The overall demand for different cat food products has increased, as the global pet food industry has been growing at a rapid pace. The mounting number of cat parents around the world has significantly triggered the growth of the cat foods industry, creating positive growth prospects for stakeholders in this landscape.
However, the conventional cat food products and the cat food products that are produced to cater to the specific health needs differ in characteristics, and cat parents are becoming aware of this fact. Growing health concerns among cat parents are expected to trigger the demand for specialty food products for cats in the coming years.
Mainly, the seriousness of urinary tract infections (UTI) in cats will primarily shape the growth prospects of the UTI cat food market, and ongoing research & development activities will further give rise to the introduction to innovative ingredients that help in treating UTI in cats faster and more effectively. These factors are expected to drive positive growth of the global UTI cat food market in the coming years.
Growing Prevalence of Urinary Tract Diseases in Cats to Boost Demand for UTI Cat Food Products
According to a survey conducted by Nationwide – one of the largest providers of pet health insurance in the United States, among the most common medical conditions observed in cats, bladder or urinary tract diseases topped the list in the U.S. in 2017.
This indicates that the UTI is among the most common health conditions that have prompted visits to a veterinarian among insured cats in the country.Though UTI is not a serious health condition among cats, it can be extremely painful, and cat food plays an important role in mitigating the pain and improving their urinary health.
Growing prevalence of UTI and such diseases among cats along with the rise in awareness about the role of cat food in curing these diseases is expected to boost growth of the UTI cat food market in the coming years.
Leading players in the global UTI cat food market are increasing their focus on discovering innovative ingredients that can contribute in reducing urine pH levels and support a healthy urinary tract in cats.
Consequently, increasing investments in research & development activities in the UTI cat food market is expected to emerge as a popular business strategy on the global platform, in the coming years.

Compliance with Strict Governmental Quality Standards and Regulations is Mandatory
The global market for UTI cat food products is mainly characterised with stringent regulations and high quality standards.

Though there is no need for stakeholders in the UTI cat food market to gain pre-market approval from FDA, mainly in North America, the organization ensures that the ingredients in these UTI cat food products are safe.

Stringent regulations and high quality standards in the global UTI cat food market is likely to add to the manufacturing and marketing costs of the stakeholders.
