GCC Cat Food Market Overview:

The GCC cat food market was worth US$ XX Billion in 2021, expanding at a CAGR of X% during 2016-2021. Looking forward, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around X% during 2022-2027, reaching a value of US$ XX Billion by 2027. Cat food is commercially produced specialty food prepared by using animal or plant materials. It is a rich source of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, as well as other nutrients, including amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. It helps combat skin allergies and infections and improves the overall health and life expectancy of cats as compared to home-made food. At present, there is an escalating demand for cat food across GCC countries as individuals consider cats sacred, which results in a significantly higher cat population than other animals.

The market is primarily driven by the rising adoption of exotic and expensive cat breeds by affluent Emiratis across the GCC countries to uplift their social status and image. In addition, rapid urbanization and the increasing trend of pet humanization, where owners consider their pets as family members , has increased awareness about the pet’s health and nutrition among the owners, which is escalating the demand for cat food. Moreover, the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has accelerated the pet adoption rate, which represents another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, owners are spending on healthy and organic food products with the increasing disposable income and ongoing concerns about pet health. This, coupled with the growing awareness about the benefits offered by cat food, such as maintaining weight, increasing energy levels, and preventing infections and allergies, is accelerating the adoption of premium-quality cat food over home-cooked food. Other factors, including extensive research and development activities conducted by the leading manufacturers to launch grain-free, high-protein, organic cat food variants and expanding their consumer base, the widespread availability of a wide variety of cat food brands on organized retail channels and e-commerce platforms, and the implementation of stringent regulations regarding cat food manufacturing due to the growing prevalence of pet obesity are also creating a positive market outlook across the GCC region.
