Saudi Arabia Pet Food Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Adoption of Pets in Saudi Arabia

Pet ownership in Saudi Arabia is witnessing a substantial rise over the past few years with the influence of global trends. The humanization of pets is also making pet owners more aware of the nutritional needs of their pets and are spending more on their health. Therefore, they are only feeding high-quality, nutritious food to their pets. Furthermore, the high disposable income of the Saudis is also acting as a major factor for the growing demand for premium pet food in the country, propelling the growth of the overall market.

Stringent Government Regulations for Pet Owners

Pet ownership is regulated by certain laws and guidelines to ensure the safety and rights of the pets and protect them from potential mistreatment. According to an article published in Gulf News, “Saudi authorities have warned that carelessness towards pets is punishable by a fine of up to 50,000 riyals. “Negligence of animals is represented by their owners’ lack of attention, malnutrition (of the pets) or leaving them without adequate food or food or failing to give them enough rest,” the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture said on its Twitter.”

Restraints

Stringent Pet Adoption Regulations in Saudi Arabia

Unlike other countries, Saudi Arabia is very strict regarding pet adoption in the country. Although dog and cat adoption is gaining huge popularity in the country, it still needs to comply with the regulations of the country. For instance, dangerous and aggressive dogs such as Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are not permitted entry into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under any circumstances, according to the regulations stated by the Saudi Embassy. This acts as a major restraining factor for the growth of the Saudi Arabia pet food market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Saudi Arabia Pet Food Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak negatively impacted the growth of the Saudi Arabia pet food market. Several countries worldwide imposed strict lockdowns to curb the spread of the virus, due to which the import and export activities were completely halted. Due to this, the production and supply channels of pet food were also hindered, affecting its market growth. The shortage of demand and supply created a huge demand and supply gap in the retail stores. However, the pet food brands and consumers shifted towards online stores, which kept the market floating during these sensitive times.

Saudi Arabia Pet Food Market - By Product

Based on product, the Saudi Arabia pet food market is segmented into dry, wet/canned, nutritious, and snacks/treats. The dry pet food type holds the largest market share. These types of pet food are highly durable and have a longer shelf life, due to which they are more preferred by pet owners compared to other types. Furthermore, they are also at reasonable prices, due to which they attract low-end consumers as well. Dry food is also considered more suitable for the dental health of pets, which acts as a driving factor for market growth.

Saudi Arabia Pet Food Market - By Pet Type

Based on pet type, the Saudi Arabia pet food market is segmented into dogs, cats, fish, and others. Cats hold the largest share in the Saudi Arabia pet food market. These pets receive great admiration from Saudis for their cleanliness. They are considered ritually clean and therefore are allowed to enter homes and even mosques. However, dogs are also gaining huge traction in the market. The adoption of dogs is emerging as a fashion trend among Saudis, which is anticipated to drive market growth in the forecast period.

Saudi Arabia Pet Food Market - By Sales Channel

Based on the sales channel, the Saudi Arabia pet food market is segmented into specialized pet shops, online channels, and retail stores. The retail store's segment accounts for the largest market share. This is because of the common habit of buying pet food along with other groceries. Furthermore, the consumer’s inclination towards large retail stores that offer a wide range of pet foods of various brands and pets as well as of different prices acts as a major restraining factor for the growth of the retail store segment.
