Market key trends:
Growing pet adoption is a key trend fueling the pet insurance market growth.

In the UK, pet population has increased from 51 million to 73 million in the past 10 years. This rising pet ownership has increased the demand for medical care and insurance coverage for pets. Furthermore, growing expenditures on pet care and rising pet humanization is encouraging pet owners to invest in insurance for lifetime medical expenses and unplanned veterinary treatments of their pets. As awareness about pet wellness and preventive healthcare rises, pet insurance is expected to gain further momentum during the forecast period.
