BUSINESS - US Pet Food Market to Reach $30B by 2022

A recent report by Zion Market Research states the “US pet food market is expected to reach USD 30.01 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.36% between 2017 and 2022.”

The US pet food market had a value of US$24.60 billion in 2016.

The report, Pet Food Market (Wet Food, Dry Food, Nutrition, Snacks and Others) for Cats, Dogs and Other Animals: US Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2016 – 2022, defined pet food as ready to serve food for pets such as dogs, cats, fish, birds and others.

The predicted growth of the pet food market is based on a rise in discretionary income, the increasing variety of ready to serve food on the market, and continued increase in the number of owned pets.

The National Pet Owners Survey in 2015 indicated around 60% of US houses have pets.

The shift in preference for nutritious pet food over the conventional food is also expected to foster the demand for pet food in the U.S.

The report notes there are almost 300 manufacturers operating in pet food sector in US which in total produce approximately 7 million tons of pet food annually.

Some of the major global players in pet food are Mars Petcare Inc., Big Heart Pet Brands, P&G PetCare, Nestle Purina PetCare, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Diamond Pet Foods, Deuerer, Blue Buffalo, WellPet and Heristo AG.
