The Japan pet food market is projected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.10% during 2023-2028. The changing perception of pet ownership along with the increasing awareness among pet owners, the rise in the development of organic variants, and the rising popularity of pet-related content on social media represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Pet food refers to processed extracts from plants or animals that are suitable for pets to consume. It is carefully formulated to provide a balanced blend of essential nutrients for the health and well-being of dogs. The ingredients commonly found in pet food include fish derivatives, animal derivatives, fruit and vegetable derivatives, cereal and cereal by-products, fats and oils, vitamins, and minerals, as well as other additives. This type of food offers numerous health benefits for pets, such as enhancing their immunity, maintaining a healthy weight, extending their life expectancy, minimizing the risk of skin ailments and allergies, and reducing digestive disorders. Additionally, it offers a convenient and time-saving solution for pet owners. It eliminates the need to prepare complicated homemade meals and ensures that pets receive consistent nutrition with minimal effort. The market offers various types of dog food, such as dry kibble, wet canned food, and semi-moist food.
Japan Pet Food Market Trends:
The growing trend of humanization of pets, where pets are considered part of the family, is driving the market in Japan. Additionally, the changing perception of pet ownership and the increasing awareness among pet owners about pet health have led to a higher demand for nutrient-rich and energy-dense pet food products that are both healthy and safe for consumption. In response to this, several major companies are introducing products tailored to specific breeds, ages, and sizes of pets, often in smaller, disposable, single-serve containers for the convenience of both pets and owners, thus creating a positive market outlook. Moreover, the rise in the development of organic variants prepared from ingredients grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics, is contributing to the growth of the market. Besides, the pet food market is also influenced by the trend towards healthier eating and natural ingredients in human food, which has translated to a similar demand for pet food. In line with this, the availability of pet food products at different price ranges is augmenting the market's growth. Furthermore, the inflating disposable income levels of the masses and changing consumer preferences have led to a higher demand for packaged and branded pet food products. Apart from this, the government in Japan is taking initiatives to promote the use of safe and healthy ingredients in pet food, further strengthening the market's growth. The market is further driven by the rising popularity of pet-related content on social media, veterinary recommendations, increasing pet lifespans, concerns about pet food safety, and the advent of home delivery models.
