The figures of the Spanish animal health and nutrition industry show that in 2012 this sector grew, globally, by 3.71%, although the national market rose by 0.84%. This contrasts with the higher and more sustained growth of the exports, that rose by 10.65% with respect to year 2011.

In particular, the global invoicing of the sector reached 1,093.10 million euros, in comparison with the 1,053.95 million euros invoiced during the previous year: this means 39.15 million euros more than in year 2011.

With respect to the autonomous communities (regions), the figures of this industry during year 2012 show a slight growth in all of them. The regional ranking is still leaded by Catalonia (189.73 million euros, 25.26% of the total figures), followed by Castille and Leon (85.93 million euros, 11.44%), and Aragon (72.34 million euros, 9.63%). After them come Andalusia and Galicia, whilst the last ones, in descending order, are the Balearic Islands, La Rioja, Cantabria, the Basque Country, and the Canary Islands.

With respect to the different animal species, in year 2012, the biggest growth was for Dogs and Cats, and this consolidates their third place in the list of species. Nevertheless, Swine led the ranking of species, with an invoicing of more than 252 million euros, followed by Cattle, with more than 197 million euros.
