Dog and Cat Food Packaging in Japan - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Apr 10 2015

Dog and cat food packaging off-trade volume sales increased marginally in 2014 to reach 2.4 billion units. However, this represented decline, compared with the 2.6 billion units sold in 2009. The consumption of dog food, especially, declined over the review period in Japan, primarily due to the falling pet dog population. Japan’s dog population fell from 13.1 million in 2008 to 10.5 million in 2014. Moreover, the medium and large dog populations tended to decline at a faster pace than the small dog population. More pet owners chose small breeds because they are better suited to living in apartments and other small residential spaces. This trend was backed by the country’s growing urbanisation and ageing population. Elderly people prefer to smaller breeds as they tend to have a longer life span and are easier to care for than larger dogs.

Industry Prospects

The pet dog population in Japan is expected to continue declining over the forecast period. This will have a big impact on the total consumption of dog food in Japan. The pet dog population is projected to decline to 9.6 million in 2019, while medium and larger breeds are projected to see a faster decline in number than small dogs. Dog and cat food packaging is set to post slight year-on-year off-trade unit volume growth over the forecast period. This is partly due to the increasing selection of packaging with individually-wrapped portions inside.
