New market study, "Japan Food & Drink Report Q2 2016", has been published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Apr 12 2016

We hold a weak outlook for Japan's food and drink industry due to existing maturity in the sector, a weak economic outlook, and unfavourable demographic dynamics that will weigh on industry growth throughout our forecast period. Innovation in categories that appeal to ageing consumers will drive growth and we expect products with functional properties to post good growth throughout our forecast period.

Key Trends & Industry Developments

Food sales (local currency) growth y-o-y in 2016 +2.7%; compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 2015-2020: +3.7%.

Non-alcoholic drinks sales (local currency) growth y-o-y in 2016: +0.5%; CAGR 2015-2020: +3.0%.

Wine and spirits will drive growth in the alcoholic drinks category.
