April 18, 2023 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Dog Food Market Report by Product Type (Dry Dog Food, Dog Treats, Wet Dog Food), Pricing Type (Premium Products, Mass Products), Ingredient Type (Animal Derived, Plant Derived), Distribution Channel (Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Specialty Stores, Online, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global dog food market size reached US$ 69.7 Billion in 2023. Dog food refers to the food item that is specifically formulated and prepared for dogs to meet their nutritional needs. It is produced using meats, meat by-products, cereals, grains, vegetables, and preservatives. It is rich in essential nutrients, such as proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, fats, and water, required for the proper growth of dogs. It offers several health benefits, including boosting immunity, maintaining a healthy weight, improving life expectancy, reducing the risk of skin ailments and allergies, and minimizing digestive disorders. There are several types of dog food available on the market, including kibble, snacks, treats, wet canned food, and semi-moist food. Due to the rising humanization of pets, there has been a considerable rise in the demand for dog foods across the globe. 

Global Dog Food Market Trends:

The rising awareness regarding the dietary needs of dogs among pet owners is driving the global market. Moreover, the growing focus on pet health and nutrition and the rising dog ownership rates is contributing to the market. Besides, the growing prevalence of various health conditions among dogs is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In response to this, veterinarians are recommending low-calorie and value-added dog food products to enhance dogs' nutritional intake, thus propelling the demand for dog food across the globe. In line with this, several major companies are introducing products specific to the breed, age, and size of dogs in smaller, disposable, single-serve containers in order to offer convenience to both the pets and owners, which is influencing the demand. Along with this, several leading players are developing organic variants using ingredients that are grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics, which is creating a positive market outlook. The market is further driven by the initiatives taken by the governments of several countries to promote the use of safe and healthy ingredients to improve the overall wellness of dogs. Along with this, various non-governing agencies are heavily investing in the development of dog shelters for the well-being of stray dogs, further impacting the market favorably. Other factors, such as the rising popularity of social media and the advent of home delivery models, are also influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 102.1 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2% during 2024-2032.
