The Global Pet Clothing Market Size is Expected to Reach

New York, Sept. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — announces the release of the report “Global Pet Clothing Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Distribution Channel, By Product Type, By Pet Owner, By Pet Type, by Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028” –
Pet clothing includes clothing that provides extra warmth and protects dogs from extremes.

Some typical examples of pet clothing are jackets, sweaters, knitwear, hoodies, shirts, hats and ties, raincoats, and swimwear. Most of the pet clothing available is designed for small dogs. Small dogs naturally have very fine coats and tend to catch colds in cooler or wetter conditions. Warmth from pet clothing, such as a raincoat, jacket, or sweater, can keep dogs from shivering when walking.

With the fame of these clothes, they are now also available for large dogs and cats. Nowadays, pet owners like to dress up their pets in clothes to make them stand out from other pets and look fashionable. This practice also helps pet owners improve their social position in society. While some outfits, like a pet tuxedo or costume, are purely whimsical and decorative, other accessories, like raincoats and sweaters, are more useful.

All sizes of dogs can find coats and sweaters, and some knitters like to make dog sweaters by hand. Small, short-haired dog breeds, such as Chihuahuas and Dachshunds, are especially popular for sweaters and coats. Similarly, cat owners also like to dress up their pets in sweaters. To meet customer demands, manufacturers are launching products with distinctive designs, characters, sizes, colors and patterns. For example, producers have launched some of the best-known franchises and characters, including Batman, Wonder Woman, Mickey Mouse, Jurassic World, Ghostbusters, and more.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The demand for pet clothing has declined as pet owners focus more on pet food and other necessities. Even with the pandemic’s labor and supply chain constraints, some pet products are seeing sales in the apparel industry. With the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a growing need for pet supplies including beds, carriers, and toys. People have been motivated to adopt pets by concerns about business closures and employer-issued instructions to stay home. As a result, companies in the pet clothing industry have seized this opportunity to increase their capacity to produce durable pet goods.

Market Growth Factors

Growing awareness of pet health among pet owners

As animals grow, their age and health issues also necessitate the use of clothing. The immune system of animals deteriorates when they get sick. Therefore, wearing clothes can keep them healthy. It is necessary to find suitable clothes for dogs, such as sweaters, because, for example, hypothermia is a widespread disease in dogs. In addition, some animals have delicate skin, especially after a haircut. As a result, they will face more environmental hazards. Thus, the clothes can protect them from the sun’s rays and other dangers. Pets are also more sensitive to the cold in winter, especially younger and older ones. In winter, it can be difficult for these vulnerable animals to produce adequate body heat.

Growing demand for recycled fabrics for pet wipes

Reusing bags, placing paper, plastic and metal in a recycling bin or carrying recycled products are all examples of recycling, which is one of the most sustainable lifestyle choices. Recycling has even entered the realm of haute couture. With so many celebrities also launching their recyclable clothing lines, it’s no wonder the pet clothing industry is making use of them as well. The use of recycled plastics for clothing such as padded vests and raincoats is gaining popularity among pet owners. The growing trend of pet owners buying clothes made from recycled or plant-based materials, such as cotton and hemp, is also driving demand for durable goods.

Market restraining factors

Allergic reactions caused by irritating and uncomfortable fabrics

Allergies can be caused by the materials used in the pet’s clothing. In addition, it could cause inflammation and itching. Some poor quality fabrics create more trouble for pets than comfort. Rubbing the cloth against the pet’s skin can lead to skin conditions, allergies and flaking. It becomes important to keep an eye out for any symptoms of allergic reaction in pets. Itching, scratching, or discomfort that causes them to try to change are examples of some noticeable symptoms. Pet owners who always dress their pets tend to ignore some surface issues with their pets’ physique.

Product Type Outlook

Based on product type, the pet apparel market is categorized into shirts & tops, coats & jackets, sweaters & hoodies, and others. The coats and jackets segment recorded a major revenue share in the pet clothing market in 2021. Flexibility is a key factor in designing the best pet coats and jackets. They have elastic fabric and chest and neck straps that can be adjusted to provide a snug yet comfortable fit. A coat will fit a variety of pet types the better, the more adaptable it is. The brand should ideally offer comprehensive size charts and a wide variety of sizes.

Pet Type Prospects

On the basis of pet type, the pet clothing market is segmented into dogs, cats and others. The cat segment generated a substantial revenue share in the pet clothing market in 2021. Cats help their owners feel better emotionally and they uplift their spirits. These animals are also known to promote socialization in the elderly. They also help people with physical or mental disabilities to be friendly. In approximately 40 million American homes, cats are kept as pets.

Distribution Channel Insights

Based on the distribution channel, the pet clothing market is divided into offline and online. The offline segment dominated the pet clothing market with the largest revenue share in 2021. Most of the neighborhood pet accessory stores are still preferred by their regular customers. Many supermarkets and hypermarkets have also started selling and displaying pet products. Specialty pet accessory stores selling handmade jackets and hoodies have also brought some growth to this segment.

Pet Owner Perspectives

Based on pet owner, the pet clothing market is categorized into Gen X, Millennial, Baby Boomer, Gen Z, and others. The millennial segment dominated the pet apparel market with the highest revenue share in 2021. People born between 1981 and 1996 are known as millennials and currently make up the largest segment of pet owners around the world. The American Pet Product Association (APPA) estimates that about one-third of pet owners in the United States are millennials.

The North America segment has acquired the largest revenue share in the pet apparel market in 2021.
