The pandemic led to changes in consumer spending habits, with some pet owners prioritizing essential pet care products, including specialized pet foods, weight management diets, and nutritional supplements. In response to this demand, pet food producers and distributors began to offer a range of diets tailored to individual pet obesity, low-calorie treats, and weight control formulae. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the market.

Pets, like their owners, are leading increasingly sedentary lifestyles. With less physical activity and more time spent indoors, pets are prone to weight gain. Low-quality pet food or overfeeding can lead to excessive calorie intake, contributing to pet weight gain. Additionally, the rise of table scraps and high calorie treats further exacerbates the issue.

Additionally, Changes in demographics and lifestyles, including urbanization, smaller living spaces, and busier schedules, often accompany the expansion of pet ownership. These factors can reduce pets’ opportunities to engage in physical activity and increase their reliance on convenience foods, contributing to obesity.

However, Pet obesity management often involves feeding pets specialized diets to help them lose weight safely while meeting their nutritional needs. These diets can be more expensive than regular pet food due to their specific formulations and ingredients tailored for weight management. Thus, the high cost of obesity management is hampering the market’s growth.
