DUBLIN , Dec. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Pet Treats and Chews in the U.S. - 4th Edition" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Within the gold-plated pet industry, pet treats and chews stand out as superstars, exceeding overall pet industry growth in 2020 and 2021. The market experienced a surge in demand over the course of the pandemic, with pet owners sticking close to home turning to treats as a way to interact with and pamper their pets.

New product trends in treats mirror those in the pet market overall, with health and wellness top-of-mind and sustainability, ingredient sourcing, and functional benefits all highly marketable selling points.

Also contributing to pet treats and chews' stellar sales growth is an increase in cat treat usage and price points, in synch with the industry-wide trend of premiumization.
