Global Pet Food Processing Market: Segments

Dry food segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Global Pet Food Processing Market is segmented by product into Dry Food, Wet Food, Nutritious Food, Snacks, and Others. Dry food segment held the largest market share in the year 2020. Dry food helps dogs maintain good oral hygiene by eliminating plaque and reducing tartar accumulation on their teeth. Furthermore, this product type provides the crunch and chewing that animals need to preserve their overall health. Dry food does not need the same amount of freezing as canned food. The high moisture content of this product category helps to keep pets hydrated while also being helpful to the urinary tract. However, the high price of the product, especially meat-based protein canned food, could limit consumer preference, limiting segment growth over the forecast period.

The trend of owning multiple cats is continuing to develop, resulting in increased product demand. In comparison to dogs, cats need less training and can spend more time alone. Furthermore, the expense of owning a cat is comparatively low as compared to that of owning a dog.
