 With more people adopting pets during the pandemic, the overall pet care market expanded, leading to a growth in the demand for all types of pet care products, including skin and coat care products. However, the economic impact of the pandemic led to a reduction in heavy spending on non-essential items, including pet care products. As consumers became more price-sensitive, chose lower-priced or generic alternatives rather than premium products.

The trend of pet ownership is increasing over the years, and pets are now being viewed more as members of the family and as companions. The U.S., Russia, China, and France are some of the countries with the largest populations of pet dogs and cats, according to Petsecure. In addition, Americans spend more than USD 50 billion a year on their dogs. As pet owners become more health-conscious themselves, they tend to pay more attention to their pets' health and well-being. This has led to an increased demand for products that promote pet health, including skin and coat care products.

In addition, brands have responded to the trends in the pet skin and coat care market by introducing products that cater to the growing demand for natural and organic ingredients. Such products are known for their soothing and healing properties, making them ideal for use on pets with sensitive skin. 4-Legger for instance is a brand that offers a line of USDA-certified organic pet skin and coat care products, including shampoos and conditioners that are made with natural ingredients like aloe vera, lemongrass, and rosemary.

As disposable incomes rise, pet owners are willing to spend more on their pets' health and well-being, including high-quality pet care products. A 2021-2022 survey by National Pet Owners suggests that total expenditure on pets in the U.S. came up to USD 123.6 billion, a 19% increase from USD 103.6 billion in 2020. Several premium brands have been operating in this market that offers high-quality products formulated with natural and organic ingredients and brands that are free from harsh chemicals. Earthbath for instance is a popular brand in this segment that offers natural pet grooming products. Their skin and coat care products are formulated with natural ingredients, such as oatmeal, aloe vera, and tea tree oil, and are free from harsh chemicals and artificial fragrances.

Furthermore, sustainability has become a significant concern in the pet skin and coat care industry. Consumers are increasingly aware of the environmental impact of pet grooming products and are looking for sustainable alternatives. Kin+kind, a U.S. based company creates natural and organic pet grooming products. They use eco-friendly packaging and source ingredients from sustainable farms. All their products moreover are plant-based, vet-formulated, cruelty-free, USDA organic, and USDA Bio-Based.
