Datagraphic: Mexican Pet Care
The strong performance of pet care in Mexico is attributable to an increase in annual disposable incomes, which have risen by 45% between 2007 and 2013. Dog and cat food account for the largest proportion of sales, while other pet products represent less than 1%. Mexico ranks fourth globally in terms of households owning a dog, with over 24.2 million dogs in 2013. The good results are also reflected in premium dog and cat food with high growth expected through to 2018.
