The cat litter sector is witnessing significant growth fueled by increasing pet ownership across the globe. Moreover, the growing trend of pet humanization and increased spending on companion animals are the major factors boosting the sales of cat litter products. Pets are viewed as family members and owners are willing to invest more in their health and well-being, including regular veterinary care.

Moreover, around 16% of Canadians and 17% of Americans considered odor control the primary feature of cat litter products.

Clumping Cat Litter Market Analysis And Forecast

Clumping cat litter offers a significant convenience advantage as it forms solid clumps when in contact with liquid waste. This makes it much easier for pet owners to scoop and remove the soiled litter from the litter box. The ability to quickly and efficiently clean the litter box saves time and effort, making clumping cat litter a popular choice for busy pet owners. Moreover, hygiene and cleanliness are also significant drivers for the adoption of clumping cat litter. The solid clumps formed by this type of litter can be easily removed, leaving behind clean litter for the cat to use. This regular removal of soiled litter helps to maintain a clean and sanitary environment in the litter box, reducing the risk of bacterial growth and unpleasant odors.

Consumers are more inclined to ease up the process of cleaning cat urine and feces through clumped litter owing to better scoopability and odor control. In addition, the rising availability of product varieties, including clay-based ultra and standard clumping, and biodegradable premium ultra-clumping, are likely increasing the adoption of clumping cat litter. Cat owners have the option to choose between the aforementioned product offerings, and their increasing availability is contributing to the segment’s growth. 

Conventional Cat Litter Market Analysis And Forecast

This makes it an attractive option for pet owners who are cost-conscious or have multiple cats and need larger quantities of litter. According to a PetSafe site, the typical cost of clay-based conventional cat litter that requires to be replaced weekly is roughly USD 0.50., whereas, the average price of clumping litter is around USD 0.75 to USD 1.30. Clumping litter requires daily scooping with monthly replacement. The cost-effectiveness associated with conventional cat litter is expected to drive product sales in the market.

Another factor driving the adoption of conventional cat litter is its availability. Conventional litter is widely available in various stores and pet supply outlets, making it easily accessible to pet owners. The convenience of being able to purchase it locally or online without any specific requirements or limitations appeals to many cat owners. In addition, owing to increasing consumer awareness about health risks associated with dust particles, dust-free non-clumping litter is becoming popular among cat owners. Litters that minimize dust can help improve air quality in the home and reduce respiratory issues in both cats and their owners.
