Pet Care Packaging Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Pet Care Packaging Market by Material Type – Plastic, Paper & Paperboard, Metal for 2020-2030

Growing Pet Food Demand Stimulates Growth

In the wake of COVID-19, the global pet care packaging market is likely to experience deceleration in the near-term forecast. Rising pet ownership around the world has accelerated demand for pet care products such as pet foods, toys, nutraceuticals, healthcare supplements, cosmetics, clothes and other products. The ever increasing demand for pet foods is slated to emerge as the key driver of the pet care packaging market from 2020-2030.

Growing Demand for Paper & Paperboard Packaging

Growing concerns regarding recyclability and sustainability of conventional packaging materials such as metals and plastics is broadening the scope of paper & paperboard packaging materials. The segment is poised to hold a succulent market share throughout the forecast period.

High demand for lightweight and flexible packaging solutions is also expected to steer the paper & paperboard segment. Moderate deceleration is expected due to COVID-19, attributed to temporary dips in production cycles until 2021-end. Growth is likely to resume traction after the said period.

Cans Continue to Hold High Market Share

As demand for pet food increases, metal cans production to store the pet food is experiencing a massive uptick. This trend is scheduled to continue in the upcoming assessment period. Manufacturers are looking to introduce innovative design patterns to enhance aesthetic appeal and attract more customers.

However, bags and pouches are acquiring significant momentum. This is largely in response to growing environmental consciousness among pet owners. Re-closable and reusable stand-up pouches are especially becoming highly popular among customers. These materials are expected to provide competition to metal packaging materials.

Asia Pacific Complementing Demand from Traditional Markets

Countries such as India, China and Japan are expected to emerge as the highest growing regions for pet care packaging in the forthcoming assessment decade. Growth is primarily ascribed to rising pet ownership due to increasing nuclear families and pet humanization trends.

North America is likely to retain market hegemony, driven by a high proportion of dog and cat ownership by individual households. This has prompted major food giants to introduce pet food portfolios in their businesses. Europe is poised to emerge as the 2nd most dominant market after North America.
