In the past, premiumization focused on the betterment of pet owners and their companions, emphasizing health and safety. The future, however, is being shaped by new frontiers in premiumization like curation, partnership and personalization. Sociodemographic trends are creating new frontiers for premium-led growth, as untapped markets and pet owners look for opportunities to trade up.
