Pet food is specifically manufactured and intended for consumption by pets. It is commercially prepared from agricultural, animal-feed grade ingredients and nutritional supplements, which include cereals, vegetables, meat, seafood and feed grain by-products. Pet food is a rich source of nutrients that aid in better digestion, help strengthen immunity and improve the life expectancy of pets. Nowadays, pet owners prefer pet food that consists of high-quality ingredients with zero added additives and substantial health benefits.

Global Pet Food Market Trends: 

The global pet food market is primarily driven by the rapid humanization of pets across the globe. The growing awareness among pet owners regarding their pet health and nutritional intake is also propelling the market growth. In recent years, there has been a shift toward the trend of nuclear families, especially in developing nations, which has further boosted pet adoption in these regions. Besides this, the premiumization of pet foods is significantly influencing the sales of custom-made products. In addition to this, pet owners are nowadays opting for organic and natural pet food that is devoid of pesticides, preservatives and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Moreover, with a rising number of pet owners increasing expenditure on a variety of pet food items, there has been easy availability of a wide range of pet food via e-commerce platforms. These online retail channels offer enhanced convenience at a better price point, along with flexible return and exchange policies, thereby providing a positive impact on the market. Furthermore, governments across various countries are taking initiatives to promote the use of healthy and safe ingredients that improve the overall wellness of pets. They are also promoting the need for transparency in pet food ingredients, which is fueling the market growth. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
