Executive Summary

Feb 2019
PROSPECTS
Lack of new house completions to negatively affect dishwashers in Japan

More than three quarters of dishwashers purchased by consumers in Japan are in a built-in format. This means that new house completions exert a significant influence on the category as a whole.

Formats remain limited in dishwashers

Throughout the review period, only two dishwasher formats were available in Japan, namely table-top and dishdrawer. The limited kitchen area in Japanese houses constrains the potential for format development, and the dishdrawer format benefits from being considered to be the most space-efficient option.

Connectivity is still negligible in dishwashers

Japan has a low ratio of connected to non-connected major appliances compared with other major developed markets. Most, if not all, dishwashers in Japan are not connected and this situation is likely to persist throughout the forecast period.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Highly consolidated category

Dishwashers in Japan is very consolidated, with leaders, Panasonic and Rinnai, jointly accounting for 92% of volume sales. Panasonic is the only company that offers both freestanding and built-in formats in Japan.

Lack of competition might constrain product innovation in dishwashers

The large and relatively stable market shares of Panasonic and Rinnai could create a situation in which both parties are reluctant to disturb the status quo in dishwashers. The negligible connectivity in dishwashers in Japan could result, in part, from a lack of competition in the category.
