LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global cat food market report. This research report also lists 12 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The market for cat foods is growing steadily due to increasing number of cat ownership, pet humanization, and a rise in health concerns of cats. Other factors like the presence of a wide variety of cat food flavors and an increase in sales through omnichannel retailing are also driving the market. However, multiple product recalls, an increase in homemade and raw pet foods, and strong regulations by governments might hinder market growth.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global cat food market is subjected to change as per growing consumer preferences and demands. The performance of the manufacturer is affected by the changing consumer spending pattern and consumer tastes, which is based on regional, national, and local economic conditions with respect to demographic trends.

“The global cat food market is quite fragmented. The market is characterized by the presence of small and large players who compete in terms of price, innovation, quality, distribution, and reputation. The increasing competition among these players might lead to a reduction in product prices,” says Manjunath Jaganathan, a lead food research analyst from Technavio.

The strong competition among vendors and swift technological changes are main risk factors to manufacturers. To thrive and succeed in this competition, it is imperative that the players distinguish their product offerings through a clear and unique value proposition.
