2022 China Pet Food Virtual Mission

August 16 - 19, 2022

In the past decade, China has become one of the fastest growing pet markets in the world, as people began owning pets for companion rather for work. As of 2019, the number of pet owners in China reached 74 million, among which a total of over 90 million dogs and cats were owned, mostly in the affluent cities of Shanghai and Guangzhou. As the country with the most approved pet food facilities able to export to China, the U.S. has seen explosive growth in export to China in 2020, when the Phase One Agreement came into effect. It went from the 19th largest exporter to China in 2019 to 9th highest in 2020, and there is still a lot of potential in the market in China as pet ownership per capita is still significantly lower than countries like the U.S., and this is where pet food manufacturers from the U.S. can tap into as we look into the future.

The total pet population in Hong Kong reached 1.1 million in 2019, and has gone up as a result of COVID-19, with even more people now looking for companion from pets during lockdown and movement restrictions. Hong Kong is one of the largest pet food markets in the world, ranking as the 11th largest market for imported pet food, with nearly 50% of all pet food imported from the U.S.
