Pet & Pet Supplies Stores

Overview

The 5,100 pet retailers in the US sell products and services related to pets, including pet foods, pet supplies, pet services, and live pets. The top four companies, including large retailers like PetSmart and Petco, account for almost 70% of industry sales. The industry also includes pet retailing franchises, such as PetLand.

Heavy Competition

Strong industry sales have resulted in competition for pet products from a variety of alternative channels, including warehouse clubs, grocery stores, mass merchandisers, veterinarians, and E-commerce and catalog retailers.

Proliferation Of New Products

Similar to the human food market, the pet food sector is driven by product innovation, with manufacturers constantly developing and introducing new items.
