Published on Jan 03, 2019

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Saudi Arabia Dog Food Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the Saudi Arabia dog food market reached a value of US$ 28.2 Million in 2021. Dog food is an energy dense food specifically made to meet the water and nutritional requirements of a dog. It is prepared with agricultural and animal-feed grade ingredients including poultry, meat, seafood, feed grain byproducts, and added vitamins and minerals. Dog food helps in regulating digestion, repairing damaged cells, promoting immune system, improving metabolism, and reducing irritation caused by allergies and environmental conditions. Although, the climatic conditions in Saudi Arabia are unfavorable for dogs, the trend of dog ownership has gained momentum over the past few years, owing to which the dog food market has witnessed positive growth in the region.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
