The global pet food market is estimated to record a CAGR of 5.11% during the forecast period of 2023-2030. The market growth is being driven by several key factors such as the growing inclination of consumers towards adopting dogs and increasing concerns about their health.

Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Aug. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the latest report published by Extrapolate, the Global Pet Food Market size is estimated to reach from USD 115.5 million in 2022 to USD 163.7 million by 2030, recording a CAGR of 5.11% from 2022 to 2030.

Key Insights

  • On the basis of animal type, the dog segment is likely to hold the largest market share in the near future

Market Segmentation

By Animal Type

  • Dog
  • Cat
  • Others

Increasing Preference for Dog Adoption to Foster Product Demand

The dog segment is anticipated to lead the global pet food market through the estimated timeframe. The segment growth is impelled by a rise in the adoption of dogs as domestic pets and rising household spending on nutritious dog food as a result of prevalent concerns among pet parents about the health of their dogs.

Given that dogs are a carnivorous species, the majority of their diet consists of meat. The desire for products with higher meat and lower starch content has been fueled by dogs' relatively low carbohydrate requirements, which is positively impacting the product landscape.

By Form

  • Dry
  • Wet
  • Semi-Moist

High Convenience to Make Dry Pet Food the Top Choice Among Pet Owners

The dry segment is likely to contribute to the largest share of the global pet food market revenue in the upcoming years as owners worldwide predominantly favor dry dog food due to several reasons. Firstly, it offers the advantage of supporting a dog's healthy oral system. Additionally, dry dog food is highly convenient and cost-effective when compared to other wet food options available in the market.

Moreover, dry pet food products have a longer shelf-life and do not require refrigeration or special storage facilities. The practice of free feeding is also facilitated by dry dog food. These factors are anticipated to drive the segment’s growth in the forthcoming years.
