Although still a large, valuable market, volume growth stagnated or declined in the mature pet food markets of Western Europe between 2012 and 2017. However, the value of the market grew, noted Euromonitor analysts. Price increases, premiumizaton and other retail value factors drove much of that value growth.

While Italy saw the most pet food sales growth in the region (2.45 percent), the UK, France and Germany grew by less than one percent. Meanwhile, pet food sales in the Netherlands dropped by 0.70 percent, according to Mordor Intelligence data.

Eastern Europe’s estimated pet food sales volume may reach 1.642 million metric tons in 2017, according to Euromonitor’s analysts.
