Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Vegan Dog Food Market

The COVID-19 pandemic posed unprecedented challenges to several industries, such as the food & beverage industry. During the early months of the pandemic, the food processing industry faced raw material shortage and distribution problems due to nationwide lockdown, manufacturing plants shutdown, and border restrictions under COVID-19 safety protocols. Small enterprises struggled to operate and sell their products because of the implementation of the COVID-19 safety regulations. Due to the nationwide lockdown and border restrictions, supply chains were entirely disrupted, significantly impacting the sales of various food and beverage goods.  However, it was observed that many pet owners spent a significant amount of money on their pets' health and nutrition. During lockdowns, people spent more time alone at home, which led to an upsurge in animal adoption. This factor has dramatically increased the demand for pet care items, such as pet food, positively impacting the global vegan dog food market. However, due to the shortage of raw materials and labor, there was a demand and supply gap, which hindered the sales and availability of products. Moreover, many distribution centers such as supermarkets and hypermarkets remained close due to lockdowns, which hampered product availability.

Businesses are gaining ground as previously imposed limitations are being eased across various locations. Moreover, the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines by governments of different countries has eased the situation leading to a rise in business activities across the world. Due to rising vaccination rates globally, the global marketplace has started recovering from the losses, which is expected to fuel the growth of the vegan dog food market. Moreover, e-commerce platforms played a significant role in reviving product sales because of their extensive logistics and distribution capabilities. The online retail platforms made the product available at the doorsteps of the consumers. These factors are projected to create lucrative opportunities for the market in the coming years.
