"Pet Products in Bulgaria" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Aug 26 2015

Pet products benefited strongly from growth in the number of vets in Bulgaria during the review period, with an estimated increase of 17% overall and 3% in 2014 over the previous year. There was also a shift from smaller independent vets to larger and more professional veterinary clinics housing a number of vets. Consumers are increasingly seeking advice from vets in order to ensure optimum health and happiness for their pets, rather than simply visiting vets in times of animal illness. This trend is proving particularly strong among young urban consumers in their 20s and 30s, with these consumers generally having a stronger interest in health issues in comparison to older consumers.

Competitive Landscape

A widening range of cat litter brands is becoming available in Bulgaria, with this likely to impact the share of "other" pet products player Mars in 2015. This company continued to lead sales in 2014 with a value share of 18% but lost over half a percentage point in share due to its Natusan brand facing stronger competition in cat litter. Mars will also continue to suffer due to its focus on "other" pet products, which saw the weakest current value sales growth in pet products in 2014 and is expected to see over half a percentage point decline in 2015.

Industry Prospects

"Other" pet products is expected to see strong price competition in the forecast period, as affordable products increasingly become available via supermarkets and hypermarkets. Internet retailing sales are also expected to grow as consumers seek bargains online. Consequently, while this product area is expected to see growing volume sales of accessories, toys and housing, it is also expected to see value decline at constant 2015 prices at 9%.
