Pet Boarding Services Market Analysis

The Pet Boarding Services Market size is estimated at USD 7.74 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 10.90 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 7.10% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The increased pet ownership during the COVID-19 pandemic among Millennials and Gen X has resulted in substantial growth in the pet services sector. In July 2023, a research paper published by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) stated that as of 2022, 70% of United States households owned a pet, up from 67% in 2021. Additionally, 14% of current or non-pet owners have added a new pet to their household since the pandemic. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, consumer spending on pet products and services rose by 9% in 2023, with pet food rising by 12.1%. The consumer spending on pet services and products is expected to fuel M&A activity as strategic and private equity acquirers compete to purchase high-growth, recession-resistant assets with loyal customer bases.

The growing expenditure for non-medical veterinary services in developed countries such as the United States further contributes to market growth. The increasing trend of humanizing pets has significantly impacted the pet boarding services market. Pet owners now consider their furry companions family members and seek accommodations that provide similar comfort and care. The rapid increase in non-medical veterinary service expenses has led to the rise of premium and personalized pet lodging services that cater to pet's unique needs and preferences. According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), the expenditure on pet services, such as boarding, was around USD 11.4 billion in 2022 and was projected to reach USD 11.8 Billion in 2023.

With the growth of pet-friendly travel and tourism, pet owners are looking for accommodations that allow them to explore new destinations with their pets. The growth of pet-friendly locations and activities has created opportunities for pet boarding facilities in popular tourist destinations, offering convenient and comfortable stays for pets and their owners. The increasing number of dual-income households has increased demand for pet boarding services. With busy work schedules and travel commitments, pet owners require reliable and trustworthy accommodations to ensure the well-being of their pets in their absence. The growing pet-friendly travel and tourism has fueled the growth of professional pet lodging facilities that provide pets with a safe and nurturing environment.

The aging pet population and pets with special needs require specific care and accommodations. The requirement for special care services for the aged population has led to the emergence of specialized pet lodging facilities that cater to the unique requirements of these pets, including mobility assistance, medical supervision, and personalized attention. The integration of technology in the pet lodging market is transforming the industry. From online booking platforms to mobile apps for real-time updates and communication, technological advancements have enhanced the convenience and experience for pet owners and facility operators.

Pet Boarding Services Market Trends

Dog Segment is Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period

The dog pet type segment dominated the market with the largest revenue share in 2023. The market's significant share of the dog pet type segment is attributed to the substantial adoption of these services for canine breeds, coupled with their growing population in developed countries. For instance, the United States was estimated to have about 97 million pet dogs in 2024, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), APPA. The increasing population of pet dogs in several vital countries is expected to contribute to the demand for short-term and long-term boarding services for dogs.

Dogs are the most favored pets among pet owners worldwide and are among the most familiar domestic pets. They are also listed as one of the friendliest pets owned by individuals and are usually depicted as man's best companions, offering their friendship and company to people. Grooming, training, and group play activities are essential for dogs, and they are expected to fuel demand for pet boarding services during the forecast period.

Therefore, the dog segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period due to the abovementioned factors.

Pet Boarding Services Market: Spending on Pets (in USD Billion), United States

North America is Expected to Dominate the Pet Boarding Services Market

North America is expected to dominate the market owing to factors such as the rising adoption of pets, growing pet care expenditures, and the availability of pet care service providers in the region. The United States pet boarding service market is projected to be foremost in the global market owing to the availability of advanced pet lodging services, the rapid surge in pet adoption rates, and increasing pet spending.

As per the National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) in 2022-2023, around 86.9 million homes, i.e., 66% of households in the United States, are estimated to own a pet. Moreover, around USD 136.8 billion was spent on pets in the United States in 2022, with USD 58.1 billion on foods and treats. This elevation in pet adoption is creating lucrative opportunities for the market players. Therefore, owing to the factors above, the growth of the studied market is anticipated in North America.

The United States witnessed intense growth in the pet industry in recent years. The pet owners also subscribe to pet insurance services to ensure the treatment costs associated with the pet's health. For instance, in 2023, as per the report published by Nationwide, pet ownership is on the rise in the United States. More than 90.5 million households have at least one pet, and 64% of pet owners are likely to purchase pet health insurance. As per the same source, about 3,000,000 claims are processed annually in the US, or 271,000 claims per month, with an average claim turnaround of 3 days. The boom in pet insurance services has resulted in a massive rise in owning a pet in the house with proper financial support. This, in turn, increases the demand for pet boarding services and expands the market growth rate.
