Dublin, Oct. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Durable Dog and Cat Pet Care Products in the U.S., 3rd Edition” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The pet durables market to see a nearly 10% increase in 2020 bringing sales to $5.7 billion. The market is forecast to maintain strong but moderating annual sales gains through 2024, resulting in a compound annual growth rate of 4.4%.

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted almost every facet of American life, and the durable pet products market has more than risen to the challenge, providing pet owners with the products they need to make pet ownership in the age of COVID-19 easier and more enjoyable for both pet and owner.

All of the durable pet product categories experienced a significant sales bump during the initial stages of the pandemic, as pet owners rushed to purchase products such as gates and crates to keep pets contained while they worked from home, collars and leashes for the walks they now had the time to take, and toys to help keep pets entertained.

On top of this, dog and cat ownership levels have increased, spurred by stay-at-home orders driving Americans to obtain new pets for companionship or to help keep children occupied, resulting in a boom in sales of durables new pets require including bowls, litter boxes, collars, beds, and toys.

Key trends explored include trends in new pet ownership, the pandemic-accelerated shift to e-commerce, the focus on health and wellness, opportunities for private-label products, and the growing interest in connected or “smart” pet products.
