United States Natural, Organic, and Eco-Friendly Pet Products Market 2012-2021 - Research and Markets

 
[07-April-2017]
 

DUBLIN, April 07, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Natural, Organic, and Eco-Friendly Pet Products in the U.S., 6th Edition" report to their offering.

Research and Markets Logo

"Natural, Organic and Eco-Friendly Pet Products in the U.S." also examines how the growth of the natural pet market is fueled in part by human market trends. The environmental, safety, and social concerns that are important to U.S. consumers when purchasing products for themselves frequently also influence their pet product purchases, so the perennial strong performance of natural, organic and eco-friendly products on the human side-where these trends are much further along-suggests solid market growth potential for pet.

Another human/pet market driver is the demand for increased transparency in product content and composition, increasing the importance of both what is-and at times even more importantly, what isn't-in a product. At the same time, although natural and organic products benefit from the consumer perception, whether real or imagined, that they are purer and safer than regular products, product safety is a growing factor given the many recalls of the past few years.

Building on the analysis presented in the previous five editions of this report, this fully updated sixth edition of "Natural, Organic and Eco-Friendly Pet Products in the U.S." covers historical and projected retail sales estimates from 2012 through 2021, competitive strategies of key players, and trends in new product development such as grain-free, grass-fed, superfood ingredients, human-grade, raw pet food (including freeze-dried and dehydrated), eco-friendly nonfood pet products, corporate sustainability initiatives, and retail channel trends.
