The functional pet food market was valued at $1,954.8 million in 2020, and is estimated to reach $4,676.1 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 8.8% from 2021 to 2030.
Functional pet food has rich source of nutrients, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. It is gaining significant traction among developing countries, owing to increasing pet humanization and rising disposable income. The concern regarding pet health has gained major importance since the last few years, owing to stringent government regulations and owners' love toward their pets. For instance, as per the Queensland Government, the owners are required to register their pets in some council areas and provide their pets with appropriate food, shelter, and total care. The government also ensures complete animal welfare to provide utmost care, love, and best possible quality of life to them. However, with rising disposable income of people, pet owners are capable of spending on nutritious and organic food to minimize the risk of any possible animal disease. Consumers are becoming more curious and conscious about the overall health of pets, which is expected to surge the demand for products that aim to promote better health, increase longevity, and prevent various diseases such as calming, hip & joint, and skin & coat problems.
Pet owners treat their cats, dogs, and other pet animals as their family members and this increase in pet humanization has witnessed growth toward consumers' preferences for natural & organic products and healthy ingredients. Therefore, it creates lucrative opportunity for niche manufacturers to offer organic, natural, and allergen-free products. In addition to natural products, innovation in specialty and premium cat food products would foster the market. Some of the popular premium products include Hill's Science Diet Senior Age Defying cat food, Purina Veterinary Diets' Hypoallergic Feline Formula cat food, and Hill's Prescription Diet Feline Thyroid Health cat food to promote dental and oral health.
However, lack of awareness regarding the concept of functional pet food and proper guidelines & suggestions regarding how to nourish pets, especially in developing countries, including India and China are considerably expected to hinder the growth of the functional pet food market during the forecast period. Furthermore, people from rural areas feed their pets with leftover meals, milk, and meat, which hampers the growth of the market
