The increase in selection of premium and superpremium pet products continues to drive advances in packaging for these products as marketers attempt to convey the quality of their products through development of premium packaging features and designs. Paper and multi-walled laminates are slowly giving way to plastic films for dry pet foods, the largest pet product segment. Metal cans continue to dominate sales for wet and moist pet foods even as the majority of new products have shifted to plastic trays, pouches, and chubs, signaling a slow shift from metal packaging. Stand-up pouches in particular are seeing strong growth in this segment as well as continuing to increase its lead as top packaging style for treats. Convenience and sustainability in the packaging of the pet products they purchase are top of mind for pet owners. Ease of use and good closure systems are the most important features of pet product packaging across all pet owners, while the importance of eco-friendly features to pet owners is much stronger with Millennials and Hispanics.
