London, UK (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Weak economic growth and squeezed disposable income leading to consumer frugality, combined with an ageing population that is necessitating the reformulation of products, present significant challenges to the Japanese savory snacks sector. In spite of this, the Japanese market was still the third-most valuable savory snacks market worldwide, having grown at a CAGR of 11.4% since 2007 to reach a value of USD 7,5382.2 million. Contemporary marketplace challenges will not halt this growth, but slow it, to a much more modest CAGR of 3.9% between 2013 and 2017.
Despite the convenience offered by snack foods often neatly meshing into the busy lives of Japanese consumers, the country’s weak economy and consumer sensitivity in price has led to manufacturers implementing pack size reduction initiatives. For instance, the number of packs sized greater than 250g will decrease from accounting for 6.9% of the savory snacks sector in 2007 to 6.5% of the sector in 2017. This price sensitivity will also provide greater opportunity for private label products. However, retailers need to develop more distinctive, premium ranges of savory snacks to become more than merely a cheap alternative to branded goods, if they are to fully capitalize on this opportunity.
