By pet, the cat segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period
The cat segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR as sales of premium cat food are on the rise, and its high cost has not caused any hindrance in the growth of the premium cat food market. The increasing focus of consumers on preventive healthcare is one of the factors driving the demand for expensive and high-quality cat food in the pet food industry.

The diversification of marketing channels for cat food and increased popularity of organic cat food products are factors that are projected to promote the growth of the cat food market.

Additionally, 60% of dog foods and 45% of cat foods contain an oil additive. Among fats, the vegetable oil and fish oil markets are projected to grow at high rates.
South America is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the pet food ingredients market due to the increase in export-import of pet food ingredients and growing adoption rate
The South American pet food ingredients market is projected to grow at a steady pace due to the increase in the sale of pet food products in countries such as Brazil.
