Pet food market trends

The pet food markets markets are characterized by a high degree of sophistication, consumer awareness and ingredient consciousness. The trends of pet ‘humanization’ and ‘premiumization’ are popular. Pets are seen as almost human companions and are cared for in a similar manner. Pet nutrition is believed to play a key role in keeping the animals happy and healthy, with an increasing market shift towards Premium, SuperPremium and healthy foods. Petfood manufacturers are being advised by market leaders to align closely with this trend.
