'About Japan' webinar series 200: Japan's Home Fashion & Furniture Market

15-11-22 | 10:30 - 11:30 AM CET

 

Is there a large home fashion and decoration market in Japan and is it worth the effort for EU companies? Especially now after the pandemic? Yes, in so many ways…

Finding new export channels is critical for any business but especially now following the Covid-19 crisis. With all businesses facing profound uncertainty about the future, flexibility, innovation and seeking out new opportunities is vital for survival. Businesses can no longer rely on customers that have supported them for the last decade; there are no guarantees, no matter how long the relationship.

Japan offers EU companies a real opportunity to find new sales. Japan has not been affected as much as many markets because the lock down has not been as severe. As a result, most economic functions continued, including the consumer economy.

Japanese consumers also have much, much higher savings levels than many markets so, even in a downturn, have more spending capacity – this is why Japan has remained one of the top five consumer economies in the last 20 years on a per capita basis In addition, Japan’s home fashion/decoration market is still quite new (for reasons explained in the seminar) so it is very fast growing – up 50% in the last decade.

As a result, Japan has a flourishing home decoration market which is one of the best in the world. Japanese demand for well-designed, high-quality and innovative furniture and home fashion brands from EU firms is very strong. In fact, because competition between retailers is intensifying, demand for new and exciting products from the EU not yet sold in Japan is increasing. There has never been a better time to sell to Japan.

The webinar targets EU home fashion, decoration and furniture firms and brands wanting to increase exports and depend less on their home market and generate revenues in what is one of the best export markets for European brands and products.
