Industry Prospects

Urbanisation and hectic lifestyles will bolster the need for companionship among urban dwellers over the forecast period. According to Euromonitor International Countries & Consumers data, the average age of women giving birth to their first child is expected to rise by 1.7 years from 2009 to 2019, and a similar trend will also be seen in the average age of a woman getting married for the first time. The first is a small but peculiar trend wherein young women are choosing dog motherhood instead of babies. This is expected to continue over the forecast period. On the macro level, the humanisation trend is expected to drive overall growth.
