New Consumer Goods market report from Euromonitor International: "Cat Food in Belgium"


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/06/2014 -- Belgiums pet cat population continued to grow during 2013, in contrast with the decline recorded in the country?s pet dog population. This positive trend in the cat ownership subsisted over the entire review period and was the result of one major influence. Cats are simply easier to keep than dogs, especially for those living in urban households, the majority of whom live in flats and apartments with either no outdoor space or a very limited access to outdoor space. The ongoing rise in the number of cats being kept as pets in Belgium is expected to continue building during 2014. As a result, volume sales of cat food are also expected to increase marginally during 2014, while current value sales are expected to increase by 3%.
