APPA Generational Report Volume 3

NEW!  APPA Generational Report - Volume 3

The APPA Generational Report - Volume 3 is the latest report by APPA that examines pet ownership by generation to identify trends, changes and new opportunities in the pet market.

With Millennials firmly established as the largest group of pet owners in the U.S., it is imperative to understand their behavior as pet parents and pet product consumers. In many ways Millennials are different from the pet owners who came before them. This understanding is key to the continued success of the pet industry. In addition, the current Survey affords a first look at Gen Z pet owners. With these individuals just beginning to establish themselves in adulthood, it will be very interesting to see if they follow in the footsteps of Millennials as pet owners or chart a different course.

Based on the 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey, the Generational Report analyzes all aspects of pet ownership by generation [Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, Baby Boomers and Builders].
