  • Report ID: GMI1471

Organic Pet Food Market size is poised to grow with a lucrative CAGR from 2023 to 2032, on account of the rising pet adoption trend across the globe. Changing lifestyles and nuclear family structure is creating a pressing need for companionship and many are turning to owning pets to get rid of their loneliness or avoid living alone.

The surging pet adoption rate is exerting a notable focus on pet well-being, fueling the sales of different pet products, including organic pet food. Owners often prioritize the health of their pets and have a strong desire to help them lead healthy lives. With correct nutrition being key to these goals, many are turning to organic pet food products.

Organic food is proven to lead to improved coat and skin appearance, healthy weight, and high energy levels in pets. These foods are loaded with amino acids, minerals, fatty acids, vitamins, and proteins.

They are free of artificial flavors, colors, allergen, and preservatives, and often emulate the natural diets of the animals they’re intended for. They can also be tailor-made for the pet animals based on their type and age. Many owners also treat organic food as a way improve their immune responses so as to avoid costly, and often painful vet visits.

Despite the expanding pet population creating a broad scope for product adoption, factors such as supply chain issues, rising prices, and lack of pet industry-related regulations may pose challenges for organic pet food market growth.

Organic pet foods currently make up just a small portion of the overall pet food sector. Many pet food manufacturers are also being forced to comply with organic labels for human food in the existing industry scenario due to the unavailability of a set regulation pet foods, which restrains organic pet food market demand.

However, a multitude of organic food brands are coming up despite these constraints, often collaborating with exclusive pet shops to drive revenues, stimulating the industry outlook despite roadblocks.

Based on animal, the organic pet food market from the dog food segment is expected to build substantial revenues by 2032, led by the growing adoption of dogs for the improvement of cardiovascular health and stress reduction.

Product innovations in the dog food segment are likely to contribute to segment expansion. Citing an instance, in November 2020, Nestlé Purina, a pet food company, launched dog and cat food with plant and insect proteins.

Based on product, the organic pet food market from the dry pet food segment is anticipated to witness remarkable gains by 2032. The dry pet food has a lower volume and weight as compared to the wet counterpart, making it easier to store. In addition, dry organic pet food offers convenience while cleaning the animals’ teeth. They also do not need to be refrigerated once opened and takes longer to spoil.

From the regional perspective, the Europe organic pet food market is anticipated to register notable gains by 2032, on account of a surging number of pet owners in the region. As per European Pet Food Federation (FEDIAF), 46% of households in Europe own companion animals, which created a strong demand for organic pet food for better health and well-being of the pets. In fact, the Europe industry is likely to foresee an annual growth rate of 3.1% on the back of this demand.

The leading organic pet food market players include Nestle, Party Animal, Newman’s Own, Harrison’s Bird Foods, PetGuard, Lily’s Kitchen, BIOpet Pet Care Ltd., Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company, Inc., and Organic Pet Boutique. Many of these companies are prioritizing mergers and acquisitions to reinforce their industry position. Citing an instance, in November 2022, Mars Petcare, part of Mars, Incorporated, an American pet food company, announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Champion Petfoods, a supplier of premium pet food in the natural category.

The deal will help broaden Mars Petcare’s existing pet food portfolio by adding products in the premium pet food category.

Back in June 2022, Mars Petcare also announced that it has achieved its target to source fish in its pet products as part of its Europe sustainably efforts.

Impact of inflation of inflation on the organic pet food market

The post-pandemic inflation has emerged as a major challenge for the market as it taking away pet owners’ spending power. Many owners are now finding it difficult to address the needs of their pets owing to soaring pet product prices. According to a Veternarians.org survey, over 50% of the surveyed pet owners are being forced to buy cheaper pet food due to inflation.

This, combined with the resumption of work from office, is giving rise to a new phenomenon called post-pandemic pet abandonment. Owners who are unable to look after their pets due to their restrictive office hours or their inability to spend on pet basics such as food are returning their companion animals to shelters. However, growing awareness about organizations that offer pet ownership support to people in need is remedying the industry revenue.
