The Australian Pet Food Market is projected to grow to $ 2.9 billion by 2025.

Major growth driver for the Australian Pet Food Market includes pet humanization and the increasing desire to opt for pet food innovations, as most of the people find pets to be part of their family, so they are looking for the same quality of pet food as they look in food for themselves.

Other driving factors include rising urbanization, increasing consumer disposable income and increasing health concerns about pets making consumer to opt for premium pet food items. Additionally, Vegan, and grain-free pet food brands have also gained prominence in the pet food industry. Such trends are projected to raise the market for pet food premium ingredients.

Based on Type, the market is segmented into Dogs, Cats, Fish and Others (Birds, Small Mammals, etc.). The 'Dog' segment is projected to account for the largest share in the Australian Pet Food Market. The growing trend of dog adoption as a family companion is expected to fuel the demand for the product. Dogs are experiencing an upward trend in terms of the idea of pet humanization. This has resulted in an increase in the number of people who own dogs and feed them with premium foods.

Based on Food Type, the market is further categorized into Dry, Wet and Others (includes Treats, Flake & Pellet, Freeze-Dried, etc.). Among these, the 'Dry Food' segment had the largest market share in 2019 and the segment will maintain its lead in forecast years as well. Dry type is more commonly used in pet food products, and its popularity can be due to its cost-effective nature and low moisture content, which enables easy handling during storage and processing.

Based on Distribution Channel, the market is further split into Supermarket, Pet Shop/Pet Specialty, Butcher and Online. Supermarkets and Pet Shops/Pet Specialty remains an important source of pet products. A rising number of fortified pet food items are being sold alongside health-specific goods.

In fact, owners of other types of pets generally rely on pet shops as their primary source of food-though bird owners prefer supermarkets. Supermarkets are the leading stores for pet food, but the trend is changing to specialist stores.
