Based on Pet Type, market is segmented into Dogs, Cats, Fishes, and Others (Birds, Small mammals, etc.). Among these, Dogs segment held the largest share of Australia pet food market. In Australia, people tend to keep dogs as pets rather than cats and other animals. Cat, on the other hand, is a more popular pet among affluent class people in the country. Nevertheless, the population of pet fish is also increasing as people are moving into smaller houses and high-rise apartments due to increasing urbanization. Since keeping a large pet like dog or cat as pet in smaller dwellings in not feasible, the adoption of fish as pet is also increasing among pet enthusiasts in the country. In addition, the fact that fish occupy very less space and their maintenance is cheaper is also leading to higher adoption among Australians, thereby driving the demand for fish food in the country.
Based on Food Type, market is segmented into Dry, Wet, and Others. Dry Pet food leads the Australia pet food market, since dry pet foods have lower moisture content than other pet foods and can be used in a variety of food types depending on the companion animal. Based on Distribution Channel, market is further categorized into Supermarkets, Pets Stores/Specialty Stores, Butcher, and Online. ‘Supermarket’ segment dominated Australia pet food market and will continue to lead during forecast period as Supermarkets usually provide mainstream brands, which can often prove to be more competitive in terms of price as well as quality. Niche or specialty products are mostly only available from individual pet supplies stores or veterinarian offices. The sale of pet food items via online channels is expected to strengthen the country’s pet food market in the coming years due to the growing inclination of millennials towards online purchases. The high level of convenience offered by online platforms such as doorstep delivery along with the growing partnerships of the pet food industry players with e-commerce retailers, is expected to further accelerate the growth of the segment in the coming years.
