Demand for higher-quality, nutritionally sound foods for pets is continuing to rise on a global scale. As a result, the all-natural product segment is witnessing an increase in grain-free, meat-and-poultry-first, and clean, wholesome-ingredients.

Cat food flavor profiles are consistent with the rest of the pet food market, which mirrors human dietary preferences. As a result of the increased consumer interest in quality and nutrition, premium wet cat food is becoming popular.

The rising focus on pet health has boosted the scope of sales for functional cat food. Cat owners are looking for products that have higher nutritional value. These factors are creating lucrative growth opportunities for new and existing players.

Functional foods are incorporated with several essential nutrients. Consequently, manufacturers should focus on the launch of new functional products to upscale their business. The demand for frozen and freeze-dried cat food is increasing. One of the factors driving the growth of the frozen and freeze-dried pet food market is the growing trend of nuclear families.

Advertisements and pet health awareness campaigns are on the rise, and celebrity endorsements are another element driving the popularity of frozen and freeze-dried cat foods. These products can be preserved for longer periods of time without losing key characteristics.
