Pet Food Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

The global food pet market will reach $56 million in 2015, according to a Global Industry Analyst report. Patterns vary internationally with cultural norms and economic conditions, but general trends toward lower birthrates, smaller families, and growing middle-class populations have revolutionized the attitudes and spending patterns of pet owners, especially in the pet food category.

By type of pet, pet food is generally classified into dog food, cat food, and other pet food. Dog and cat foods can be subdivided into dry packaged, wet/moist (usually in cans, but also in pouches), treats (which are increasingly functional or in positioning, rather than simply indulgent), and frozen/refrigerated (often with a focus on superpremium quality and product freshness).

Dog and cat foods, which account for the bulk of the pet food market, are also positioned among one of more of the several categories. These include active/outdoors, functional, gourmet, lifestage, natural/organic, premium, weight control and size/breed.’s extensive collection of research studies on the pet food market will provide the competitive analysis and perspectives you need geographically (global, regional, or national), by type of pet, by type or class of pet food and treats, and by key manufacturing and retailing issues such as ingredient and formulation trends, packaging innovation, and online retailing.
