GCC Cat Food Market to Reach US$ 161.6 Million by 2028, Impelled by Increasing Trends of Pet Humanization

May 01, 2023 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­GCC Cat Food Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the GCC cat food market size reached US$ 110.0 Million in 2022. Cat foods are specialty foods formulated for the dietary needs of cats. It is typically a blend of animal-based proteins, fats, amino acids, and carbohydrates, along with added vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients necessary for feline health. In addition to its nutritional benefits, cat food can also help prevent dental issues and hairball formation. Cat food is available in both wet and dry forms and can be purchased commercially or prepared at home. Commercially produced cat food is usually classified according to its ingredients, nutritional value, quality, and intended purpose. Apart from this, some brands are also introducing cat food that caters to specific dietary restrictions or food allergies. 

GCC Cat Food Market Trends:

The surging demand for cat food can be attributed to the higher cat population compared to dogs in the GCC region, as many households consider cats sacred and prefer them as pets. Moreover, rising trends of pet humanization in the region have led to increased awareness about pets' health and nutrition, resulting in a higher demand for cat food to meet their nutritional requirements, which, in turn, is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. In line with this, the rising demand for high-quality cat food for promoting a healthy lifestyle and improving a cat's overall quality of life is creating a favorable outlook for the market. In addition to this, the shifting preference for commercial cat food over home-cooked options due to its numerous benefits, such as maintaining weight and energy levels, and preventing infections and allergies, is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the introduction of innovative product variants, such as organic, grain-free, and high-protein cat food, and the easy product availability through numerous offline and online retail channels are aiding in market expansion. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 161.6 Million by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 6.54% during 2023-2028.
