Key Market Trends
Modern Households Leading to Demand for Frozen Foods
The Demand for chilled/frozen foods is increasing as a solution for the modern age families, such as the independent elderly citizens, increase in dual-income households and single people along with the danger of food loss, and increasing overall labour shortages in the food and beverage industry.
According to the Japan Frozen Foods Association, the domestic consumption of frozen foods in 2018 was 2,893,299 tons (up 1.3% year-on-year) while the per capita consumption was 22.9 kg. Along with this, there is a worldwide explosion in Japanese food, especially agricultural products in recent years. As the population of Japan ages, the shift on healthy life expectancy is a common desire of the people aiding the overall sale of frozen products significantly increase in the supermarkets, hypermarkets and drugstores.
Growth of Pharmaceutical Sector in Japan
Japan is one of the largest pharmaceutical markets in the world, especially due to its ageing population. It is also among the major producers and importers of advanced medical facilities backed by the active government initiatives for the promotion of generic drugs.
The country's native biologics sector has now gained the second position after the USA. Coupled with the government's focus on supporting lower-cost copycat products, this entails a huge opportunity for bio-similars. While innovative drugmakers have long benefited from generous exclusivity periods in Japan, the country is catching up with other mature markets in terms of generics penetration, with a rapidly increasing share of the market held by copycats. The confidence of the system is reflected by the fact that domestic drugmakers are increasingly going global with their products, with the share of overseas sales of the top Japanese companies rising steadily increasing the demand for cold chain storage and transportation facilities.
