The Japan pet food market was valued at $xx million in 2021 and is expected to reach $4451.74 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 1.23% in terms of value over the forecasted period. In terms of volume, the Japan pet food market was valued at xx kilotons in 2021 and is anticipated to reach 491.01 kilotons by 2028, progressing at a CAGR of -1.05%. The base year considered for the studied market is 2021, and the forecasting years are from 2022 to 2028.

The main driver fueling the pet food market in Japan is the increase in consumer spending on pet food. While a rise in the country’s older population results in an increasing need for companionship, this aspect significantly increases the expenditure on pets’ food as well as health. Furthermore, with a surge in disposable incomes, families in Japan are also looking after their pets with high-quality pet food.

On the other hand, with the reduction in living space in urban households, the trend of adopting small and exotic pet breeds has increased. Such breeds require premium food for improved health and overall body balance, thus raising pet owners’ spending on food. Besides, this factor also presents the premium pet food segment with eminent growth opportunities.

However, the Japan pet food market faces numerous challenges, including the high cost of raw materials in the pet food industry. On account of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cost of pig herds in exporting countries like China, Germany and the United Kingdom has increased, thereby leading to an acute shortage of pork.

Raw materials like soya, fish, flours, and others are regarded as the main ingredients required for the production of pet food such as dry, wet and treats, and mixers and for all pets like dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, and others. However, top exporting countries are experiencing a shortage of flours, an important component of organic and vegan pet food. With the augmenting outbreak rates, leading manufacturing countries like the United States are also facing shipping issues, which in turn has substantially increased the prices of pet food in Japan. Hence, these factors are likely to hinder the country’s pet food market.
