The American Pet Products Association (APPA) has released its latest figures on pet spending, with overall spending in the pet industry at $69.51 billion in 2017, higher than ever before, the association reports. This is up 4 percent from the 2016 figure of $66.75 billion. About a quarter of the total spent—$17 billion—went to veterinary care.

美国宠物产品协会(APPA)发布了关于宠物消费的最新统计,2017年宠物产业的消费额达到695.1亿美元,达到历史最高。这比2016年的667.5亿美元高出了4%。其中1/4归属于宠物医疗护理。

APPA’s annual report covers pet spending in the categories of food, supplies/over-the-counter (OTC) medications, veterinary care, live animal purchases and other services.

APPA的年度报告中的宠物消费项目涵盖了宠物食品、宠物用品、非处方药物(OTC)、医疗护理、宠物买卖以及其他的服务。

Pet industry spending breakdown

宠物消费支出细节

Spending on pet food continues to be the highest source of dollars spent, with spending on dog food specifically making up a majority of sales, the APPA says. Interest in high-end, premium pet food and treats continues to drive spending in the pet food category, but as owners increasingly value-shop for these items, total food spending growth is slowing down.

宠物食品的消费所占比重依旧是最高的,APPA称狗粮的销售占了其中的大部分。由于人们对高端宠物食品和宠物待遇的追求,使得宠物食品持续引领着宠物产业的消费,但因为越来越多的主人开始重视这些商品,食品支出的增长速度正在减缓。

Veterinary care spending remains the second-highest source of spending in the pet industry at $17.07 billion, up 7 percent from 2016. The APPA anticipates 6.9 percent growth in 2018 veterinary spending, exceeding growth estimates for any other category, putting veterinary care spending at more than $18 billion by the end of the year. 

宠物医疗护理依旧是宠物产业的第二大消费支出,有170.7亿美元,比2016年上升了7%APPA预测2018年宠物医疗护理将会继续增长6.9%,成为2018年所有项目支出的最高项,预测到2018年底,兽医医疗护理支出将超过180亿美元。

The third-highest source of spending is in supplies and OTC medications, which drew in $15.11 billion in 2017, the APPA says. This category includes items such as beds, collars, leashes, toys, travel items, clothing, food and water bowls, and other accessories as well as OTC medications and supplements. Pet technology products, which are popular in terms of product innovation for pets, are not yet a big market share in terms of sales, the APPA reports—although it is growing.

APPA2017年非处方药物和宠物用品的支出达到151.1亿美元,为所有支出的第三位。这些项目包括宠物床、项圈、牵引绳、玩具、旅行、衣物、饭碗及水碗还有其他附属品,也包含非处方药物(OTC)。APPA报导称,在宠物创新方面很流行的产品,也就是宠物技术产品,虽然在增长,但在宠物用品销售比重中仍然没有很大的市场份额。

The category that saw one of the highest-growth percentages in 2017 was other services, which includes things like grooming, boarding, walking, training, pet sitting, yard services and more. It came in at $6.16 billion in 2017, up 6.9 percent from 2016.  

2017年宠物产业支出另外一个有较高增长率的项目是其他服务,包括宠物美容、寄养、外遛、照护、庭院玩耍以及其他服务。2017年这项消费达到了61.6亿美元,比2016年增长了6.9%

Live animal purchases, for the first time in four years, did not decline but remained steady at $2.1 billion spent, according to the APPA.

APPA称,宠物销售消费四年来第一次没有下降,维持在21亿美元。
