Do you have any idea of the actual pet apparel market in US? I'm desperately searching for stats about that. The $43B market is divided in general in 4 major markets (as shown in your spreadsheet), but there's never any reference to the dog apparel market... Any idea of annual sales made by branded or licensed products such as Paris Hilton dog collections, Ralph Lauren for dogs, Barbie for dogs, Christian Audigier, Betty Boop etc... all these products hit the market through national retail stores, yet no figures on what this market could possible represent. How can they even launch a collection with no business plan whatsoever, since there's no estimate of the market?
Or at least do you know the number of so-called high-end pet boutiques in US? Any help would be very welcome, as my wife and I are trying to launch our own collection but are having difficulties with the banks to get financing because of lack of sales projections since we simply can't estimate the market...
many thanks in advance!
