Global Dog Food Market to Reach US$ 88.1 Billion by 2028, Propelled by Rising Awareness Regarding Dietary Requirements

February 16, 2022 | Food & Beverages

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Dog Food Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," finds that the global dog food market size reached US$ 66.4 Billion in 2022. Dog food refers to commercially prepared food intended for consumption by dogs to fulfill their nutritional requirements. It is generally manufactured using various plant- and animal-derived ingredients, including meats, meat byproducts, 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 also helps dogs fight off infections and perform daily activities while strengthening their teeth and bones. In recent years, dog food has gained immense traction among pet owners as it improves health and prevents medical conditions, such as kidney and heart-related diseases. 

Global Dog Food Market Trends:

The rising awareness regarding the dietary requirements of dogs among pet owners and the emerging trend of pet humanization represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the growing focus on pet health and nutrition and the surging dog ownership rates have augmented the product demand. Additionally, various non-governing agencies are making significant investments in the development of dog shelters where volunteers work toward improving the overall health and wellbeing of stray dogs. Along with this, the widespread prevalence of numerous health conditions in dogs, such as diabetes, arthritis, and high blood pressure, has encouraged the adoption of dog food. Furthermore, veterinarians have started recommending low-calorie and value-added dog food products to enhance nutrition intake. This, in turn, has prompted key players to launch organic and natural product variants suitable for every stage of a dog's life. Other factors, including the increasing product premiumization, rising consumer expenditure capacities, rapid urbanization, and easy product availability via e-commerce platforms, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 88.1 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 4.77% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
