Market Dynamics

Increase in pet ownership rates has been a significant driver in boosting demand for the pet supplement market. According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), 63% of households in the U.S. own a pet in 2024. Among these pet-owning households, 44% own dogs, while 30% own cats. In addition, APPA has anticipated that by 2030, pet ownership is expected to increase to 67% in the U.S. households. The association has further forecasted that 46% of these households will own dogs, and 35% will own cats.

As more individuals bring pets into their homes, they become increasingly invested in ensuring the health and well-being of their furry companions. The increased sense of responsibility leads pet owners to seek out products that can enhance the health and longevity of pets, including nutritional supplements. Moreover, as pet owners develop stronger emotional bonds with their pets, they are more inclined to invest in products that can help improve their pets' quality of life. As a result, the emotional connection often translates into a willingness to spend more on premium pet care products, including pet supplements such as multivitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, and joint support formulas that addresses specific health concerns and provide additional nutritional support. With a larger population of pets in households, the overall market potential for pet supplements is expected to expand, creating pet supplement market opportunities for manufacturers and retailers to meet the rise in demand.

However, rise in regulatory constraints in the pet supplement industry are expected to negatively affect the pet supplement market during the forecast period. For instance, in the U.S., pet food is highly regulated by the U.S. FDA to meet both federal and state requirements. The U.S. FDA has imposed laws on both, finished pet supplements and their ingredients. An ingredient cannot be used in pet food supplement until it has been accepted by the FDA and by Association of American Feed Officials (AAFCO). These organizations develop model bills and legislation for pet supplements.

In addition, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010 (FSMA) introduced guidelines related to certification, sterilization, hygiene, and labeling of ingredients for pet supplement manufacturers in the U.S. In addition, owing to the lack of a universal regulatory structure, global trading becomes difficult. Huge investments are made in manufacturing feed additives and different regulations lead to severe losses for manufacturers. Hence, it becomes expensive to frequently update technologies and facilities in accordance with changing guidelines. Therefore, strict regulatory guidelines are expected to hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Introduction of organic and natural ingredients in pet supplement products has created market opportunities for pet supplement providers in recent years. People are getting more conscious about the beneficial and healthy effects of organic pet supplements, so pet owners find organic labeled pet food and supplements. Introduction of new products made from organic and natural ingredients is expected to disrupt the assumption that the pet supplement sector uses artificial ingredients or ingredients made from chemical additives. Consumers are increasingly adopting products with organic labels to not get affected by chemicals and artificial ingredients. Hence, many pet food and supplements processing industries are coming up with organic ingredient-based products, which are heavily demanded by pet owners. Growing innovation in ingredients and acceptance of organic pet supplements are likely to bring lucrative opportunities for pet supplement manufactures.

By Pet

By pet, the dog segment dominated the global pet supplement market in 2023 and is anticipated to continue the same trend during the forecast period.

These supplements help dogs to fight infection, perform daily activities, repair teeth & bones, and maintain their build and muscle tone.

Moreover, various health issues can be observed in dogs such as unplanned weight loss, joint & hip, skin & coat, fear and anxiety, which can be controlled by the pet supplements.

Thunder, fireworks, sirens, and separation from the owner are common reasons for anxiety in dogs.

This is majorly attributed to the fact that customers can get proper guidance and suggestions along with accurate pet supplements from the stores. Rise in urbanization and formation of nuclear families, especially in metro cities has increased the preference of consumers to buy from hypermarkets and supermarkets, which, in turn, favors smooth distribution of pet supplements and propels the pet supplement market growth.

As per the perspective of top-level CXOs, the global pet supplements market is expected to offer various business opportunities in the 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 supplements, medicines, and nutraceuticals.

CXOs stated that manufacturers are focusing on premium and super-premium pet supplements, including natural and organic-based supplements, which have been gaining considerable traction in the developed countries such as the U.S., Russia, Spain, and Italy. Furthermore, pet supplement manufacturing companies are displaying the transparency of ingredients, which are added in the product, as most consumers choose products by reading labels. In addition, consumers prefer products with organic and plant-based ingredients. Moreover, a study on pet behavior and pet diseases is further expected to broaden the scope of the pet supplement market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, CXOs believe that the rise in rate of internet penetration around the major parts of the world makes way for manufacturers to initiate several key online marketing programs. These online platforms are the easiest ways to create awareness about the benefits of pet supplements with respect to various problems associated with baby pets and well grown pets.
