Pet & Animal Care – Coverage Report October 2020

Capstone Partners has released its Pet & Animal Care update, available for download below.

The coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown has translated into increased time at home with pets and an acceleration in pet humanization trends. With favorable pet humanization, e-commerce, and ownership trends, the space is likely to continue to foster heightened interest among private equity and strategic buyers, alike. Attractive acquisition targets have displayed strong omnichannel sales capabilities, health and safety-centric products, and brand recognition.

Report highlights include:

  • Pet humanization accelerates during COVID-19 as owners spend more time at home
  • Pet adoption by millennials drives increased demand for products, especially through e-commerce channels
  • Private equity buyers have accounted for 51% of deal activity, showcasing their attraction to the industry and its positive long-term growth prospects
