Global pet clothing market size was valued at USD 5.7 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach a value of USD 7.3 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.44% over the forecast period (2022–2028).
Westford, USA, Dec. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There are an estimated 1.4 billion pets globally! That's a whole lot of furry (and not so furry) friends. The majority of these pets are dogs and cats, making up 60% of the global pet population in the global pet clothing market. Other popular pets include fish, birds, and small mammals like rabbits and guinea pigs. Interestingly, the global pet population has been steadily growing for the last few decades. This is likely due to a number of factors including urbanization (more people living in cities), an increase in disposable income (people have more money to spend on their pets), and changing social attitudes (pets are now seen as family members).
SkyQuest's analysis of the pet clothing market shows that the market is growing at a healthy rate. The main drivers of this growth are the increasing popularity of pets and the trend for pet owners to dress their pets in fashionable clothing. The report found that sales of pet clothing have grown by 21% since 2019, and that the average spend on pet clothes has increased by 9%. The majority of pet clothing sales (60%) come from dog owners, with cat owners accounting for a further 30%.
The report also found that the most popular items of pet clothing are t-shirts, sweaters and coats. Pet owners are also increasingly buying accessories such as collars, leads and harnesses. Our analysis shows that the pet clothing market is a thriving and growing industry. With more people owning pets and dressing them in fashionable clothing, there is plenty of opportunity for further growth in this sector. However, the analysis also reveals that the market is highly fragmented, with a large number of small brands competing for market share. This fragmentation makes it difficult for any one brand to dominate the market.
So, what does this all mean for businesses operating in the pet space? First and foremost, it's important to keep an eye on the trends driving industry growth. Increased pet ownership, the humanization of pets, and fashion-conscious consumers are all trends that businesses need to be aware of. Secondly, there's still plenty of room for new players in the market.
