In a 2013 survey carried out by the Pet Food Manufacturer’s Association, it was estimated that 45% of UK households have pets. The majority by far own dogs (25 % of households) or cats (19% of households).
As the UK moves closer over the next decade 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 dog over the course of its lifetime is now approximately £16,000. 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 £2.1 billion. With the sheer size of this industry, it is clear it’s a booming sector of the market and a lucrative one in which to invest. With pet owners growing increasingly discerning about their pet’s quality of life, there is much room for expansion into this industry by new franchisees.
