Industry operators or players in pet insurance primarily compete with consumers who choose to self-fund pet medications and veterinary costs. However, with increasing availability of advanced technology and growing usage of veterinary services, costs are expected to increase. This increase in costs and with marketing efforts by players, the adoption of pet insurance has increased.
The market is growing as veterinary care is expensive and many owners cannot afford it; however, with insurance, they can claim around 90.0% of veterinary bills. Besides, rise in number of pet injuries and prevalence of diseases is also aiding growth. As per veterinary records, 2017, almost one in every three pets need urgent veterinary care every year. Furthermore, new strategies being undertaken by players are expected to aid further growth. For instance, MoreThan, a pet insurance company, in 2019, formed a partnership with PitPat, the dog activity monitor manufacturer, offering cash rewards of up to USD 112 to owners who exercised their pets regularly.
