Future Market Insights (FMI) has provided a detailed analysis of growth drivers and factors restricting expansion of its global cat food market survey. The study also covers growth trends across various sectors including product type, age, distribution channel and packaging, with finished bag packaging emerging as the latest trend.

Dubai, The United Arab Emirates, August 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The growing demand for vegan, nutrient-rich pet foods has boosted sales of vegan cat foods. According to ESOMAR Future Market Insights (FMI) certified consultancy, the global market for plant-based cat foods is expected to exceed 10,560.40 Million USD in 2021.

Growing concerns about pet health are driving the demand for meatless pet food alternatives. This trend is encouraging pet food producers to incorporate plant-based formulas such as pea protein into their cat food products. As a result, FMI expects the vegan cat food market to expand at a positive 7.2% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2031.

The spread of plant-based diets around the world has increased sales of vegan cat food. Transparent ingredient lists are very popular in human foods and this trend has proven important in shaping pet owners’ preference for quality nutrients in pet foods as well. Thus, the focus on product development in plant-based foods, treats and wet foods is all-time high, creating sales opportunities in vegan cat food.

The overall rise in pet ownership and per capita spending on pet food are major factors providing a tailwind to vegan cat food sales. Unique processing technologies, reusable packaging such as pouches, stand up pouches, and product certifications will remain key variables influencing sales of vegan cat food.

According to FMI regional analysis, the US is expected to dominate the vegetarian cat food market 2616.28 million US dollars In 2021. The growth could be attributed to an increase in the incidence of gluten sensitivity in pets, leading to a shift in pet owners’ focus from processed foods to plant foods for cats.

“The increasing prevalence of humanization of pets, along with the ease of availability of vegan cat food through online channels, is expected to drive sales in the global vegan cat food market between 2021 and 2031,” says the FMI analyst.
