Dog and Cat Toys: U.S. Pet Market Trends and Opportunities 2017 - Growth in Dog Toys Will Outpace Growth in Cat Toys in This Billion-Dollar Market - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Dog and Cat Toys: U.S. Pet Market Trends and Opportunities" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Dog and Cat Toys: U.S. Pet Market Trends and Opportunities provides an in-depth analysis of dog and cat toy sales through all channels in the U.S. market, focusing on the key categories of toys driving the market and highlighting sales trends.

The report covers sales of chew, plush, rubber, fetch, tug, and puzzle toys, as well as cat scratchers and cat stands, discussing the top marketers in each category. All information and analyses in the report is highly accessible, presented in concise text and easy-to-read and practical charts, tables, and graphs.

Continued humanization of pets, a growing preference for natural and eco-friendly toys among pet owners, more durable plush toys for dogs, and the propensity of pet owners with multiple cats to buy toys will be the primary drivers behind the growth in sales of dog and cat toys over the next five years. Growth in dog toys (at three-fourths of the total) will outpace growth in cat toys in this billion-dollar market. For cats toys, nonetheless, the Internet and supermarket channels are showing stronger growth in sales, helping to offset declining sales in the pet specialty channel.
