access with less strain on vets are likely to aid the market.    

 

Heightened Cost and Lack of Skilled Veterinary Professionals to Pose as Challenges in the Animal Care Services Market 

Increased Cost of Animal Care Services

High costs are associated with animal care services, such as pet food, toys, and veterinary visits, among others. This, along with the growing inflation, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, can lower the utilisation of animal care services in both developed and developing countries.

 

Lack of Skilled Veterinary Professionals and Pet Health Professionals

The shortage of veterinarians and pet health professionals as well as limited veterinary infrastructure may pose a challenge to the market. Such factors can also reduce the availability of robust animal care services due to the sudden rise in the number of people who adopted pets over the pandemic.

Cats make great pets, as they are cost-effective, low maintenance, independent, and are known to reduce loneliness. They have a long lifespan and keep the houses pest-free, which is significantly boosting their adoption. Hence, various key animal care services market players are extensively investing in developing new cat products that meet the evolving demands of cat owners.

 

Fishes are easier and less expensive to feed, do not exhibit any destructive behaviours when left alone at home, and boost emotional wellbeing of their owners. Additionally, fish aquariums enhance the aesthetic appearance of homes, which is further driving fish ownership.

 

Growing Demand for Grooming Products to Fuel the Market

There is an increasing demand for grooming products as they are critical in eliminating shedding, fleas, and ticks and detecting any underlying conditions or diseases early. They are also used on the nails of pets to avoid joint pain resulting from uncut nails and prevent the spread of germs. 

 

The expanding awareness about the importance of grooming in maintaining the overall well-being and improving the physical appearance of animals is driving the market. The availability of diverse animal grooming services and the rising inclination towards sustainable products, such as natural or organic grooming products, to reduce the risk of skin irritation are further accelerating the animal care services market development.

 

There is a growing demand for pet food with high nutritional content to provide immunity to pets and protect them from diseases. Pet owners are increasingly preferring pet food that meets the requirements of specific stages of pet life, such as for puppies or ageing dogs.

For instance, in November 2020, Nestlé Purina launched Beyond Nature's Protein, pet food that uses natural resources such as insects and plant protein. 

 

The growing awareness about the importance of good oral hygiene to avoid bad breath, tooth loss, oral pain, and organ damage is fuelling the demand for animal care services. Dietary supplements and veterinary diets are offered to pets to manage health problems, like dental, joint, skin, and digestive problems.

There is rising demand for premium quality animal care services in North America due to the growing pet ownership and improved living standards.
