Cat Food and Treats Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Cat food and treats: Food for cats based on their nutrient requirement

  • Cats need appropriate amount of and well balanced food every day for healthy growth, just like human beings. Cats require specific minerals and vitamins, especially calcium, Vitamin A, and niacin. These nutrients are not available in sufficient quantity in foods such as cheese and bone marrow or sweet sugary substances given to the cats by the owners. Cat food and treats fulfill these requirements.
  • The global cat food and treats market is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to increasing adoption of cats across the globe. Increasing disposable income and growing awareness about pet health and wellness is also anticipated to increase the demand for the products.
