Apart from Mars Austria, which has a minimal presence with its Trill bird food brand, other pet food in Austria has so far failed to attract multinational companies. It is still a less significant product category than other pet care categories and does not offer the leading multinationals sufficient business potential to warrant the effort and investment involved. Consequently, at the end of the review period, other pet food remained dominated by brands from minor producers and by private label products.Industry Prospects
The trends which played a key role in determining the situation in other pet food in Austria over the review period are also expected to continue making an impact during the forecast period. The increasing popularity of exotic animals and small mammals as pets is expected to continue building during the forecast period due to the busy lifestyles of the majority of Austrian people, with fewer Austrians than ever now having the time to care for a cat or a dog. Thus, the numbers of fish, small mammals and reptiles being kept as pets in Austria are expected to increase over the course of the forecast period. Nevertheless, the population of birds which are kept as house pets is expected to decline over the forecast period due to the higher amount of care required to keep these pets, which most people are simply unable to offer.Report Overview

Following several years of static and negative volume growth, during 2013 other pet food recorded very marginally positive value growth. The average price in the category increased by 1% in current terms over the course of 2013, which resulted in stronger value growth in the category during the year. Further stagnation is expected in volume terms in the category 2014. This static volume growth is set to be very much in line with the static volume CAGR recorded in the category over the entire review period. This stagnant performance is the overall result of the balance achieved between positive growth in fish food and small mammal/reptile food and declining sales of bird food.
