prosper. "
Pete Scott, APPA
For more than 60 years, the American Pet Products
Association (APPA) has supported the pet products industry
through thick and thin. The association clocked
total pet industry sales at $123.6 billion in 2021, marking
two consecutive years of record-breaking sales for
this sector, despite impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic,
continued supply chain disruptions and economic
uncertainty. This growth is expected to continue, and
APPA stands poised to meet the changing needs of the
industry by providing its members with access to key
market research, consumer insights and networking
opportunities.
" At our core, we provide a wealth of services and programs
to help our members prosper, " said Pete Scott,
chief executive officer of APPA.
APPA has nearly 1,000 members spanning pet product
manufacturers, importers,
livestock suppliers and
other industry stakeholders. The association's biennial
National Pet Owners Survey is a key resource for the
industry, detailing consumer behavior and product consumption
data to help pet product companies, distributors
and retailers stay on top of the latest trends. APPA
also publishes a Generational Report, highlighting the
distinct purchasing behaviors and product sentiments
seen among pet owner cohorts, and launched a series of
COVID-19 Pulse Studies in 2020 to gauge the ongoing
impact of pandemic-era conditions on pet ownership
and purchasing behavior.
Aside from these recurring resources,
APPA is focused largely on fine-tuning
its annual Global Pet Expo tradeshow
to support the industry as it continues
to evolve and grow. Scott noted
his team expects an increase in
exhibitor and buyer attendance
for the 2023 show, slated from
March 22 to 24 in Orlando, Fla.

" Attendees can expect a larger show floor with expanded
specialty sections in Natural Pet, The Boutique
and What's New to meet increasing demand in these
trending product categories, " Scott added.
APPA is also invested in promoting responsible pet
ownership and the bond between humans and their
furry companions. This is evidenced in the association's
Pets Add Life (PAL) initiative, through which APPA is
promoting the joys of having pets with playful digital
ads and other consumer-facing content.
The association supports a number of other petfocused
initiatives through its APPA Gives Back program,
which provides funds and resources for the PAL
initiative, the Human Animal Bond Research Institute
(HABRI), Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation
(ARF), Pet Care Trust and Pets in the Classroom, the Pet
Advocacy Network and others.
" The pet industry is a bit unique in its willingness to
embrace different opinions, develop strong relationships
and partnerships, team up on likeminded ventures, and
step back to put advancing the lives of pets and those
who love and care for them first, " Scott said. " I am extremely
pleased to be a part of this growing, thriving
community and look forward to all that we will accomplish
together. "
Scott joined APPA in August with two decades of
leadership experience under his belt. Earlier in his career,
he served as chief operating officer of the North
American Veterinary Community, a role
that introduced
him to the pet industry.
" Many associations are struggling with the same issues
- driving member value, becoming digital-first
organizations, fostering strong cultures and becoming
more relevant throughout the year, " he said. " I am excited
that APPA's strategic plan prioritizes addressing these
key business areas, and I look forward to implementing
them soon. "
