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

In the GCC region, the demand for cat food has been rising as households across the GCC countries consider cats as sacred and prefer them over dogs resulting in a significantly higher cat population compared to the dog population.

Based on the product type, the market has been segmented into dry food, wet and canned food, and snacks and treats food. Amongst these, dry food represents the largest segment as it is easier to handle and cheaper than other types of cat food products.

On the basis of ingredient, animal derivatives currently dominate the cat food market as they are easy for the cat to digest and offer numerous nutrients including vitamins, amino acids and minerals, etc.

Cat food can be purchased by pet owners through different means including super markets and hyper markets, convenience stores, online stores, etc. Amongst these, super markets and hyper markets represent the biggest distribution channel across the region as they offer various products in different range of prices and brands.

Region-wise, UAE currently holds the largest share of the GCC cat food market on account of a large cat population and a rising demand for premium products. In addition to this, many residential buildings, restaurants and public spaces have started allowing the entry of pets, such as cats and dogs, etc., inside the premises which has further propelled the demand for cat food across the region. UAE is followed by Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.
