DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 7, 2018--The "Saudi Arabia Pet Food Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Rising pet care awareness has resulted in a humanisation trend wherein an increasing number of owners treat their pets as family members. This has led to an increase in the demand for more nutritious pet food made with scientific formulations, thereby augmenting the market growth in the region.

Since some of the essential nutrients are lost during processing, the manufacturers are developing new and improved pet food variants in order to cater to the needs of all pets, ranging from dogs and cats to birds and reptiles, in turn, propelling the growth of the market.

Increasing trends in pet humanisation have created a highly competitive pet food market and manufacturers face major challenges from pet owners that are prone to blame pet food manufacturers in case their pets have any type of health issues.

Based on the pet type, the market has been segmented as cats, dogs and others. Currently, cats are the most popular type of pet as they are well suited to the regional climate and are considered to be sacred, cleaner, and cheaper to buy and maintain as compared to other pets.

On the basis of product type, dry pet food represents the leading segment holding the largest share. Since it is the most convenient type of pet food in terms of storage and feeding, its demand has been witnessing a surge. Other major pet food types include wet and canned, and snacks and treats.

Based on the ingredient type, the report finds that animal derivatives dominate the market as they are a rich source of amino acids, proteins, fats, and fat-soluble vitamins and minerals. Animal derivatives are followed by the plant derivatives and cereal derivatives.

On the basis of distribution channel, the market has been segregated into supermarkets and hypermarkets, convenience stores, online stores and others. Amongst these, supermarkets and hypermarkets currently enjoy the leading position in the Saudi Arabia pet food market.
