Despite one of the lowest pet food market penetration rates, China still accounts for a huge pet population. This underlies the volume sales potential of the market and run counter to the notion of market saturation. In 2014, the market was valued at $496.6 million dollars and is expected to grow into an $841.9 million dollar market by 2020, growing at an impressive CAGR of 9.2%.

The traditional notion of growing affluence and aggressive consumer nature is being challenged by the recent consumption patterns. The Chinese market is replicating the wise choice patterns of the developed countries albeit at a faster and increasing pace. The demographic change is very crucial driver here with a rapidly aging population and increasing number of families deciding on no kids, two very clear social indicators for buying pets. The advantage of the market is in its very high population numbers, with no more than 7% of the households owning a pet. These numbers combined with the high inflow of foreign goods are a very positive indicator for the market. This dependence on foreign goods has become more of a necessity for Chinese due to the domestic confidence erosion after the melamine and pet food scandals. The lonely life that is associated with the anonymity of the urban life is also cited as a major reason for the purchase of pets and taking good, professional care for them.

The market is segmented based on the product type, animal type, pricing and sales channels. Pet Meal and Treats together accounted for over 85% of the market share in terms of volume. The market for organic products is on the rise, due to higher demand for diets with natural ingredients from the health aware consumers. This market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% for the next 5 years. Changing lifestyles of the owners made them prefer similar healthier diets for their furry companions. This resulted in a spike for grain-free diets and the segment is expected to grow at a considerable CAGR of 6% during the forecasted period. Dog food in China accounted for around XX% of the market while that of cat constituted over XX% market. Dog food registered revenue $ XX million in 2014 and is expected to touch $ XX million by 2020 with an estimated CAGR of X%. Cat food market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR of X%. However, increased canine pets from foreign immigrants are expected to boost the sales of dog food with a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecasted period.
