What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Consumption frequency and product selection within the Bakery & Cereals sector in Japan is critically linked to factors such as age-specific needs, lifestyle needs, and consumer taste and preferences.

ReasonsToBuy
Japanese consumers prefer to purchase staple goods such as Bread & Rolls and Breakfast Cereals from Convenience Stores and Hypermarkets & Supermarkets. However, elderly consumers prefer to shop at local Convenience stores, providing an opportunity for this channel as the population ages. Working women, the other large consumer group, are time-poor, and therefore tend to frequent large shopping malls less often. The purchase frequency of Food & Grocery products will grow fastest in Convenience stores.

Though Japanese consumers enjoy traditional food, their busy lives and an increasing number of single person households have contributed to demand for quick and easy meals that are purchased either at retail outlets or eaten at fast food chains offering traditional or western fast food.

The value of Breakfast Cereals is growing quickly in Japan, at a projected CAGR of 3.5% during 2007-2017, as a result of a combination of demand for a healthier breakfast, the influence of US culture, and the marketing power of large manufacturers.

Japan is one of the fastest aging nations among developed countries. Consumers above the age of 65 accounted for 24% of the population in 2012, while children aged 14 and under made up only 13% of the population. Marketers face the choice of targeting Japan's growing older population, and their specific nutritional needs and consumption habits, or attempting to appeal to younger consumers.

Bread & Rolls accounted for 40% of the total packaging materials used in Japans Bakery & Cereals sector in 2012, driving significant demand for Flexible Packaging Bags/Sachets with Plastic Tie closures.
