Pet Food Market Share, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Product Type (Veterinary Diets, Dry Pet Food, Treats and Snacks, Wet Pet Food), By Animal Type (Cat, Dog, Others), By Region and Forecasts, 2021-2028

Newark, NJ, Aug. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global pet food market is expected to grow from USD 78.61 billion in 2020 to USD 111.27 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.44 % during the forecast period 2021-2028

Certain factors are boosting the growth of the global pet food market. Some of them include the increased awareness about pet health, the accelerating adoption rate of pets, increasing demand for organic and premium pet food, and rapid humanization of pets. In addition, the growing disposable income of the middle-class population has led to a surge in the total spending capacity on pets.  However, increased demand for animal-based products in humans stimulates market demand. The essential driver of increasing growth in the pet food market is the increase in the number of pets. Pet ownership continues to grow in popularity across most emerging and developed markets, with a rising number of owners feeding processed foods to their pets instead of table scraps/leftovers.  Moreover, the significant shift in consumers' choice to opt for grain-free and vegan pet food products will further strengthen the market's demand.

Pet food is referred to as any commercial feed that is made and distributed for use by pets. It is usually specific to animals such as cat food, dog food, and other pet animals. The shelf life of fresh pet foods is more inferior to that of processed pet foods. Leftovers from the human industry may also be used in the products through a process called rendering. However, brewer's rice is most commonly used in pet foods because of the lower cost. Otherwise, flour, whole-grain rice, or bran can be evenly used. Also, they help in enhancing dental hygiene, improving digestion, and promote a more robust immune system.

The global pet food market is expected to witness significant growth due to the rise in pet ownership and the increase in pet food expenditure worldwide. Moreover, pet food products include chicken meals, vegetables, lamb meat, fruits, and other preservatives, which help in enhancing the texture, flavor, and color of the food items. All these factors will inspire pet owners to opt for pet food products in the coming years. Another factor that is forecasted to drive the market is the key market players are focusing on the launch of a type of food product for pets to address the requirements of different kinds of animals belonging to other age groups. The factor restraining market growth is the stringent rules & regulations and the enhanced demand for fresh foods instead of organic pet foods & packaged foods. The challenge of the market growth is the capital investments for equipment. Lending equipment or contract production needs less capital investment and withdraws yearly resource prices, which rental companies acquire. However, capital investments are one-time investments that are generally accounted for in the long run. The easy availability of pet products across different platforms such as online stores, supermarkets, and retail shops will further create numerous opportunities for market growth.


Key players operating in the pet food market include The J.M. Smucker Company, The Hartz Mountain Corporation, Hill's Pet Nutrition, Inc, Mars Incorporated, Lupus Alimentos, Nestlé Purina, Blue Buffalo Pet Products, Inc, Diamond Pet Foods, WellPet LLC, and Total Alimentos SA. To gain a significant market share in the global pet food market, the key players are now focusing on adopting product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships. Blue Buffalo Pet Products, Inc and Scout & Zoe's are vital manufacturers operating in the pet food market.

The innovations are expected to enhance the company's market share in the region in the coming years.
