Who’s Your Audience: Pets (and Their Owners)

2 Min Read

Did you know 70% of U.S. households (90.5 million homes) owned a pet as of 2022? Not surprised, since man’s best friend is considered more than just a pet but a family member. The global pet market is worth $261 billion, and by the end of 2022, US pet owners will spend close to $109.6 billion on their pandemic puppies. A Statista survey conducted at the start of this year revealed the generational breakdown of pet owners (or shall we say, pawrents), with Millennials taking the lead (32%), followed by Baby Boomers (27%) and thirdly Generation Xers (24%).

While we can’t promise you cute puppy memes in this post, we can promise that as a marketer, you definitely have your pick of the litter when it comes to audience targeting and segmentation.
