This indicates 56% rise since 1988, the first year when the survey was conducted.

As per the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, ~6.5 million companion animals enter the countrywide animal shelters every year; however, the number has declined from ~7.2 million in 2011, which indicates an increase in animal adoption. Moreover, as per the European Pet Food Industry Federation (FEDIAF), cats remain the most popular pet in European households, with a population of 74.4 million. The popularity of dogs is growing as there were 66.4 million pet dogs in the EU (84.9 million in Europe and Russia) in 2017, compared to 63.7 million (82.2 million) in 2016. According to the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) Animal Wellbeing (PAW) Report 2019, 50% of the UK population owns a pet.

High Prevalence of Dental Diseases in Pets Contributes Significantly to Market Growth

Periodontal disease is the most common condition in cats and dogs. It is a progressive, cyclical inflammatory disease of the supporting structures of the teeth, which leads to dental disease and early tooth loss in dogs and cats. Further, these diseases can lead to serious health concerns such as organ failure. As per the AVMA, nearly 70% of cats and 80% of dogs develop some form of periodontal disease by the time they are three years old. The rise in the prevalence of various oral health-related diseases has been identified as the major driving factor for market growth.

Additionally, calculus, gingivitis, gum disease, and tooth fractures are among the common oral issues in pets. As per the DSM pet owner survey, only 16% of dog owners clean their pets’ teeth every day. This has led to the need for pet products that provide a complete approach to oral care such as dental treats, water additives, dental wipes, and breath fresheners. Also, regular vet check-ups and preventative home care can improve pet’s oral health.
