Petfood Forum Asia:
innovation for rising
pet food markets
Pet food industry experts will address the
latest research and key topics for these
fast-growing pet food markets.
Spotlight on Asia pet food markets
Pet food sales in Asia are increasing nearly 6 percent
annually, reaching more than US$6.5 billion in 2016. Most
individual pet food markets in the region are rising by double
digits, according to Euromonitor International, thanks to overall
economic and income growth and the increasing numbers of
pet owners feeding commercial, packaged pet food.
Professionals in these markets can learn information and
tips for taking advantage of this growth during Petfood Forum
Asia 2018, scheduled for March 28, 2018. Co-located again with
Victam Asia 2018 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center, Petfood Forum Asia will feature industry experts
presenting the latest information on the human-pet bond, pet
food e-commerce, pet food ingredients, energy-efficient pet
food drying and production flexibility. Early bird registration is
available via www.PetfoodForumEvents.com/Asia.

Fast-growing pet care markets
Japan is by far the largest market in Asia, accounting for
more than half of the region's US$9.8 million dollars in pet care
sales (all pet products). Yet Japan is experiencing no growth,
according to Euromonitor, in direct contrast to other Asia-Pacific
markets. China, for example, is experiencing at least 14 percent
growth annually and has reached about US$1.5 billion in pet
food sales, according to GfK. Online pet food sales in China are
especially robust, growing over 40 percent a year.
Though other markets in Asia are small (less than US$1
billion in annual pet care sales), they are seeing growth ranging
from 10 percent in the Philippines to more than 26 percent in
India. Also registering double-digit sales increases are Thailand
(13.7 percent) and Indonesia (14 percent), with Hong Kong,
South Korea, Taiwan and Malaysia enjoying still healthy growth
rates of 8.8, 7.6, 7.6 and 6.2 percent, respectively.

Isolating pet food sales, the growth is often even more
robust. For example, Euromonitor projects that economy-priced
dry pet food in Korea will grow at 15 percent or more annually
through 2022. And as in China, e-commerce is a strong retail
channel in Korea, accounting for 30 percent of pet food sales,
second only to grocery stores at 35 percent.
