DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, September 22, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Driven by Growing Pet Adoption Across the Globe, Demand for Cat Litter Market is expected to increase to over 5.3% CAGR between 2021 and 2031. The increased spending by cat owners on care products will lead to an increasing demand for cat litter.

Some of the major companies operating in the cat litter market rely heavily on e-commerce platforms to establish their global presence. On this basis, market players are investing heavily in promotional activities and new product launches to appeal to cat owners.

The demand for natural cat litter is growing exponentially. This can be attributed to the growing number of cat owners who are increasingly adopting natural cat litter such as plant fiber litter. Growing environmental awareness has also boosted the adoption of recyclable and eco-friendly cat litter.

As a result, the demand for pine, walnut and corn cat litter is increasing. Guided by this, some of the major players in the market are investing in research initiatives to provide eco-friendly cat litter, also available at an affordable price. For example, Yesterday’s News, a brand of Nestlé Purina, makes unscented cat litter from post-consumer waste derived from newspapers.
