In the Pet Food Manufacturers' Association's Annual Report 2016, it was estimated that 40% of UK households have pets. The majority by far own dogs (24% of households) or cats (17% of households).
As the UK moves closer to half of all households in the country owning pets, the pet industry will only continue to grow. As it is, pet products and services are rapidly increasing in value. It is estimated that the cost of keeping a cat over the course of its lifetime is now approximately £17,000, while a dog can cost between £16,000 and £31,000. This is a combination of veterinary costs, grooming, dog food, toys and comforts.
In the UK alone, recent figures valued the pet food market at £2.6 billion. With the sheer size of this industry, it's clearly a booming sector of the market and a lucrative one in which to invest. With pet owners growing increasingly discerning about their pets' quality of life, there is much room for expansion into this industry by new franchisees.
