Market Overview:

The UAE cat food market size reached US$ 43.1 Million in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 67.3 Million by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 8.04% during 2022-2027.

As a result of the increasing number of nuclear families and growing expatriate population, the pet adoption rates in the UAE have escalated in recent years. Since cats are considered pious and cleaner according to Islam, they have emerged as the most popular pet species in the country. Moreover, in order to uplift their social status and image, the affluent Emiratis are opting for expensive and exotic cat breeds. A consequent rise in the consciousness regarding the health management of the pets has increased the demand for high-quality cat food which contains all the essential minerals, carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins. In line with this, manufacturers are introducing premium products for different cat species and age groups. 

UAE Cat Food Industry Drivers/Constraints:

One of the major cat food market trends is the emergence of one-person households which has prompted individuals to seek low-maintenance pets, such as cats.

Apart from this, various restaurants, residential buildings and other public spaces have started allowing the entry of cats with their owners. Moreover, regular offers by cat food retailers coupled with the growing trend of online retail formats has further provided impetus to the market growth.
