This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the animal care industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is in a state of sluggish growth. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. Many economists expect that this sluggish growth will continue for a significant period of time, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period. However, animal care businesses operate with great economic stability as people who need to travel will continue to require kenneling services for their animals.

The independent animal care industry consists of 8,100 businesses that operate throughout the United States. As of the last economic census, the annual revenues generated by the industry exceeds $1.5 billion per year. The industry also employs more than 33,700 people.

The ancillary pet care service market is a mature industry, and Management expects that continued growth of the industry mirror that of the US economy in general.
