Statistics from the Ministry of Finance of Taiwan also pointed out that sales of pet-related industries reached NTD$38.73 billion in 2022, with performance increasing by 46% in the past four years. Amid the trend of “pet parenting”, demands for pet supplies and related products have arisen accordingly.


You just can’t ignore the commercial opportunities from those little cute furbabies! The fact is, pet-related industry has surged by 46% in the past four years. This is a good time for brands to seek suitable Pet KOLs to promote related products and boost sales. With the exclusive AIE Database, AsiaKOL is ready to provide you with insight into Top Pet KOLs in 2023, as well as the most active KOLs in the social community. Read our article below and grab the opportunity right away!


1. The Reveal Of Top 20 Pet KOLs: Only Small Number Of KOLs Monopolize The Voice In The Community

The number of followers of every influencer in the Top 20 Pet KOLs list all has reached over 70,000. The overall proportion of pet micro-KOLs is relatively low, with up to 90% of the list being well-known KOLs with their own traffic. Besides, the Influence score of the Top 7 KOLs is as high as 5 points, and a small number of pet KOLs monopolize the voice in the community. Most of the KOLs on the list have Interaction scores at between 4 and 5. Hence, brands can cooperate with the KOLs with high Interaction scores in product promotion or live streaming, which will most likely achieve good results. It’s worth noting that over half of the content creators on the list are active in various fields, such as Funny and comedy, Food and drink, etc. This can benefit pet restaurants and brands when collaborating with KOLs for pet-related co-branded product launches. 


2. Active Fields Of The Top 20 Pet KOLs: 60% Of Them Cross The Line To Food, Fun and Profit-sharing Fields

Up to 65% of the most favorite 20 Pet KOLs choose to invest their content in different fields, while only 35% focus on the single pet field. They normally feature content about Food and drink, Gaming, Funny and comedy along with the original pet category. Some of the notable cases are YouTuber @Annie72127 cooperated with a restaurant to promote cuisines with lovely cat shapes; @Lady Flavor launched cat-related nutritional products and her cat food brand. 


On the other hand, Pet KOLs following the group buying and profit-sharing cooperation model account for a part of the proportion. For instance, @pei0608tw and @Fa-tiao usually open group-buying promotions for daily supplies. It’s worth the brands to consider alliance marketing with Pet KOLs when promoting products, using multiple channels to divert product traffic.


3. Social Platforms Of The Top 20 Pet KOLs: Facebook And Instagram As The Main Channels

Up to 75% of the Top 20 Pet KOLs invest their content on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube at the same time. The content forms are relatively diverse, ranging from graphics and text to audio and video, providing various channels for brands to expose their products. Among them, the platforms that Top 20 KOLs choose to focus on are Facebook and Instagram, as such, the two major social platforms are mainly basic channels for sharing pet pictures and texts. For instance, content creators featuring pet illustrations, such as @kesanitw, usually won’t run a YouTube channel, but only use Facebook and Instagram as their main platforms. Those who are active on YouTube will probably share more videos about interactions with pets, or records of their own life and travel experiences.


Looking at the average number of followers on the above three platforms, although the proportion of Top 20 Pet KOLs on YouTube is lower, their number of followers is actually equivalent to that of Facebook. With such a large follower base, Facebook and YouTube can be used as the main platforms for cooperation between brands and Pet KOLs. When running KOL marketing campaigns in the future, these two channels are suitable for diverting product traffic. On the other hand, the number of Pet KOLs’  followers on Instagram is small, which is not conducive to directly attaching product links. However, they can still place product links through Story to increase product exposure and interact with followers, so as to increase inquiries about the product.



4. Introduction To Top 3 Pet KOLs: Cats Take The Lead

In the Top 20 Pet KOLs ranking list, the top three include @fumeancats, @annie72127 and @corgimango.
