However, the need for pet owners to take care of their pets and provide necessary facilities has bolstered the growth of the segment through increased sales in the e-commerce segment. This is further anticipated to grow during the forecast period. 

North America had the largest market share in 2019. Due to the increasing number of cat owners in the region, the region continues to be the leading market.
