Growth in pet supplement sales somewhat lags overall pet product sales growth in the U.S., with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% between 2010 and 2014 advancing the pet supplement market to $541 million 2014. In response to this ongoing challenge, supplement marketers are introducing new products that mimic the key trends in human supplements in hopes of enticing more pet owners to give supplements to their pets. Key crossover trends include natural and organic supplements, as well as supplements focused on obesity and aging. Joint health-related supplements remain the top category, capturing even more market share as marketers increase awareness of the benefits of using such supplements to maintain the health of older pets. The pet supplement marketâ€™s biggest challenge is the much faster sales growth of nutraceutical treatsâ€”functional biscuits and soft chews designed to be more enjoyable and palatable than traditional pills or tablets while still providing health benefits. Supplement marketers are combating this trend by introducing more alternative format products of their own, with numerous new liquid and powder supplements as well as gels and pastes.
