Convenience benefits related to dry organic and natural pet food are projected to drive the product demand. Unlike most conventional pet foods, organic and natural pet foods are being used on a large scale.


Growing dog food demand along with higher traction in the premium pet food segment is anticipated to drive the pet food market over the forecast period. Dry food is witnessing rapid growth in demand as compared to other product counterparts owing to its convenience in terms of storage and feeding pets without creating a mess.  This is positively influencing urban consumers to increasingly opt for dry pet food.


Canned food is more palatable to dogs and cats as this product type contains proteins, fats, and a few carbohydrates. Wet/canned pet food is easy to digest and thus limits the backyard cleaning activity to a minimal. The higher digestibility offered by wet food makes it preferable for cats and dogs with illnesses and those that are finicky eaters.


The rising trend of dog adoption as a companion for families is projected to propel the product demand. Particularly dogs are witnessing an upward trend in terms of the concept of humanization of pets. This has resulted in an increased number of people owning dogs and feeding them premium food. Furthermore, rapid urbanization is among the key factors driving the market.


According to recent estimates from the Pet Food Manufacturers Association, 3.2 million homes in the U.K. have adopted a pet since the outbreak began (Paley,2021). Pet-owning households presently number 17 million in the U.S. The previously stagnating levels of pet ownership in the last five years have risen to 57 percent in May 2021 (Mintel,2021).


Young people have accounted for a large portion of the increase in pet owners. Over half of new pandemic pet parents are between the ages of 16 and 34. Current pet owners are another important driver of pet purchase, with 42% of them getting a new pet since the lockdown. During COVID-19, 74 percent of pet owners said that their pet had benefited them with their mental health.
