Spot Pet Insurance Outpaces Industry Average & Celebrates 201% Annual Growth
Spot Pet Insurance, a top provider of pet insurance services, announces 201% growth in 2022, outpacing the industry average of 21.7% (NAPHIA, 2023). This upward trend highlights the growing need for extensive pet health coverage with flexible plan options in the US.
The United States pet insurance industry still has significant room for expansion when compared to its counterpart in the UK. While the UK has a well-established and mature pet insurance market, the United States has vast untapped potential. This opportunity for growth starts with the overall market penetration rate. In the UK 42% of pet parents have insurance coverage for their pets, whereas the US has a relatively low penetration rate of 2.80%. In 2022, only 5.36 million of 191 million pets in the US are insured (NAPHIA, 2023; IBIS World, 2023).
Trey Ferro, CEO of Spot Pet Insurance, is excited for the potential of the United States market, “if we can educate and empower pet parents about how pet insurance can really make a difference, we’ll open the doors to a massive market. It’s all about spreading the word and showing them why it’s worth it to protect their beloved pets.”
Spot’s marketing partnerships played a significant role in excelling the company’s growth. Partnering with Lyft Media, Spot reached New York City pet parents surrounding dog parks via digital cartop advertising displays. Spot collaborated with Cameo for Business to leverage A-list celebrity pet parents who reflected on experiences they’ve had with their pets and the impact pets have had on their lives. This digital campaign reached millions of pet parents across multiple channels to drive education and awareness of pet insurance. Through an exclusive partnership with Purina, a pet food industry leader, Spot reached a key audience of pet parents and offered a strategic partner discount of up to 10% to Purina subscribers. Following the success of these campaigns, Spot looks to further expand its digital marketing partnerships.
Spot’s growth in 2022 was further propelled by strategic collaborations with employer groups. Spot has had the distinct privilege of extending pet insurance as a benefit to organizations like Miami-Dade County and institutions like AAA and the Mayo Clinic. Through these partnerships, employees gained access to comprehensive information about Spot Pet Insurance’s extensive benefits and an exclusive discount of up to 20% on their pet insurance policies.
As Spot looks to achieve another remarkable year of growth in 2023, Ferro says, “We want to share our appreciation for our current Spot family members, and we are excited to welcome new pets to our family! Spot will continue to find innovative ways to improve the experience of our members while empowering them to create healthier and happier lives for their pets.” The future for Spot and the pet insurance industry as a whole is bright.
