Petfood 2.0: Pet Humanisation Moves Down the Supply Chain

JaredKoertenAnalyst Insight by Jared Koerten – Senior Research Analyst

View Jared Koerten's profile on LinkedIn

The concept of pet humanisation is not new, and its effects on pet food aisles in the US have been evident to even the most casual observer. Pet food labelled as “natural” or “grain-free” increasingly command larger portions of shelf space, and buzzwords like “superfoods”, “high protein”, or “freshly made” have migrated into pet food. Sales of premium pet food have significantly outpaced other price tiers and average unit prices have risen alongside consumer demand for higher-quality food for their pets. As consumers are increasingly concerned with eating a healthier diet as part of their own wellness regimen, they are looking to mirror these choices in the food they are choosing for their pets.

While the effects of pet humanisation have been most evident among consumers and the retail side of the market, the longevity of this trend is now making serious ripples across all levels of the pet food supply chain. This was a clear theme that emerged at the Petfood 2.0 conference in Chicago on 23-24 September 2014. A series of insightful speakers explored how various parts of the pet food supply chain are facing important new challenges in the face of pet humanisation and a consumer base that is more educated and discerning than ever before.

Pet Humanisation: The trend and its Strategic Impact on Global Pet Care Markets

GinaWestbrookAnalyst Insight by Gina Westbrook - Director of Strategy Briefings

Pet owners are increasingly treating their cats, dogs and even small mammals like members of their family. The opportunity to commercialise this trend into a vast range of goods and services – from dog beer to cat counselling, from pet weddings to “social petworking” – is staggering for the company that can position itself to gain credibility among this growing demographic. Our new Strategy Briefing looks at the impact on pet care markets worldwide.  There are three main types of pet owner who are keen to spend heavily on their pets; they have different, albeit overlapping, priorities and interests.

This group likes brands that feel safe and reliable, that they believe to be credible and that they trust with their pet’s welfare. In many cases, especially at the higher spending end of this group, this can mean a focus on small businesses with an ethical business practice, and a distrust of large corporations.

 For services, local businesses with a good track record may be preferred over a more clinical, large-scale contenders, while products, especially food, with a cottage industry feel tend to perform well.

Dog Owners Fighting an Uphill Battle in the UAE

Damian ShoreAnalyst Insight by Damian Shore - Contributing Analyst

View Damian Shore's profile on LinkedIn

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has a small, but rapidly expanding, pet care market, although rising tensions between locals and dog-loving expatriates are threatening to put a brake on growth. However, this also represents an opportunity to boost sales of pet services and products.

Annual pet care sales approaching US$100 million

The UAE pet care market was worth US$94 million in 2013, having exhibited a real CAGR of 7% on 2008. The proportion of households with a cat rose from 7% to 8% over this period, while the proportion with a dog increased from 5% to 6%. As in many other Muslim countries, dogs are regarded as ‘haram’ (unclean) in the UAE. However, expatriates (many of whom are non-Muslims and from societies where pets in general, and dogs in particular, are increasingly indulged) significantly outnumber locals; according to one estimate, last year, they accounted for almost 90% of the local population.

Biologically Appropriate Raw Food: Fad or New Trend?

Skepticism of processed, packaged dog food is setting the stage for a rise in biologically appropriate raw food, or BARF. Consumers who buy BARF products maintain that mainstream dog food is unhealthy for their pets’ digestive systems and are willing to pay a premium price and dedicate freezer space for this type of pet food. The key for manufacturers of BARF products is to reach out to health-oriented consumers to continue to grow sales or risk consumers labeling the products as an ideological trend.

Water Efficiency an Important Trend in Consumer Appliances

Thidathip Tawichai

With Thidathip Tawichai, Consumer Appliances Industry Analyst

Many countries are struggling with managing their water supplies due to various reasons including lack of rainfall, limited space for reservoirs and lack of natural water resources. Many appliance manufacturers are helping to conserve water by introducing water efficient appliances, mainly dishwashers and washing machines. The governments of many countries now rate the water efficiency of appliances along with offering incentives to buy these machines. Water conservation will continue to be an ongoing effort in many countries so these appliances will become even more efficient in the future.
