The global pet grooming products market size is expected to reach USD 14.5 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 5.7%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing pet adoption and growing awareness about their hygiene are some of the factors driving the demand for pet grooming product.

In addition, availability of wide range of medicated and organic variants in shampoo, conditioner, and ear butter have drawn greater consumer attention towards grooming products. Dogs and cats are the most common companion animals and they contribute significantly to the demand for various grooming products.

Due to thick furry coating and outdoor movements and activities, companion animals are susceptible to various diseases and infections triggered by fleas and ticks. Hence companies are introducing specific brushes and shampoos to get rid of these. For instance, SynergyLabs offers veterinary formulated medicated shampoos to relieve companion animals from bacterial infections.

Increasing adoption of pets by domestic households have opened up potential opportunities for new entrants in the market especially through online platforms. Some of the e-commerce distributors of pet products include Amazon.com; Petco Animal Supplies, Inc.; PetSmart Inc.; PetMed Express, Inc.; TABcom LLC; BarkBox; PetFlow; and Bulk Reef Supply.

Among various grooming products, shampoo and conditioner was estimated to have the highest revenue share of the global market. This scenario is majorly attributed to the increasing use of these products as they are specially customized for pet hair and its hygiene.

Asia Pacific is expected to register the highest growth over the forecast period majorly driven by the rising pet adoption in China and India in 2018. The market for companion animal in Japan is attractive with a population of around 20 million cats and dogs.

According to Japan Pet Food Association (JPFA) there are around 9.7 million cats and 11.8 million dogs living with families in Japan and these numbers are growing every year. The average life expectancy of companion cats in Japan is 14.4 years and for dogs, it is 13.9 years. Rising adoption of companion animals by their owners as family members is expected to boost the growth of the market.
