Dry Pet Food Production - Industry Market Research Report

Dry Pet Food Production

The Dry Pet Food Production industry has fared well over the past five years. Pet ownership and disposable income are forecast to rise over the five-year period. Growth of these key industry drivers has coincided with a growing tendency for consumers to treat their pets as members of the family, encouraging owners to not only spend more on dry pet food, but to increasingly purchase premium-priced specialty pet food products. Pet ownership is projected to continue to grow over the next five years, partly driven by rising disposable income, which will enable more consumers to afford owning and caring for pets. In order to keep pace with rising consumer demand, industry operators are expected to continue to develop and market formulas that boast advanced benefits for pets, which command premium margins.

This industry manufactures dry dog and cat foods, which are generally grain and oilseed based.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
