Pet Supplements and Nutraceutical Treats in the U.S., 3rd Edition
February 1, 2011
 

Due primarily to a downturn on the equine side of the market, sales of pet supplements
and nutraceutical treats felt the recessionary cold, but the market now appears set to
track back up. Many positive factors are at play, including Americans’ (and especially
Baby Boomers’) receptiveness to supplements in general, the expanding health needs
of the aging pet population, the steady influx of new products, growing consumer
preference for natural remedies vs. pharmaceuticals, greater availability and exposure
at retail (including private labels), increasing acceptance and recommendation of pet
supplements by the veterinary community, and the relative affordability of nutraceutical
treats as a mode of “functional pampering” during the down economy. As a result, even
though formal regulatory status continues to evade pet supplements, sales are
expected to reach $1.6 billion by 2015, a 27% increase from 2010.

This expanded 3rd edition of Packaged Facts’ definitive Pet Supplements and
Nutraceutical Treats in the U.S. report segments the market into two categories—
supplements and nutraceutical treats (i.e., those containing supplements or novel
botanical ingredients addressing specific health conditions, such as glucosamine for
joint health)—with a primary focus on products for dogs and cats, but also extending to
horses and other types of companion animals including birds, small mammals, and
reptiles. The report provides a forward-looking examination of the market from every
angle, including breakouts by supplement type and retail channel, analysis of the
complex and evolving regulatory situation, competitive structure and marketing trends,
new product tracking, and consumer profiling.

The report also homes in on high-growth segments such as senior and natural products,
emerging ingredients, and untapped consumer demographics—such as the millions of
pet owners who use human supplements but not pet supplements and who are thus
excellent future prospects. A special feature of this new edition is proprietary survey
data from Packaged Facts’ fall 2010 pet owner survey, which charts trends in usage of
OTC and veterinary-dispensed pet supplements, compared with usage of special-
purpose nutritional formula pet foods and treats.

Market Insights: A Selection From The Report
Share of Supplement Sales by Function

Underscoring the importance of the senior segment in particular, products specifically
designated for joint and/or senior health account for approximately one-third of retail
sales of dog supplements and one-fifth of sales of cat supplements as of 2010,
Packaged Facts estimates based on level of product representation in bricks-and-
mortar retail venues, catalogs and online. Among canine supplements, joint/senior
products are followed by multivitamin/mineral products (23%) and skin/coat (22%)
supplements, with weight supplements much further down the list at just 1%.
Multivitamins rank No. 1 among feline supplements at 28%, with other top conditions
including skin/coat (23%) and digestive health (15%). Joint products—predominantly
glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid and MSM—also lead on the equine side,
accounting for almost one-third of horse supplement sales (32%), followed by digestion
supplements, general supplements, and hoof supplements.

Sales by Distribution Channel

Sales of supplements and nutraceutical treats for small animals (including dogs, cats,
and other small companion animals) are concentrated in pet specialty shops, which
account for over two-fifths (44%) of sales by Packaged Facts estimates. Veterinarians
move approximately one-quarter of these products (26%), followed by health and
natural stores. Reflecting the fringe nature of pet supplements and the tendency of
mass marketers to tread lightly in this field because of the regulatory uncertainty, mass-
market outlets (supermarkets, drugstores and mass merchandisers like Wal-Mart) are
so far a relatively minor factor in this market, accounting for approximately 11% of non-
equine supplement sales.

Use of Pet Supplements Among Dog and Cat Owners

According to a proprietary Packaged Facts online survey conducted in September 2010,
21% of dog owners use any type of nutritional supplements for their dogs, while 15% of
cat owners use supplements for their cats (“supplements” were defined for survey
respondents as “vitamin/mineral-type products in pill, tablet, liquid, or powder form”).
[Figure 6-2]

Retail Channel Choices: 48% of Pet Supplement Buyers Purchase at Pet
Superstores

Packaged Facts survey data indicate that dog and cat owners buy supplements for pets
from a wide range of retail and other suppliers, as well as cross-purchasing to a
significant degree across these various sources. [Table 6-8]
