Outlook for pet accessories market through to 2019.

Pet accessories is a highly fragmented and competitive market that covers a wide range of product groups including care products, toys, housing, bedding & feeding products, and collars, leads and utility products. The sector is considered to be relatively resilient to economic downturns and has generally experienced flat to marginal growth levels over recent years - a performance which can be considered good in comparison with many other ‘home product’ markets.

Key influences within the pet accessories market are pet ownership levels, trends in the types of pet owned, a demand for more convenient products and the increasing humanisation of pets, with the latter representing one of the most important reasons for the resilience of the pet accessories market during the difficult economic climate. However, the market for pet accessories remains competitive and lower cost imports are a key feature in some product segments, such as toys.

Some sectors of the market have performed better than others in recent years. Care products are seen by pet owners as essential and have continued to underpin the market, with sales of grooming products also experiencing growth in recent years as a result of rising demand for premium products and higher ownership levels of specialist and cross breeds, which require more regular grooming. The toys sector has become increasingly polarised, with cheaper products offered by some outlets, but the sector has been underpinned by increasing demand for better quality and higher value products. The bedding sector has experienced a similar trend. Aquariums and other vivariums have experienced low level growth.

Future prospects for pet accessories are relatively bright and the market is forecast to experience steady growth rates until 2019. Factors expected to help underpin the market include demand for convenience, eco-friendliness and aesthetics, as well as product innovation. The gradual shift towards smaller houses and gardens may, however, restrict higher levels of growth in pet ownership in the longer term or a change in the types of pet owned.
