1750 2100 1375

Pet care saw higher retail volume and current value growth in 2020 than earlier in the review period. The increase in growth was caused by COVID-19 social distancing precautions and remote working and schooling during the first months of the year, as people spent more time at home and interacted more with their pets, creating tighter connections....

Whilst the pandemic has led to a rise in dog and cat ownership, there has been little change to bird, fish and small mammal ownership in recent years. Dogs and cats have been sought out because of the companionship they provide, which has been much needed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Birds, fish and small mammals often require more equipment...

The other pet population saw a strong boost in 2021 as more time was spent as home during the pandemic.

Comparatively, cats and dogs are still the...

The main hinderance to the growth of other pet food in Ireland has been the stagnation seen within the pet population of small mammals, reptiles, fish and birds. While the dog and cat populations saw a sharp rise during the pandemic, this was not the case for the other pet population. This was largely because most people preferred to have...

There was strongly boosted interest in buying or adopting small mammals during the lockdown of 2020 as consumers with young children purchased hamsters, furry dwarf rabbits, or guinea pigs to keep them amused. Such animals are relatively undemanding as well as cuddly and easy for children to handle. Last year, the small mammal population continued...

Bird and fish ownership continues to see steady growth in 2022; however, growth is not at the same rate as being seen in the ownership of cats and dogs. Nonetheless, the other pet population was positively impacted by the home seclusion arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The bird, fish and small mammal/reptile populations jumped in 2020 amid...

Danish pet food producer Natural Brande A/S, which is present in all pet food categories with its Arion brand, decided to withdraw from fish food sales in 2021.

Other pet food has not been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The negative financial consequences of the COVID-19 crisis did not affect demand for products in other pet food, as households which already own fish, birds, small mammals or reptiles tend to rely on packaged other pet food to feed their pets. Owners of cats and dogs,...

The pet populations of small mammals, reptiles, fish and birds, have remained relatively steady over the last 12 months, with slight increases for all categories except for fish and birds who continue to decline.

Although other pet food saw volume growth in 2020, in 2021 it turned to slight decline, a trend which is set to continue in 2022. The lift in volume sales in 2020 resulted from the rare jump in the small mammal population, which saw positive growth for the first time for several years, with many consumers feeling as though a rabbit or guinea...
