There are numerous varieties of pet products available in the market. People can choose from dry pet food, canned (the preserved ones), the kibbles & biscuits.
A Brief History
The commercial production of pet food started way back in the 1860s. England was the first to introduce dog food in the form of biscuits. After that, manufacturers around the world slowly opted for some enhanced and refined pet food products. In the 1930s, canned dog and cat food became more prominent, and after a few years, semi-moist food was in the limelight. What started with just dog food decades ago later shaped into a versatile industry which now caters to all the pets across the world. It is essential to mention that today, there are plenty of pet foods and snacks varieties are available which form a long list and give pet owners the option to choose the best fit for their loving animals.
The Market scenario worldwide
The global market of pet food is so robust that even economic slowdowns don’t hamper it at large. According to the latest report, the global pet food market stood at around USD 87 billion, which is enormous in terms of numbers. Experts have the opinion that in the coming years, the numbers will further increase. The report also states that countries like the US, Germany, Japan, and France account for half of the pet food sales, which is even more surprising. The figures throw light on the pet food market, which is growing in huge numbers.
