The increasing number of dog owners is one of the key drivers of the dog food market. Rising pet ownership also is a driver of nondiscretionary and discretionary products demand including treats, toys, and various dog food products.

Some of the dog food producers are adopting aggressive marketing strategies to gain competitive edge. As a result there is increasing focus on improving the appearance of products, besides the overall quality and flavor. As a result, businesses are increasing their investments in new packaging choices.

Several companies are using recyclable boxes for dog food packaging. This is done to enhance the shelf life of dog food items and make them more appealing.
