About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Ready meals posted retail current value sales growth of 4% in 2015 as the trend towards busier lifestyles in Japan continued to strengthen consumer appreciation for the convenience of these products. Growth in the number of working women in Japan further bolstered demand, and encouraged major manufacturers to launch new products specifically targeted at this consumer group. Ready meals also remained very popular among male consumers, who showed increasing interest in healthier products.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Ready meals remained fragmented in 2015, with no company holding an overall retail value sales share of more than 9%. Japan’s top three convenience stores operators, 7-Eleven Japan Co Ltd, FamilyMart Co Ltd and Lawson Inc, held a combined retail value share of 20%. These companies continued to benefit from the fact that consumers frequently purchase ready meals while on-the-go. They also benefited from the fact that consumers commonly purchase ready meals from the retail outlets that are closest to their homes or workplaces, which are often convenience stores. As well as having a location advantage, convenience stores operators offer the widest variety of bento boxes, put significant effort into product design and launch a number of new products almost every week. All of this means that consumers perceive chilled ready meals purchased from chained convenience stores outlets to be an extremely handy option.

PROSPECTS

  • With strong performances projected for prepared salads, frozen ready meals and frozen pizza, ready meals retail value sales at constant 2015 prices are expected to grow at a CAGR of 2% over the forecast period. The convenience factor will remain one of the biggest attractions of ready meals, as consumer lifestyles in Japan are becoming increasingly hectic and the numbers of single-person and dual-income households in the country are on the rise. Retail value growth at constant 2015 prices should also be bolstered by the emergence of new premium products, which are likely to appeal to busy consumers who want sumptuous meals but do not have the time to go to restaurants or to cook for themselves.
