Cat Food Market insights

Pet Food Market insights

The global pet food market size was estimated at USD 103.3 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2024 to 2030. The demand for products is anticipated to be driven by growing consumer inclination toward the adoption of pets along with rising concerns regarding their health. Improvement in overall digestion and performance of pet animals owing to consumption of nutritious food is also likely to boost market growth in the forecast period. The pet food products that are available in the global market rarely vary. This, in turn, has prompted manufacturers to include multi-functional and innovative ingredients in their products to curb such similarity bias. Convenience is likely to play a vital role in driving this industry, given the increased popularity of prepared pet food. The other segment is organic pet food, a recent and growing trend in the market.

Increasing availability of organic products in a variety of flavors and the inclusion of essential ingredients such as probiotics and antioxidants are factors that are likely to induce a positive impact on global market growth. On the other hand, low product penetration owing to its slightly high price may restrain organic segment growth in the coming years as every household would not be able to purchase high-priced products.
