U.S. Pet Market Outlook 2012-2013
In the new era of economic moderation, pet industry players must walk a line between promotional pricing and product "premiumization". While shoppers remain intently focused on value, many indicators suggest that the US pet market has not yet fully come into its own. Notwithstanding the great recession, the pet product shopper base has continued to migrate into the higher-priced pet specialty channel, while supermarkets and discount stores have seen their pet product shopper base decline. Store brands are more important than ever, but pet food remains private-label resistant, an outpost of shopper loyalty to national brands. Natural, organic, and eco-friendly products continue to advance, as do pet health products and services including medications, supplements, and insurance. And 2011 was nothing less than a banner year for mid-level acquisitions. During Super Bowl XLVI, dogs featured prominently in commercials that were not even pet related: ads selling cars, beer, and chips. This research sees "pet parenting" and the ensconcement of pets as members of the family not just as a trend, but as a long-term societal shift favoring even greater spending on the pet market in the years to come.

The report contains dozens of numerical tables and charts, as well as numerous photographs of new products and in-store promotional and merchandising initiatives across key channels.

Antioxidant Products in the US: Foods, Beverages, Supplements and Personal Care
Antioxidants are found in a diversity of consumer packaged goods, from fruit juices to deodorant, but reflect an overall metatrend whereby the link between dietary supplements and actual diets is becoming ever stronger. American consumers not only approach foods and beverages from a nutritional supplementation perspective, but also have come to regard health and beauty products as extensions of the foods they eat and the nutritional supplements they take. What has emerged is a continuum of nutrient-positioned products extending from whole foods into fortified/functional foods and through to nutritional supplements and personal care products.

For this reason, Packaged Facts' Antioxidants Products in the U.S.: Foods, Beverages, Supplements, and Personal Care sees tremendous growth potential for antioxidant product marketers over the next ten years. Antioxidants Products in the US: Foods, Beverages, Supplements, and Personal Care paints the big picture of the antioxidant products market for manufacturers, marketers, retailers, and industry analysts. Most importantly, the report anchors antioxidant product potential in broader consumer packaged goods market and societal contexts, as well as in the rapidly transforming bricks-and-mortar and Internet retail scene. This perspective is supported by data presented in clearly organized tables and charts.
