Scope of Pet Food Market

Pet food is plant-based or animal-based food specially prepared and intended for consumption by pets. It is usually sold in pet stores and supermarkets and is usually specific to the type of animal, such as dog food or cat food. Most of the meat used for animals is a by-product of the human food industry and is not considered ""humane grade"". Pet food ingredients can be derived from animals and may include beef, pork, lamb, chicken, and fish or plant products such as corn, wheat, soy, sorghum, peas, potatoes, and barley. Vitamins, minerals, and amino acids can also be added to ensure all the right nutrients are available for the pet's needs.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a mixed impact on the growth of the global pet food market. Due to restrictions on the movement of raw materials, the pet food industry initially suffered in terms of supply and cash flow. On the other hand, demand for the pet food segment saw steady growth in many parts of the world as people adopted more pets amid the growing desire for companionship during the lockdown. To meet this demand, market players shifted their focus from retail stores to e-commerce platforms and increased their investment in developing their websites. And this led to a huge increase in demand from consumers as new sales methods were adopted in the market. It is likely to increase in the coming period as well.

Global Pet Food Market Dynamics: -

One of the major factors in the growth of the pet food market is the increasing trend of pet humanization. Pet humanization is poised to continue selling pet products and services. This ranges from physical services like grooming and daycare to e-commerce items like food and toys. Central to these trends is technology, especially in the post-pandemic environment. Pet humanization is becoming a globally accepted term in the pet industry as more pet owners are willing to give their pets human-like products or experiences. The rapid pace of economic and social change is driving pet food market trends. The new generation is becoming more isolated, and as a result, pets are treated as companions, leading to the growth of the market. According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), around 70% of US households owned a pet in 2021, equating to 90.5 million households. Additionally, the trend towards the humanization of pets has increased health awareness and created a demand for sugar free pet foods, grains, dyes, and other chemical additives. Thus, increasing pet humanization is expected to boost the pet food industry.

Moreover, the growing innovation by pet food manufacturers is also supplementing the pet food market's growth. Major players in the global market are focusing on launching various pet food products to cater to the needs of different types of animals of different age groups. In recent years, General Mills, Nestle, and Mars Inc. have launched premium food products to capture the attention of consumers and cater to growing pet needs. For instance, as per the news published on November 5th, 2020, Nestlé Purina launched pet foods based on alternative proteins to make better use of the planet's resources. The new line includes plant proteins from insects as well as fava beans and millet. On August 6, 2022, Mars Petcare brand IAMS announced the launch of its dry cat food products in India. The launch includes IAMS' Proactive Health cat food range, which includes three types and formulations for the specific health concerns of kittens and adult cats, including a unique formula developed for kittens and their mothers. IAMS's Proactive Health cat food is formulated with the help of veterinarians and boasts chicken as the first ingredient to give cats a protein boost. Therefore, many innovations in pet food promote the growth of the pet food market.

However, stringent regulations associated with pet food may hinder the growth of the global pet food market. Despite that, the growing pet population, coupled with the rising pet-owning trend, may create more opportunities in the global pet food market.

North America Holds a Major Share in the Global Pet Food Market:

Geographically, North America is holding a major share in the global pet food market within the forecast period due to the increasing disposable income, rising demand for pet food, and growing consumer awareness regarding the beneficial impact on pet health these factors boost the pet food market. Increasing disposable income is driving the growth of the pet food market. For instance, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the state's personal income will grow by 7.4 percent in 2021, up from 6.6 percent in 2020 in America. Therefore, increasing disposable income is expected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period. In addition, the rising demand for pet food is another factor supplementing the market growth in this region. For instance, as per the news published, on March 18th, 2021; Hill's Pet Nutrition has launched its successful weight management and active mobility pet food, a nutritional solution that is clinically proven to help dogs reach and maintain a healthy weight with added mobility support. Therefore, augmenting demand for pet food is intensifying the growth of the pet food market worldwide.

Europe is the fastest-growing region in the global pet food market due to the increasing pet population, rising demand for premium dog food and the presence of key players these factors boost the market. For instance, according to European Pet Food Federation (FEDIAF), in June 2022; an estimated 110.1 million cats & 89.9 million dogs were owned by households in 2020. Across the European Union, 24% of pet owners own at least one cat, while 25% of pet owners own at least one dog. Therefore, this factor is accelerating the growth of pet food market worldwide.
