The mobile pet care market is slated to expand massively by 2030 owing to increasing demand for mobile pet grooming. In addition, rising awareness about mobile grooming and veterinary services and an increase in the pet owner population are slated to further propel market growth over the forecast timespan.
Mobile pet care services are a simple solution for busy pet owners to take care of their pets comfortably. Recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has fueled the market growth due to restrictions on movement and the subsequent dependence of pet owners on mobile pet care services for professional grooming services.
Furthermore, key market players have been focusing on technology advancements and strategic growth partnerships and innovations, thereby enhancing overall mobile pet care market dynamics. For instance, in November 2021, Alpha Grooming Pet Salon, a dog and cat grooming business, announced its expansion to Sacramento, California. The expansion was primed to serve over 200 cities in California with more than 50 grooming vans as well as professionally trained groomers. The company added that the mobile groomers were trained every 6 months to provide the best services.
In another instance, in December 2021, Home Franchise Concepts, a subsidiary of automotive company JM Family Enterprises, acquired Aussie Pet Mobile, a key player in the mobile pet grooming service market. Through the acquisition, Aussie Pet Mobile agreed to provide grooming and veterinary services inside climate-controlled mobile vans that take utmost care of pets’ comfort.
The mobile pet care market has been segmented in terms of animals, services, and region.
