Providing food to pets at the required quantity and time interval is essential for their good health. Automatic pet feeder products are designed to provide pets with a high-quality and balanced feed regularly.

In addition, the increasing problem of obesity in pets has driven the demand for automatic pet feeder products. However, the higher cost of these products may limit market expansion to some extent.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): According to a study by the American Pet Products Association, nearly 12.5 million households adopted new pets during the pandemic, which will positively impact automatic pet feeder market growth in the short term.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): North America and Europe anticipated to exhibit high automatic pet feeder demand owing to a surge in product accessibility and visibility through online retailing.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Increase in the use of automatic pet feeders for balanced nutrient diets for pets will drive long-term demand.

From 2017 to 2021, the global automatic pet feeder market registered a CAGR of 6.6%. Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, predicts the market to exhibit growth at 9.6% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

Why is the Popularity of Automatic Pet Feeders Surging?

“Smart Homes Drive Demand for Automatic & Smart Pet Feeders”

With the trend of digitized and smart homes on the rise, demand for automatic pet feeders is increasing in parallel. These smart pet feeders can connect to the end user's smartphone. They help owners remotely monitor the activities of their pets with ease.

Ease of remote operation via Wi-Fi technology is supporting market growth. Recently, several feeder vendors have begun connecting smart feeders to digital voice assistants such as Amazon's voice-launched virtual personal assistant Alexa.

  • For example, Petnet Inc. offers intelligent technology that controls the behavior of SmartFeeder by integrating Amazon Alexa functionality. This allows users to operate these smart-tech automatic pet feeders with their own voice.

“Rise in Adoption of Pets as Partners for Mental Well-being”

Demand is driven by lifestyle changes and busy work schedules of the urban population, as well as increased product awareness and accessibility brought about by online retailing. In addition, with the increasing adoption of pets from animal shelters, sales of automatic pet feeders will grow significantly.

Market growth is gaining momentum as pet owners are becoming more attentive to their pet’s health and welfare. Growing popularity of adopting pets as a friend for mental health and entertainment is increasing, along with spending on pet care, which is fueling the demand for pet food & drink dispensers.

“Surging Pet Population across the World”

Increasing pet population around the world and rising awareness about the importance of pets in the family have led to an increase in the number of pets.

Pet adoption increased during the COVID-19 pandemic as people were free to spend time with dogs and cats at home. This growing pet population around the world will contribute to the development of the automatic pet feeders market.

Which Pet Type Accounts for the Largest Share in Automatic Pet Feeders?

Based on pet type, dogs held a high market share of 65.5% in 2021. Dog pet feeders are expected to experience a significant CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period.

Cats and dogs are normally domesticated in human society, and human ties generally bring mutual psychosocial health benefits. Following the worldwide spread of COVID-19, social distance measurements such as working from home were strengthened around the world.

In addition to rising unemployment, the average daily time spent at home by the general population increased significantly compared to the corresponding season in 2019 as a result of the pandemic. An increase in the adoption of dogs from shelters was been observed. In the UK, adoption rates are increasing, and shelters may even be empty soon, according to reports.

This increased adoption of dogs and cats has fueled the demand for automatic feeders for cats and dogs. A majority of automatic cat food dispensers are similar to electronic automatic feeders for dogs.

The automatic dog feeder market is expected to reach US$ 900.5 million by 2032. On the other hand, the automatic cat feeder market reached US$ 122.2 million at the end of 2021.

Furthermore, with the global economy on the way up, the dog segment is expected to expand 2.4X by the end of 2032.

Why is the Market Still Led by Offline Automatic Pet Feeder Sales?

Based on distribution channels, the market is segmented into online sales channels and offline sales channels. The offline sales channel held a high-value share of 58% of the overall automatic pet feeder market in 2021.

The rise of online pet product shopping not only tends to flatten the growth of the customer base in other retail sectors but is also responsible for the most important changes in cross-channel automatic pet feeder shopping patterns.

There has been a slow shift among pet owners toward online retail; however, a major transition was not witnessed until 2020 towards the online sales of automatic pet feeders.

Major players are focusing on enhancing the presence of their online sales channels for automatic pet feeders and are anticipated to see greater growth prospects in the years ahead.

Offline sales of automatic pet feeders in 2021 were US$ 291 million and are expected to grow 2.7X between 2022 and 2032.
