Pet Market Outlook and Opportunities in a Transformed Landscape

Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: Room W207B 
Cost to attend: FREE

Presented by: David Sprinkle, Packaged Facts

The U.S. pet industry is being transformed by changing mentalities about pets and pet care, with pet health and wellness increasingly broadly defined.  Pet parenting, pet ownership, generational, economic, and omnichannel trends have permanently broken down traditional industry boundaries.  With ecommerce sales dominating pet industry headlines, pet food brands and big-box retailers increasingly look to reorient and differentiate, including through involvement with pet welfare causes and with veterinary and non-medical pet services. Focusing on the dog and cat category consumer insights, this data-rich presentation tracks these evolving patterns and their implications for pet industry manufacturers, retailers, and service providers alike.

The State of Global Pet Care:  How a New Generation of Pet Owners are Changing the Market Landscape

Time:  2:00pm - 3:00pm
Location:  Room W207B
Cost to attend: FREE

Presented by:  Jared Koerten, Head of Pet Care, Euromonitor International

The demographic profile of pet owners is changing around the world. A value-seeking, online-obsessed group of younger consumers is re-defining both the types of products they want and where they want to buy them. At the same time, a growing class of pet owners in emerging markets are changing the landscape for pet food and products in ways that will transform the global market in the coming decades. This presentation will explore these trends and offer strategies that manufacturers can adapt to best address this rapidly-changing market landscape.
