Japan is one of the major economic powers of the world and the most developed country in the Asian region. The country leads in many sectors and is also a center of affluent consumers in the region. In recent years, Japan has been experiencing a demographic and cultural shift and is now facing a rapidly aging population. The Japanese nutrition market is a well developed market, still there is a strong need to introduce new products with more health benefits at a low cost.
In 2010, Japan accounted for 31.27% of the global functional food market and was the market leader. Demand for nutritional and dietary supplements is expected to increase but the growth rate will be very slow due to a decline in spending power; this trend is expected to continue until 2013. An increasing demand for anti-ageing, energy and skin care products boosted the demand for herbal/ traditional products in 2009.
In 2010, there was a strong demand for combination formulas and probiotics in the country. In 2006 there was a fall in retail sales of vitamins and dietary supplements, demand which recovered soon in 2007 but thereafter a slow growth rate was registered and continued even in 2011.
In 2009, the sports nutrition market had registered a slight decline of 0.23%. The decline can be attributed to the increase in cost of raw materials, especially in the protein powder segment.
