ZOOMARK INTERNATIONAL 2017 – THE NO-BORDER PET MARKET

More than one Italian out of three owns at least one pet; almost two thirds of them (63.1%) keep at least one dog and slightly less than a half (43%) one or more cats. According to the Assalco-Zoomark 2015 Report there are about 60.5 million pets in Italian households, of which 14 million cats and dogs, 13 million birds, 30 million fishes and about 3 million reptiles, rodents and other small animals.

The Italian market for pet food and care products is very strong and set to further grow in both constant value and volume terms. In 2014 the pet food industry alone recorded a combined turnover of euro 1,830 million, with a total volume of 544,000 tons sold and a positive trend resulting in a significant growth of 2.4% compared to the previous year.
Zoomark International 2015 featured 615 exhibitors, of which 65% were foreign companies, and attracted nearly 23,000 qualified international buyers, of which 6.773 coming from 85 foreign countries (+15% compared to the previous show).
