Executive Summary

Dec 2018
PROSPECTS
Convenience remains a key consideration in packaging choices

Due to busy lifestyles, Japanese consumers are increasingly inclined to choose sauces, dressings and condiments products that offer greater convenience. Over the forecast period, manufacturers will continue to stimulate this trend by developing and adopting packaging solutions that help to reduce meal preparation times and provide greater ease of use in terms of handling, storage and disposal.

Trend towards smaller pack sizes set to continue

The general shift towards smaller pack sizes in sauces, dressings and condiments looks set to continue over the forecast period. This shift is partly the result of demographic factors.

Consumers favour packaging solutions that keep products fresh for longer

In line with shrinking household sizes and increasingly busy lifestyles, Japanese consumers are showing growing interest in sauces, dressings and condiments packaging formats that can keep product contents fresh for longer. In 2017, Kewpie Corp sought to tap into this trend by developing a new packaging solution that has extended the shelf life of its Kewpie Mayonnaise brand from 10 to 12 months.
