Cat Litter Market expected to rise at over 5.3% CAGR between 2021 and 2031

Driven by increasing adoption of pets across the globe, demand for Cat Litter Market is expected to rise at over 5.3% CAGR between 2021 and 2031. Increasing expenditure by cat owners on the care products will result in growing demand for cat litter.

Some of the leading companies operating in the cat litter market are extensively relying on e-commerce platforms to establish their global presence. On the back of this, market players are investing heavily in promotional activities and new product launches to woo cat owners.

Demand for natural cat litter is surging exponentially. This can be attributed to the rising number of cat owners who are increasing the adoption of natural cat litter such as plant fiber litters. Increasing awareness regarding environment also has bolstered the adoption of recyclable and eco-friendly cat litter.

Hence, the demand for pine, walnut, and corn cat litters is increasing. Steered by this, some of the leading market players are investing in research initiatives to offer eco-friendly cat litter, which also is available at an affordable price. For instance, Yesterday’s News, a brand of Nestle Purina, manufactures unscented cat litter from post-consumer waste derived from newspapers. These developments are expected to help in growth of the market in the coming years.
