The European dog food market is primarily driven by four factors: health-oriented products, breed-specific diets, food for dogs at different age’s and treats.

In Western Europe, the dog food market is affected by tough economic conditions and people’s inability to keep larger-breed canines, leading to a sharp increase in the number of small dogs. New laws by the government, such as compulsory microchipping of dogs since April 2016 in the U.K., have also led to people preferring other types of pets. However, with health being the paramount concern, consumers pay more attention to organic and natural ingredients and healthy dog treats, which will drive value sales.

The trend driving the dog food market differ in this region, depending on the country.

In Vietnam, India, and China, value for money and product pricing are the most important factors for dog owners.
