The Japan Pet Food Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period (2020-2025). The main driver for the market is the humanization of pets wherein human characteristics are ascribed to pets and they are treated similarly. This trend resulted in an increased focus on pet health, nutrition, weight, and overall wellness. This is forcing manufacturers to produce high quality foods with an eye on natural and organic content. This focus on specificity is increasing the unit price of the product thereby countering the reduced volumes sales.
