The North America Pet Food Nutraceuticals Market was worth USD 1.82 billion in 2021 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 4.23%, to reach USD 2.19 billion by 2026.

Pet food supplements are classified as either dietary or therapeutic supplements. Dietary supplements are substances combined with the pet foods to make them nutritionally whole and well-adjusted. Therapeutic supplements (also known as nutraceuticals) are foods that are taken orally to provide a health advantage, either for deterrence or treatment of a disease.  

Drivers and Restraints:

The growth of the North America Pet Food Nutraceuticals market is majorly driven by factors such as increasing urbanization, rising wages, implementation of channel specific product expansion, and varying lifestyles, leading to a drop in birth rates and an increase in the number of single person families. Pets are being considered as family members and thus the user predilection for nutrition empowered pet food is further driving the pet food nutraceutical market. However, factors such as different regulatory bodies, lack of recognition of pet food in under-developed countries, and lack of raw materials are restraining the growth of the market in this region.
