About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Direct selling in Japan has faced continuous decline since 2001. Value sales dropped from ¥2,473 billion in 2001 to ¥1,540 in 2015. The fall was due to several factors.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Japan Consumers Cooperate Union, widely known as Co-op, retained its leading position in 2015 with an expanded 25% value share. Co-op is one of the oldest direct selling players in Japan, widely recognised and used by a wide variety of consumers. The strong advantage of the union in today’s consumer landscape is that it has a lot of loyal customers in the senior segment. Particularly in recent years Co-op has reinforced engagement with senior consumers from various aspects, including retailing and welfare. Japan is facing a challenge with shopping refugees of senior consumers, especially in suburban areas, and Co-op is expected to play an important role in improving the situation. For example, U-Coop, covering three prefectures in Kanto region, was offering seniors a discount of 5%, but in April 2015 the union expanded the eligibility of this system. The union has already made agreements regarding partnerships with more than 40% of local governments and organisations that check on the safety of senior consumers in each area on a weekly basis when delivery personnel visit each house.

PROSPECTS

  • Direct selling is projected to see continuous decline over the forecast period with a constant value CAGR of 2% to stand at ¥1,425 billion in 2020. Direct sellers will continue to be adversely impacted by the growth of the internet as a sales channel, with a wide variety of products at competitive prices available at any time. Although traditionally popular among older consumers, as the population ages and older Japanese become increasingly tech-savvy the internet will continue to gain popularity.
