The global wet cat food market size was valued at $4.6 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $7.9 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.7% from 2021 to 2030.

Wet cat food contains about 10.0% water and 90% of other dry ingredients. It is a rich source of proteins and fats, which improve its taste. Meat and animal derivatives are some of the common wet cat foods used worldwide. Wet cat food is fed to cats that do not consume water. The high protein and fat content of wet cat food improves stamina of cats for faster metabolism, muscles building, hair growth, and healthy skin.

Wet Cat Food Market

The growth of the global wet cat food market demand is majorly driven by increase in preference of cat owners to feed wet cat food to their cats. This is attributed to the fact that wet cat food provides better nutrition to cats with ill health, as they lose their appetite. However, higher cost of wet cat food as compared to dry cat food is expected to hamper the growth of the wet cat food market. Moreover, the shelf life of wet cat food is lower than that of dry cat food, and requires refrigeration when the can is opened, which limits the market growth. Conversely, availability of cat treats, which is also available in wet form, is expected to offer lucrative opportunity for the market growth during the future.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • Trade restrictions imposed by several countries across the globe to curb the outbreak of COVID-19 have significantly affected global logistics and transportation, but have lower impact on the wet cat food market, as pet owners are increasingly opting and preferring local manufactured wet cat food products
