Pet Food Ingredients Market Dynamics

Increasing Pet Adoption and Pet Care is Driving the Growth of the Global Pet Food Ingredients Market.

There is an increased number of pet adoption worldwide. For instance, the Pet Food Manufacturers Association estimates that since the epidemic commenced, 3.2 million families in the United Kingdom have added a pet, bringing the country's overall pet population to 34 million. The pet food ingredients industry is expanding due to increasing pet adoption. 

The increasing adoption in developed regions is creating a way to introduce premium quality pet food products, which in turn is increasing the pet food ingredients market demand. According to the Health for Animals Association, over 500 million families in the United States, European Union and China alone have over half a billion dogs and cats. In addition, in the U.S., 70 % of households owned a pet as of 2021, compared to 68 percent in 2016.

Growing Pet Premiumization and Demand for Best Quality Pet Products Driving Market Growth.

There is an immense increase in pet ownership worldwide. With growing pet ownership, people take good care of pets’ specific needs and requirements. Pet owners are becoming more aware of their nutritional needs, as different nourishment is required for various breeds and types of pets. Besides carbohydrates, protein foods are essential in pet food. All these factors drive the demand for quality pet food, increasing the demand for better quality pet food ingredients.

Numerous pet food producers offer products with various variations created to meet the demand for several breeds and pets. Pet foods from meat meals, fish meals and poultry meals are rich in animal protein. The humanization of pets and the premiumization of pet care in developed and emerging countries are driving the market growth of pet food ingredients. In 2021, ORIJEN premium pet foods introduced ORIJEN premium wet dog food. It is prepared with high-quality protein. 

Lack of Awareness Among Pet Owners Restraining the Pet Food Ingredients Market Growth.

Most pet owners try their best to meet all the requirements of their pets. Most pet owners are getting updated daily and working on improving their sources of food and other requirements of pets. On the other hand, a few people are unaware of the benefits of good quality pet food products. Others are still sticking to their traditional feeding methods and feeding them the regular diet missing out on better pet foods. 

The lack of awareness among most people and their disbelieves is causing them to miss the benefits of better pet foods with good pet food ingredients. The pet ingredients vendors do not force to conduct clinical trials to prove whether their ingredients provide good nutrition or not. It largely depends on the pet supplement brands to ensure their products are safe and their marketing claims are honest. Thus, a lack of regulations may hamper the market’s growth.
