Cat Food Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The global cat food market was worth US$ 31.6 Billion in 2018. The market is further projected to reach US$ 36.5 Billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 2.4% during 2019-2024. Cats represent one of the most popular companion pets worldwide as they are independent by nature and easy to keep in terms of care. Although owners usually feed their cats with milk and home-made food, the demand for specific food is increasing as it provides essential nutrients for maintaining the weight and energy requirements of the cats. In addition, commercially available cat food also helps in combating skin allergies and infections as well as improving the overall health and life expectancy of cats. On the other hand, the demand for premium cat food is rising among the owners of pedigree breeds which are often viewed as status symbols.
