PPC Tips Written by 1

While there are many ways to make money online, some niches don’t seem to get the attention they deserve. With dating, weight loss and business opportunities always at the main front for successful offers to promote, most of us forget about the pet industry. Did you know that pet food, supplies and medical spending is now over $50 BILLION a year! It’s quite amazing, and the best part is, that growth isn’t going to be slowing down any time soon.

How about some mind blowing stats to get your entrepreneurial taste buds wet? Here are some mind blowing facts from a recent American Pet Products Association report.

  • According to the 2011-2012 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 72.9 millions homes
  • In 1988, the first year the survey was conducted, 56% of U.S. households owned a pet as compared to 62% in 2008

Looking for an idea of how annual spending on our four legged friends breaks down by year? Here you go. Look at the huge increase from 1994 to 2011.

  • 2011 – $50.84 Billion
  • 2010 – $48.35 Billion

  • 2005 – $36.30 Billion
  • 2000 – $28.50 Billion

    Can’t wait to see where the pet industry goes – always curious to see if pet insurance will take off in the US. I don’t think it’ll be as popular as it is in the UK but it’s definitely an up-and-coming niche. Looking forward to your next post.
