Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
“Pet Medications in the U.S.: Over-the-Counter and Prescription Remedies as Consumer Products, 3rd Edition,” a new report from market research publisher Packaged Facts, analyzes the market for prescription and over-the-counter medications for dogs and cats, with a particular focus on brand-name products used by consumers and on antiparasitics.
Areas covered include parasite prevention and control (flea, tick, heartworm, etc.), pain management (focusing on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), behavioral health, overweight/obesity, cognitive dysfunction, heart health, ear care and allergies. The report provides in-depth coverage of competitive trends, new product trends and marketing activity, and draws on insights from other reports in Packaged Facts’ extensive Pet Market Collection. Statistics provided include historical and projected market revenues, along with demographics and psychographics of pet med purchasers.
The information contained in this report was obtained from primary and secondary research. Primary research entailed informal interviews with leading manufacturers of pet medications and with other pet industry experts; attendance at the Global Pet Expo and Petfood Forum trade events from 2005 through 2013; consultations with pet product manufacturers and members of the trade; and an on-site examination of retail venues.
Sales estimates are based on published and estimated sales of major market participants; market size estimates from other sources appearing in the trade press; figures obtained through consultation with market participants; the performance of relevant retail venues; consumer usage rates for pet medications; rates of company and product entries into the market; and sales data from IRI for multi-outlet (MULO), which represents sales through U.S. supermarkets, drugstores, mass merchandisers (Walmart, Target, Kmart, and Shopko), Sam’s Club and BJ’s warehouse clubs, dollar stores excluding Dollar Tree, and military commissaries.
Our consumer analysis draws primarily on two sources:
- Simmons National Consumer Surveys for Spring 2014 through Spring 2013, from Experian Marketing Services. On an ongoing basis, Experian Marketing Services conducts booklet-based surveys of a large and random sample of consumers (approximately 25,000 for each 12-month survey compilation) who in aggregate represent a statistically accurate cross-section of the U.S. population.
- Data derived from a proprietary Packaged Facts online survey conducted in May-June 2013 and January 2014. These surveys had a sample of 2,000 U.S. respondents age 18 or over who in aggregate are Census representative on the primary demographic measures of gender, age bracket, race/ethnicity, geographic region, household income bracket, and presence of children in the household.
