Market Overview

Pet food is defined as processed plant or animal extracts that are safe for pets to consume. It has been painstakingly designed to provide a balanced blend of essential nutrients for a dog's health and well-being. Pet food commonly contains fish derivatives, animal derivatives, fruit and vegetable derivatives, cereal and cereal by-products, fats and oils, vitamins and minerals, and other additives. This food has numerous health benefits for pets, including increased immunity, weight maintenance, increased life expectancy, a lower risk of skin ailments and allergies, and a lower risk of digestive disorders. It also offers pet owners a convenient and time-saving solution. South Koreans consider their pets to be family members, so they take good care of them. The major factors driving the South Korean pet food market are rising per capita income, rising disposable income, and pet humanization. As a result, consumer spending on a variety of premium and super-premium high-quality pet foods, as well as specialized healthy and therapeutic pet foods, has increased. This is compelling manufacturers to produce high-quality foods using natural and organic ingredients. South Korea's most popular product is dry food. However, due to wet food's high digestibility, demand for wet food is increasing.

Driving Factors

One of the primary market drivers is expected to be the rising rate of pet ownership in South Korea, particularly in developing areas. Rising urbanization and pet humanization are encouraging pet owners to choose nutritious and high-quality food for their pets, which is increasing the growth rate of the South Korean pet food market. The rising per capita income of consumers encourages them to spend money on healthy and organic food products for their pets in order to improve their health. Furthermore, the easy availability of products in a range of price ranges is encouraging growth in the South Korean pet food market. They offer consumers with varying financial situations and options. Rising pet food manufacturers' innovation will have a positive impact on the market. The key market players are focusing on the introduction of a wide range of pet food products to meet the needs of different types of animals of varying ages. During the forecast period, this is expected to drive growth in the South Korean pet food market.

 

Restraining Factors

Pet food is one of the most strictly regulated food products, particularly in South Korean markets. Pet animal foods are rigorously tested in South Korean markets at every stage, from the ingredients used in food preparation to sales and marketing. The high stringency associated with commercialization may be a major impediment to the expansion of the South Korean pet food market. Furthermore, lower acceptance of premium or high-priced pet food in some developing markets may impede the growth of the South Korean pet food market.

 

Market Segment

  • In 2022, the dog segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on animal type, the South Korea pet food market is segmented into dogs, cats, birds, and others. Among these, the dog segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Customers in South Korea spend a lot of money on premium dry dog food. Dogs are gaining popularity, particularly due to the increasing urbanization and apartment living trend. With the increased popularity of dogs as pets, dog food manufacturers have increased their efforts to provide more dog food options. Gourmet products for dogs play a major role in driving South Korea pet food market growth over the forecast period, as dog owners are increasingly feeding their dogs premium food treats and mixers, and manufacturers are entering the lucrative South Korean dog food market.

 

  • In 2022, the specialty stores segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on distribution channels, the South Korea pet food market is segmented into supermarkets & hypermarkets, online stores, specialty stores, and others. Among these, the specialty stores segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. In South Korea, importers and wholesalers to specialized pet food stores, and in some cases, secondary wholesalers to retailers, are the most common distribution channels for pet foods. In the case of South Korean manufacturers with overseas manufacturing facilities, products are imported directly within the company or through subsidiaries and then distributed to retailers via wholesalers.
