Sales approaching 100 bn dollars

New data on US pet supplies market

The pet supplies industry in the USA is experiencing considerable growth.

American Pet Products Association (APPA) analysts have calculated that sales of pet products and services in the United States reached 95.7 bn dollars in 2019.

Pet food and treats made up the largest proportion of the total, with 2019 sales amounting to 36.9 bn dollars (2018: 30.32 bn dollars), led by dog and cat food. APPA analysts have forecast that the pet food and treats category sales will increase by 4 per cent in 2020.

Veterinary care & product sales came in at 29.3 bn dollars. After these, supplies, live animals and OTC medicine sold at retail accounted for 19.2 bn dollars. New to APPA's pet spending data, this category also includes estimated retail sales of fish, reptiles, small animals and birds, which had previously formed a separate category.

The category of other services (including boarding, grooming, insurance, training, pet sitting and walking and all services outside of veterinary care) contributed 10.3 bn dollars to industry sales last year and recorded the second highest year-on-year growth (6 per cent), just behind food and treats.
