Vegan pet food is produced with plant-based and natural ingredients without having a trace of animal derived raw material and ensuring no cruelty or exploitation of animals in any sorts. The factors such as the trend of veganism, humanization of pets, and increasing number of pet owners propel the growth of the vegan pet food market. However, nutrient deficiency related to vegan pet food hinders the market growth.
Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing market for vegan pet foods in the coming years. With the economic growth and rise in disposable income of people, lifestyle and consumption pattern of food are changing in countries such as India, China, and Japan. People in the region tend to prefer vegan diet due to some holistic beliefs, to protect the environment, and to focus on weight management. Vegan pet owners are offering vegan pet food to their pets since it is healthy and easy to digest, which is further influencing the growth of the vegan pet food market in Asia-Pacific. Also, the vegan pet food industry in the region is witnessing the entrance of new manufacturers with innovative products.
The COVID-19 outbreak is adversely affecting economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. The food & beverage industry is among the significant industries suffering from severe disruptions, such as restrictions on supply chain and shutdown of production plants. The shutdown of various plants and factories is hindering the global supply chains and negatively impacting the manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and various goods sales. Various companies have already announced possible delays in product deliveries and slump in future sales of their products. In addition, the global travel bans imposed by countries in Europe, Asia, and North America are hampering the business collaboration and partnership opportunities. The disturbed value chain during the initial days of the pandemic has had a negative impact on raw material supply and further impacting the vegan pet food market. However, as the economies are planning to revive their operations, the demand for vegan pet food is rising. In addition, most people are now working from home, and this change in lifestyle has further inspired families to welcome new pets to their families. So, the negative impact of COVID-19 pandemic has not been significant in the vegan pet food market. Instead, vegan pet food manufacturers witnessed a significant rise in the sale of their products through online retail.
People value their pets and are also ready to spend significant money on keeping them healthy. The pet owners who are vegan prefer to feed vegan food to their pets. Most of the pet owners always opt for products that have clean labels, sustainability claims, and functional nutrition. Majority of the global population consider their pet as a family member. In addition, some of the families own more than just one dog, making them an integral part of the household. Moreover, the number of pet-friendly workplaces are increasing at a significant rate. Thus, growing humanization of pets increases the awareness regarding the quality and ingredients of the pet food provided by the owners, which propels the demand for the vegan pet food market.
