UAE Dog Food Market to Grow at 5.4% During 2024-2032, Facilitated by Growing Pet Care Awareness Among Owners

July 16, 2019 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “UAE Dog Food Market Report by Product Type (Dry Food, Wet and Canned Food, Snacks and Treats), Ingredient (Animal Derivatives, Plant Derivatives, Cereals Derivatives, and Others), Distribution Channel (Convenience Stores, Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Online Stores, and Others) 2024-2032,” the UAE dog food market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2024-2032. Dog food refers to the energy-dense food that is formulated for pet dogs. They are prepared by the combination of numerous agricultural and animal feed-grade ingredients, such as meat, fish, cereals, feed grain by-products and vegetables, which are essential for meeting the dietary and nutritional requirements of dogs. They are especially rich in proteins, minerals, vitamins and carbohydrates. These commercialized products assist in boosting immunity, improving metabolism, regulating digestion and repairing damaged cells. Their regular consumption is also associated with reducing irritation caused by allergies or environmental conditions while assisting the pets in maintaining appropriate weight and a luscious coat.

UAE Dog Food Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the significant rise in dog ownership rates in the UAE over the past few years. This is further facilitated by the growing expatriate population and their increasing spending capabilities. Additionally, increasing pet care awareness among the owners and the rising trend of pet humanization have encouraged individuals to invest in good quality dog food. This has increased preference for premium product variants that are prepared with natural raw materials and flavorings. There has also been a growing demand for organic dog food products that are devoid of pesticides, preservatives and genetically modified (GM) food, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, numerous nonprofit organizations (NGOs) are organizing pet adoption drives in the UAE, which is anticipated to catalyze the demand for dog food. For instance, NGOs including Umm Al Quwain Stray Dogs Centre, PARA UAE, Ahmed’s Rescue and 38 Smiles collaboratively organized a dog adoption event in 2019 to find homes for dogs that were up for adoption. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the advent of multigrain, grain-free and gluten-free variants, and the growing popularity of internet retailing in the country.
