Key Aspects Stimulating Demand for Pet Grooming Services

“Substantial Growth in Pet Ownership across the World”

It has been found that pet ownership has resulted in warding off depression and blood pressure, boosting immunity, and improving the social life of pet owners. This has resulted in a substantial rise in pet ownership worldwide. Also, post-COVID-19, the trend of pet adoption as a companion has grown drastically.

  • As per a survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) during 2021-2022, around 70% of U.S. households owned a pet during 2021-2022, a rise of 3% from 2019.

This is projected to result in a potential rise in consumer spending on pet care and grooming across the world. Pet ownership is observed to have a direct relation with consumer spending on pet care, supported by increasing consumer awareness about the same.

“Growing Popularity of Pet Grooming Service as a Profession”

Pet grooming these days is a common service that animal owners seek for their pets. Pet owners are spending more on these services to take care of their pets due to their busy lifestyles and hectic schedules. They appoint professionals with proper training to handle their pets or individuals who love animals and are interested in pet care.

This factor will create a lucrative opportunity for professionals who love pets and want to establish a small business related to pet grooming and caring. Pet grooming is a flexible and unruffled profession or business that could be operated on the run using a van or trailed equipment with grooming supplies and equipment.

Additionally, pet grooming services can offer substantial earnings to professionals, which will result in the expansion of the market.

  • According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for animal care workers in the retail industry, including groomers, is between US$ 18,000 to US$ 35,000 per month.

Factors Impeding Pet Grooming Services Market Expansion

“High Cost and Lack of Knowledge Associated with Pet Grooming Services”

Being an animal lover is not enough to be a successful pet groomer. A career as a pet groomer comes with certain challenges, including the requirement for high-quality supplies for different animals and breeds. Pet groomers require tables and tubs, brushes, and other accessories costing up to US$ 2K-5K, which may create a challenging scenario for start-ups and new businesses to enter the market.

The requirement of expertise and knowledge to handle several types of pets, breeds, and animal temperaments is another factor that may limit new market players without experience from entering the market. Also, the high cost of insurance to protect pets from injuries, if somehow the pet manages to escape and the grooming service provider is sued for negligence, is expected to hamper market growth over the coming years to some extent.

Category-wise Insights

Bathing & Brushing Services to Remain Most Demanded

Giving a bath and brushing the teeth of a pet at home is not enough to manage severe skin and infection issues that pets can face. They require professional cleaning with standardized shampoos, toothbrushes, and others, which will drive the demand for bathing & brushing services. Such services heal the coat & skin of pets along with getting rid of skin issues. Also, brushing enhances the dental health of pets.

Pets such as dogs and cats extensively require grooming services such as bathing and brushing to avoid fleas and associated infections. Frequent bathing, washing, and clipping of the pet's fur can reduce the chances of fleas. As such, the demand for bathing and brushing services is expected to remain high in the years ahead.

Market Driven by High Dog Ownership across the World

In comparison to other types of pets, dogs account for a higher population and have undergone more humanization, which is majorly driving the growth of the dogs segment. Additionally, pet dog grooming promotes a clean environment in the home and helps lower allergies caused by pets through the early detection of changes to their skin or body. In several instances, dog owners that brought their pets in for grooming, and while the groomers handled the animals, they saw abnormalities such as lumps or skin irritation of some kind.

Additionally, grooming reduces the likelihood that the pet will get fleas and mites and aids in the prevention of difficulties from routine nail trimming. Cleaning off the filth and extra oil that are clinging to a dog's skin and removing old hair and dead skin cells can all be accomplished by grooming. A dog's hygiene and odour may benefit from cleaning them up regularly and removing all the build-up that can lead to infections.
