October 2019 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The U.S. companion animal health market size is expected to reach USD 8.2 billion by 2026, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a 5.2% CAGR over the forecast period. Rising number of pet owners seeking better healthcare services, healthier quality foods, and high-end grooming and training services for their companion animals is a major driver for this market. According to the American Pet Products Association (National Pet Owners Survey), 85 million households in the U.S. own a pet, especially dogs, out of which 60.2 million own multiple pets. Moreover, high-income families amounted to approximately 60% of the total spending. In recent years, pet adoption has shown immense growth. This is primarily attributed to the fact that people are healthier and happier in the presence of pets, as found by the Human Animal Bond Research Initiative Foundation (HABRI).

With rising adoption of companion animals and growing concern about their health, there comes a direct association of pet insurance. Presently, pet insurance accounts for a small segment in the insurance industry. According to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) in 2017, 2.07 million pet owners had insurance for the same, which is 16.8% more than in 2016. This is showing promising growth as people have started opting for pet health insurance for timely and better treatment.

Groundbreaking technological advances are rapidly transforming the pet health industry. These expansions are producing exciting new potentials. Some of the key market players are Zoetis, Merck, Ceva Santé Animale, Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH, and Elanco, which account for a considerable share in the market owing to their broad product offerings. Companies are taking strategic initiatives in pet health, such as adoption of big data, wearable technologies to monitor pet health, and inclusion of stem cell therapy. Moreover, established players are focusing on expanding their portfolio. For instance, Elanco acquired Bayer AG’s animal health business unit in August 2019.
