Pet Grooming, Skin & Coat, and Spa Products and Services in the U.S., 2nd Edition
Across the entire pet industry spectrum, the “pets as family” movement is cause for celebration, but perhaps nowhere is this more the case than in pet grooming and spa services and products. People treating their pets like full-fledged family members has become a societal norm, with Millennials knowing no other way and Boomers coping with empty nests, the upshot being pet owners spending more than ever before and pets spending more time with their owners than ever before. Making sure the pets are clean and well-groomed is an integral part of integrating “furbabies” both into the household, where they often share furniture and sleep in the same bed as their owners, but also into public settings, from dog parks and coffeehouses to retail shopping venues. As service providers, marketers, and retailers wholeheartedly tap in, innovation often tracks fashion trends in human spa products and services right down to the same styles and brands, while also keeping the focus squarely on pet safety. At the same time, as the Internet claims an ever larger share of pet product sales, and pet specialty-type products are increasingly available in mass-market channels, pet specialty retailers large and small are increasing their focus on pet services, and grooming services are almost always front and center.
Packaged Facts’ all-new report Pet Grooming, Skin & Coat, and Spa Products and Services in the U.S., 2nd Edition explores the latest trends in pet grooming, highlighting opportunities in both the services market and the grooming products category. The report analyzes how trends such as humanization, wellness, and pet pampering are driving market innovation, and identifies opportunities for marketers and grooming services operators now and into the future. With a focus on dogs and cats, Pet Grooming, Skin & Coat, and Spa Products and Services in the U.S., 2nd Edition provides market sizing and projections for pet grooming/spa services and product sales within the context of a broader pet market overview.
