The Japanese pet market is highly directed towards dogs and cats, they had an ownership share of 11.5% and 10.1% respectively (2019).  Related to them we can find a wide variety of supplies (toys and food) and services. During the fiscal year 2022, the pet industry market size is expected to reach 1.7 trillion yen. And already Japan has had four consecutive years of the increased overall value of pet food sales, reaching over $3 billion in FY2019.
