Digital Pet Care Products and Services: E-Commerce and E-Connectivity—a first-edition Packaged Facts report—examines the market for digital pet care including products and services that rely on the internet and/or Bluetooth technology and computers and/or smartphones, encompassing e-commerce (pet food and non-food pet supplies purchased online via computer or smartphone), veterinary telemedicine health services, app-based non-medical pet services (primarily pet sitting/walking and boarding) à la Rover and Wag!, and digitally connected products including pet trackers/monitors, automatic feeders/waterers, and litter boxes.
Factoring in thoroughly the current and expected impact of the pandemic, the report analyzes industry trends, projects future market directions, and pinpoints myriad opportunities, including the COVID-19-spurred pet adoption surge, the acceleration of pet owners online, the efforts of e-tailers and brick-and-mortar-based retailers to adapt to and capitalize on the online boom, the sudden urgency among veterinarians and veterinary back-office service providers to integrate telehealth services including telemedicine and teletriage, the ups and downs of app-based pet sitting services, and the interlinked and growing role of e-connected products to facilitate pet care tasks and provide increasingly sophisticated levels of pet monitoring.
