Webinar 165: Smart Farming technology in Japan and Opportunities for EU Companies

2-03-21 | 10:30 - 11:30 AM CET

What business opportunities does the Japanese Smart Farming Technology market offer to European SMEs?

The Japanese agricultural sector faces many challenges: a low self-sufficiency rate in agricultural products, limited farmland, and the shrinking number and rising age of farmers (67 years in average). To tackle these problems, the Japanese government actively supports smart farming technologies through new laws and regulations, as well as various research and development projects. Thus, a decisive growth phase for the smart farming market in Japan is currently underway. The use of smart farming technologies and services in Japan’s agricultural sector is increasing with an almost tripled estimated sales revenue of around 44.28 billion JPY by 2025. Currently, European manufactures cover almost 60% of imported agricultural machinery and enjoy a good brand reputation in Japan, since they are known for their high-quality and advanced machines with future-oriented technology.

Facilitated by EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), the Japanese market offers interesting opportunities for European small and medium-sized enterprises especially in the field of soil cultivation and harvest preparation/ cultivation technologies such as drones and other precision farming solutions, a market sector which is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. However, when entering the Japanese market, specific challenges need to be considered carefully. This webinar will provide interested European SMEs with a sophisticated insight into the opportunities and key success factors for the Japanese smart farming market.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to newly develop or strengthen their current positions in Japan’s smart farming market.
