China Companion Animal Health Market Analysis Report 2021-2028 by Type, Animal Type, Diagnosis Method, Product, Indication -

·4-min read

DUBLIN, January 18, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "China Companion Animal Health Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Type (Medicine, Diagnostics), Animal Type (Dogs, Cats), Diagnosis Method, Product, Indication, and Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The China companion animal health market size is anticipated to reach USD 2.24 billion by 2028 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.3% from 2021 to 2028.

The key factors driving the market growth include rising initiatives by key market players, a growing pet population, and high usage of e-commerce channels.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the market in 2020. The adverse effects of the pandemic include supply chain bottlenecks, decreased sales & marketing initiatives, and dampened demand. However, pet ownership and expenditure continued to rise in the country during 2020.

Even during the pandemic, online sales of the pet industry showed accelerated growth after an initial slump, as reported by China Daily. Key factors identified for this growth include increasing per capita GDP and pet humanization. For instance, according to the World Bank estimates, per capita GDP in China, in 2020, was USD 10,500, notably greater than the per capita GDP of USD 8,066 in 2015 and USD 4,550 in 2010.

The rising pet population in China is a key factor driving the market growth. The RADII Media reported that in 2020, the popularity of cats as pets was growing rapidly across China. The main reason identified for this trend was cats being relatively low-maintenance pets as compared to pet dogs.

As per the Shanghai United Media Group, the preference for exotic and other companion animals is increasing among the young population in the country. Key factors fueling this growth include certain pets needing less upkeep as compared to dogs or horses. For example, geckos or small mammals require much less space, energy, and time from the pet owner as compared to mainstream pets.

Increasing usage of online channels for purchasing pet products is anticipated to propel the market in the coming years. China Daily reported that in 2019, online sales of the pet industry crossed 30 billion Yuan, or about USD 4.3 billion. 70% of the total sales were accounted for by e-commerce giants, such as Tmall and Taobao, as reported at Pet Fair Asia 2020. Key market players leveraged this opportunity to strengthen their market presence.

In February 2019, Boehringer Ingelheim, for instance, launched the first-of-its-kind flagship store by a multinational animal health company on Tmall for pet parasiticides. The store was launched to provide customers with a reliable and convenient online purchasing channel for the company's full range of pet parasiticides.
