Insights into Segmentation Analysis

Dog Segment Dominates While Cat Segment Experiences Fastest Growth

The global pet care market saw significant growth in 2022, with the dog segment continuing to dominate the industry.

Dogs are highly popular pets due to their positive impact on reducing anxiety, stress, and depression, as well as encouraging exercise and boosting cardiovascular health.

However, the cat segment is expected to experience the fastest market growth in the coming years. This is due to the increasing number of cat owners worldwide, which is anticipated to drive the market forward.

Additionally, the rise in one-person households globally and the desire to own at least one pet also contribute to market growth.

Pet Food Retains Top Spot as Revenue Generator

The pet food segment remains the top revenue generator in the market, thanks to strong demand from pet owners for tasty and nutritious food products for their pets.

According to the European Pet Food Industry Association (FEDIAF), pet food sales in Europe reached 10.2 million tonnes and $27.7 billion in 2021.

The veterinary care segment is also expected to grow significantly due to the increase in awareness of health and hygiene among pet owners around the world.

The growth of pet veterinary practices in countries such as the US has also contributed to this expansion.

Offline Retail Stores Drive Revenue Generation

The expansion of infrastructure surrounding pet stores is expected to drive category growth and increase the consumption rate of pet products.

Meanwhile, the online stores segment is anticipated to see substantial growth during the projected period.

The rising demand for online subscription services for pet feeding products globally is expected to boost online product sales and contribute to segmental growth.
