U.S. Pet Daycare Market Size is Expected to Experience a CAGR of 6.8% till 2030

The U.S. Pet Daycare Market size is anticipated to reach USD 2.02 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a significant CAGR of 6.8% from 2022 to 2030. The key factors driving the market growth include an increasing number of pet owners and spending on pets. For instance, in 2021, Americans spent around USD 123.6 billion on pets according to the American Pet Products Association. This number was notably greater than expenditure in 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the market growth, due to the movement restrictions leading to temporary closures of pet daycare centers while pet parents working from home led to low demand for daycare services. At the start of the pandemic, key service providers witnessed a significant drop in appointments and payment volume. For instance, Rover, a pet-care start-up, laid off 41% of its employees just weeks after the lockdown began. This was due to the economic impact and uncertainty affecting its pet sitting business among others due to the pandemic. The company put 9% of staff on standby. Despite the low demand, the company continued to offer pet sitting services while adhering to social distancing and stay-at-home mandates.

With the number of COVID-19 cases declining and more individuals getting vaccinated, many companies are requiring employees to return to work. As pet parents return to work from office, the need for pet daycare services is anticipated to propel the market growth. As per a 2021 survey conducted by MetLife Services and Solutions, LLC, 38% of working pet owners planned to hire additional help, such as a pet sitter or pet daycare to combat potential issues arising from return to in-person work conditions. Thus, the aforementioned factors are expected to drive market growth. The increase in the number of pet owners, pet humanization, and expenditure on pets are other key factors fueling the growth of the pet services industry, including pet daycare.
