About the Report
Japan’s pet industry is one of the largest in the world, worth over JPY1.65 trillion (Euro1.2 billion) at retail value. Unlike many product categories in Japan, pet products are unusual since foreign manufacturers, especially in pet food, have the largest market shares rather than domestic Japanese companies. This report focuses on pet care, supply and accessories for cats and dogs. These segments were worth combined JPY126.9 billion (Euro943 million) in 2020 and are forecast to grow further. Today there are more cats than dogs in Japan. Also, the Coronavirus pandemic has led to an increase in the number of new dog and cat owners.
