Natural Pet Care Ingredients to Meet a Growing Market Demand

Pet ownership is on the rise and so is the draw of natural pet care products, foods, and supplements. As a growing number of people look for natural and preventive approaches to caring for their own health challenges, they’re increasingly curious about natural solutions for their dogs and cats. The statistics are compelling:

  • According to the APPA National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of U.S. households owned a pet in 2011-2012, whereas only 56% did in 1988.1

  • Despite economic factors, pet supplement sales reached $923 million in 2007, increasing 8% from 2006.2

  • The natural pet market has continued to hold about a 5% annual growth according to Nutrition Business Journal.3

  • Market research firm Packaged Facts reports that there was more than $1 billion in retail sales of pet supplements and nutraceutical treats in 2010. The firm anticipates that this industry will be worth $2 billion by 2015.4

In response to this steadily growing market opportunity, Wilke Resources has partnered with ingredient manufacturers who provide pet-oriented versions of common human supplement ingredients. Our comprehensive selection covers ingredients appropriate for pet supplement products, pet foods, and dermal creams. Click on an ingredient below for more information:
