Pet Travel Accessories Market

Pet travel accessories are specialized products created for pets that are used while traveling in automobiles, trains, planes, and ships. Pet travel accessories ensure the pet's safety and comfort during extended journeys. Pet travel accessories include a pet car seat, pet travel leash & harness, pet carrier backpack, and others. Products such as pet car seats are designed to protect animals from slipping and getting hurt, while also protecting the interior of the car from dirt, debris, rain, snow, or other elements. Pet car seats allow the pets to travel in the car without any hassle. They have been designed to keep the pet safe & secure while driving.

Growth in the trend of owning companion animals such as dogs, cats, and other small animals such as mice, rabbits, and others is gaining more popularity than before due to factors such as physical & mental health-related benefits and improved social status. Owning a pet can reduce stress, boost confidence, keeps the heart healthy, and help control blood pressure & cholesterol levels, which are scientifically proven facts that encourage people to own pets. Furthermore, rise in the trend of pet humanization, rapid urbanization, shift toward nuclear families, increase in disposable income, and surge in awareness related to the health benefits of owning pets are other factors that result in rise in pet adoption. Hence, increase in the adoption of pets is a vital factor that increases the requirement for pet travel accessories as pet owners are preferring to travel with their pets. Increase in the practice of traveling with pets is boosting the growth of pet travel accessories market.

The effect of COVID-19 led to a partial or complete shutdown of production facilities that do not come under essential goods, owing to prolonged lockdowns in major countries, such as the U.S., China, Japan, India, and Germany. It has resulted in the closure or suspension of production activity in the majority of pet products industrial units globally. The global travel accessories industry was already developing rapidly before the COVID-19 pandemic, however, COVID-19 ramifications have impeded this expansion as the travel industry had come to a halt, which has eradicated the requirement for purchasing pet travel products. It is anticipated the market will grow exponentially in the upcoming years as consumers will be eager to travel during the post-COVID period. Thus, increase in pet adoption during the pandemic is further a driving factor for the pet travel accessories market.

Pet safety is one of the most important aspects that a pet owner must regulate to keep their pet safe & healthy. There are many laws passed by the government of developed nations for the safety of the pets, such as The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (POCTA) Act, and pet owners must follow it compulsorily. The laws include cruelty prevention toward pet animals, focus on pet safety, and no discrimination among pets. Pet care product companies have come up with many safety products for pets, including pet car seat, pet harness, pet leash, and others which are made with good quality material and are long-lasting. As a result, increase in public knowledge of pet safety rules increases the pet travel accessories market demand, particularly in developed nations of Europe and North America. People frequently bring their pets with them on outings; thus, it is essential to consider the pet's safety & comfort. As a result, they choose to use high-quality travel accessories, which assures the safety of the pets. Government rules governing pet safety have made it mandatory for pet owners to provide proper care for their pets.

Pets such as puppies and kittens are more likely to die during the first three weeks following birth. According to the Nordic Committee for Veterinary Scientific Cooperation, 64% of puppies die during the first three days of life. According to same research, around 7% of kittens are stillborn (die at birth) and 9% die during the first 8 weeks of life, where hypothermia, hypoglycemia, dehydration, and hypoxia are the leading causes of mortality. These death rates may have an impact on the pet travel accessories industry. Pet travel items are most commonly used for dogs and cats. As a result, the birth & mortality rates of puppies & kittens have a direct impact on the pet travel accessories business. The greater the number of pups and kittens, the greater the revenue from pet care product sales. Thus, the high pet death rates may impede the growth of the global pet travel accessories market to some extent.
