Analyst Review

According to the insights of CXOs of leading companies, the global functional pet treat market is expected to offer remunerative business opportunities in developing economies such as India and China. This is attributed to increase in adoption of pets (especially dogs and cats) and awareness regarding various pet care and pet grooming products such as functional, supplements, medicines, and nutraceuticals.

Asia-Pacific is one of the most crucial and high potential regions for the functional pet treat industry. Asia-Pacific has diverse countries, such as Australia and Japan, which have reached a maturity stage and have emerging markets such as China and India. There is further a sharp contrast in the buying patterns and social cultures in these countries.

The functional pet treat market in Asia-Pacific is being largely driven by rapid urbanization and pet ownership has been increasing at a significant growth rate among millennials across the region. Increasing incidences of loneliness are contributing to increase the demand for pets, as they are effectively contributing to overcome such a mental state with their loyalty and affection. However, existing challenges, such as close substitutes of functional pet treat and lack of awareness regarding its benefits, are expected to hamper the growth of the functional pet treat market during the forecast period. Furthermore, people usually feed their pets with treats consumed by humans, such as white rice, dairy products, fish, chicken, and peanut butter, instead of recommended pet treat and functional pet treat, which is expected to hinder the growth of the market.
