New Market Research Report: Dog Food in the United Arab Emirates

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Nov 24 2014

In 2014, dog food is expected to post current value growth of 9% and volume growth of 4%. Although healthy, these growth rates will be weaker than those registered in 2013. This will be mainly because the country is very much dominated by cats due to the limited number of houses available in comparison to apartments (dogs are not allowed to be kept in apartments) as well as cultural/Islamic restrictions with regard to owning a dog. Despite this, the category is seeing continued growth as the number of expatriates in the country increases and dog ownership grows in popularity among various nationalities.

Competitive Landscape

In 2014, dog food is enjoying wider distribution across both grocery and non-grocery channels. Dog food is more commonly purchased in pet shops and veterinary clinics than cat food. Despite this, it has been evident that more product launches are being seen in cat food. Furthermore, dog food consumption is expected to grow in line with the pet humanisation and health and wellness trends as dog owners become more concerned about what their dogs eat. Mars and Nestlé, being the leading players in the category, are expected to benefit the most from this.

Industry Prospects

Over the forecast period the health and wellness trend is expected to drive growth within certain dog food categories as pet owners become more educated thanks to government initiatives and major players’ marketing campaigns focusing on pet nutrition. Euromonitor International expects smaller players, such as ZiwiPeak Ltd and Butch Pet Foods Ltd, to grow thanks to their natural dog food offerings. Furthermore, economic stability and higher disposable incomes will help the premium dry dog food category to grow, while higher unit prices will further contribute to value sales.
