About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Ready meals demonstrated 4% growth in current value terms, reaching ¥1,742.0 billion, in 2014, with its convenience appreciated by more consumers. Ready meals cost more than preparing meals from scratch using the necessary ingredients. However, there has been growth in the number of consumers who prefer to pay more to save time, rather than cost, due to rising numbers of busy consumers. There has been growth in the number of females who continue to work after marriage and childbirth in order to support households. Furthermore, there has also been growth in the number of single females and males who do not get married. These consumers particularly value the convenience of ready meals as they often need to work long hours and have little time to prepare meals themselves.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Ready meals remains a fragmented market, with all the top players holding less than a 10% value share in 2014. The top three players are major operators of convenience store chains, 7-Eleven Japan, FamilyMart and Lawson, due to the convenience and product variety offered. Convenience stores have the widest variety of bento boxes. In addition, these stores are found at convenient locations for consumers, such as near workplaces, schools and homes. Furthermore, convenience stores provide facilities to microwave ready meals for consumers and help consumers to eat quickly without any preparation when they get back to their workplaces or homes.

PROSPECTS

  • Ready meals is expected to post a 1% CAGR in constant value terms over the forecast period, due to the convenience afforded by such products. The convenience of ready meals to easily and quickly prepare meals will drive growth in sales over the forecast period. Working females who need to take care of their families and working males and females in single-person households are expected to continue growth over the forecast period and this will increase the number of busy consumers who do not mind paying more to save time when preparing meals. This will result in a continuous increase in sales of ready meals. However, the pace of growth is likely to be slow due to the overall decline in the Japanese population.
