Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Agrolimen, Aller, Barking Heads and Meowing Heads, BHJ, Brazilian Pet Foods, CPF, Diamond Pet Foods, Inaba, Vitakraft, and Yantai China.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Good packaging can be instrumental in creating brand awareness and brand loyalty. According to the American Pet Product Manufacturers Association, pet owners look for newly packaged products. Three areas of packaging that are mostly catered to by the manufacturers of pet food are packaging shape, packaging closure, and packaging convenience.”

According to the report, the nutrient content in pet foods is a primary buying criterion. As pet owners prefer high-quality pet products, manufacturers are introducing pet foods with the appropriate amount of functional ingredients, such as essential amino acids, carbohydrates, linoleic acid, and fibers. Functional pet foods strengthen pets' immune systems and encourage healthy digestive systems. Consumers develop brand loyalty to products that contain the requisite nutrients for their pets.

Further, the report states that the increase in product recalls will hinder market growth.
