The paradigm shift from conventional dog food to healthier and more organic ingredients, the market for organic dog food is expanding. Fresh and custom-made dog food has greater sales potential than before. Additionally, treating dogs with allergies and intolerances is primarily successful with mono-protein dog food.

Market Dynamic


Throughout the forecast period, the pet food market is expected to be driven by rising demand for dog food and increased traction in the premium pet food category. Due to its simplicity in terms of storage and mess-free feeding of pets, dry food is experiencing rapid growth in demand when compared to other product rivals. This encourages urban shoppers to choose dry pet food more frequently.


Particularly in western markets, pet food is one of the food products that are most strictly controlled. Pet animal foods are rigorously inspected in developed markets at every stage, from the ingredients used in food preparation to sales and marketing. The high standards required for commercialization may be a significant barrier to the market’s expansion. Additionally, a barrier to the market’s growth may be some developing economies’ lesser acceptance of premium or expensive pet foods.


The idea of customized pet food products is gaining popularity in developed areas and is anticipated to do the same in emerging markets in the coming years. As pet owners become more aware of the food they are giving their pets, personalization of pet food items has a lot of potentials to increase tremendously.

A tremendous potential opportunity exists for brands or businesses that provide specially made and tailored food items for pet animals, as pet owners are leaning toward having better control over the components used in the manufacturing of pet food products. Additionally, there is a lot of opportunity for customized food products because some are effective in treating specific pet problems, like obesity.
