Dogs dominate the Spanish pet food market as they are highly owned pets in the country

  • In 2022, dogs were the dominant players in the pet food market in Spain, with a market value of USD 1.23 billion. This dominance can be attributed to their large population in the country, accounting for approximately 36% (10.1 million) of the total pet population. As pet humanization continues to increase, pet owners are increasingly favoring premium pet products, including grain-free and vegan dog food. This trend is expected to boost the dog food market at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period, making it the fastest-growing segment in the country.
  • Cats held the second-largest market share in the Spanish pet food market, valued at USD 606 million in 2022. However, the main reason for cats holding a comparatively smaller market size than dogs was their lower population. The pet cat population in Spain accounted for 22.5% (6.3 million) of the total pet population, which was 37.8% less than that of dogs in the same year. Additionally, the consumption of cat food is significantly lower than that of dog food.
  • Although other pet animals, including birds, fish, reptiles, and rodents, made up around 41.3% of the overall pet population in Spain, they only accounted for 21.4% of the total pet food market value in 2022. This can be attributed to the fact that these pets are typically small in size and, therefore, require relatively small amounts of food.
  • With the rise in pet ownership during the pandemic and growing demand for premium pet food and specialized diets for pets' health, as well as the efforts of companies to introduce new products like organic pet foods and treats, the pet food market is expected to expand during the forecast period.
