Dry Dog Food demand will witness a surge with an optimistic growth outlook on the back of pet adoption, increasing animal shelter development and newer property development having attached pet houses.

Over the past five years, thousand-year and Generation Z consumers have adopted animals more and more and have resulted in rapid pet industry development. Furthermore, the market is expected to see substantial growth soon as technology advances and developments have been observed in plant-based food products.

What is Driving the Demand for Dry Dog Food?

One of the primary drivers of the market is expected to be the rising rate of pet ownership worldwide, especially in developing regions. Increasing urbanization and pet humanization are encouraging pet owners to choose healthy and high-quality food for their pets, boosting the market's development.

Consumers with rising per capita income are more likely to spend on nutritious and organic dog food for their pets to improve their health. Furthermore, the widespread availability of products in a variety of price ranges is boosting global demand growth by providing customers with a variety of financial options.

The main global market players are focused on the introduction of a range of pet food items to meet the needs of various types of animals of various ages. This is expected to be the driving force behind the global economy. In India, for instance, Nestle Purina Petcare introduced "Supercoat," a premium dog food line in 2018. To increase their sales, these market players are tapping into markets with greater potential in countries such as China, Argentina, and India.

The US and Canada Dry Dog Food Market outlook

The United States is one of the leading markets for Dry dog food across the globe. This is because over 63.4 million households in the country own a dog as of the 2019-2020 financial year. Besides, the US has an overall pet dog population of 89.7 Million, according to the pet owner’s survey conducted by American Pet Products Association in 2018.

As per the statistics, over 48% of Americans own a dog as of 2019. The American Pet Products Association reports that 34% of dogs are purchased from breeders, while 23% are saved from an animal shelter or Humane Society. Furthermore, nearly 33% of Americans considered purchasing a pet during the Covid-19 pandemic as per a survey conducted by CNBC. It is also found that millennials dominate with a 32% share of pet ownership in the United States.

Canada on the other hand has around 7.7 Million dogs as per the Canadian Animal Health Institute (CAHI) survey conducted in 2020. As per CAHI, over 58% of Canadian households own either a dog or a cat. However, Canada has a higher cat population standing at 8.1 Million as of 2020. Owing to this higher number of pets in Canadian households, it is expected to contribute viably to the dog food demand in the times to come.

However, when comparing the US and Canada side by side, the US having almost ten time the pet dogs population has been statistically generating higher demand for dry dog food in the past years and is supposed to exert its dominance in the years to come.
