COVID-19 impacts on the U.S. pet industry were not what seemed inevitable during the initial months of the pandemic. Instead, 2020 turned out to be a banner year for the market, with sales growth of 9% pushing overall pet industry sales to $107 billion, as reported by Packaged Facts' just released U.S. Pet Market Outlook, 2021-2022.


패키지드 팩트 (Packaged Facts)가 최근 발표한 2021-2022년 미국 반려동물 시장 전망 (US Pet Market Outlook)에 따르면, 9%의 매출 성장으로 전체 반려동물 산업 매출이 1,070억 달러 증가했다.



Along with the re-confirmed recession resistance of the pet industry, several factors support an extremely positive near- and long-term outlook for the pet market. A surge in pet acquisition and adoption continued through Christmas/Winter Holidays 2020.  New pet acquisition—especially strong among those who already had pets and those with children in the home—brought the number of pet dogs to 96 million (up over 10 million from 2019) and the number of pet cats to 32 million (up over 2 million).


In contrast to pet population patterns in the wake of the Great Recession of 2007-2009, which triggered a "Decade of the Dog" for the industry, pet adoption and acquisition not only spanned pet types but disproportionately included pets other than dogs and cats, especially reptiles or small mammals such as rabbits, hamsters, and gerbils. As indicated in the Packaged Facts report, more households now are "multiple-pet" in having more than one of a single type of pet, and in having more than one type of pet. It's a dog-and-cat world.


Once pets are homed, most pet care spending is non-discretionary, such that pet food and non-food supply sales, as well as veterinary sector revenues, gained strength despite COVID-19 challenges and dislocations. Moreover, as noted by Packaged Facts research director David Sprinkle, "not just pets but pet stores and pet care businesses are now culturally and politically inscribed as essential."


At the same time, brick-and-mortar-based retailers are more Internet-focused than ever, tapping in to the continued acceleration of online shopping and featuring expanded brick-and-click options including curbside pickup and same-day delivery. From an omnimarket vantage, digital pet care opportunities extend beyond e-commerce to emerging areas such as veterinary telemedicine and teletriage, in sync with rapid gains in pet medications sales online through websites such as Chewy Pharmacy and


오프라인 기반 소매 업체는 그 어느 때보다 인터넷에 집중하고 있으며 온라인 쇼핑의 지속적인 가속화를 활용하고 도로변 픽업 및 당일 배송을 포함한 확장된 오프라인 클릭 옵션을 제공한다. 옴니 마켓의 관점에서 디지털 반려동물 관리 기회는 전자 상거래를 넘어 수의학 원격 진료와 같은 신흥 영역으로 확장되어 Chewy PharmacyWalmartPetRx.com과 같은 웹사이트를 통해 온라인으로 반려동물 의약품 판매가 빠르게 증가한다.



While the pet industry has long been an investor favorite, the blockbuster performance of the U.S. pet industry despite COVID-19 has spurred a new flurry of M&A and investment activity.  Major developments include Petco's initial public offering, BarkBox's $1.6 billion valuation as a public company, and the acquisition of market retailers or brands including Pet Supplies Plus, Natural Balance, WellPet, Breeder's Choice, and Solid Gold.  As with puppy dog eyes, investors are finding the pet market very hard to say no to.


반려동물 산업은 오랫동안 투자자들의 사랑을 받아 왔지만 COVID-19에도 불구하고 미국 반려동물 산업의 블록버스터 성과는 새로운 M&A와 투자 활동을 촉발시켰다. 주요 개발에는 Petco의 초기 공모, BarkBox의 상장 기업으로서의 16억 달러 가치평가, Pet Supplies Plus, Natural Balance, WellPet, Breeder's Choice 및 Solid Gold를 포함한 시장 소매업체 또는 브랜드 인수가 포함된다. 강아지 눈과 마찬가지로 투자자들은 반려동물 시장을 거부하기가 매우 어렵다는 사실을 알고 있다.
