Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?
"Consumer Attitudes and Online Retail Dynamics in Japan, 2013" is the result of Canadean's extensive market research covering the online retail industry in Japan. It provides the magnitude, growth, share, and dynamics of the online retail market in Japan. It is an essential tool for companies active across Japan's online retail value chain and for new companies considering entry into Japan's online retail market. It provides data for historic and forecast online retail sales, and also includes the business environment and country risk related to Japan's online retail environment. By examining best practice from the leading national large-scale online retailers (but specifically excluding the likes of Amazon, whose sites are well-known and vary little by country), as well as reviewing innovative approaches from smaller retailers, the report provides insights and ideas about how best to approach growing online sales for your business.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The traditional retail sector was disrupted by the natural disasters, resulting in a shortage of consumer products. Due to the disrupted supply chain of the Brick and Mortar stores, slow reconstruction work, and a lack of connectivity, consumers started to shop online even for daily amenities such as rice and water.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Demographics and changing consumer lifestyles play a pivotal role in the expansion of online retailing in Japan. An aging population, shrinking household size, and an increase in the number of working women are factors driving online sales in Japan. The current demographics need convenience and enjoyment and many e-retailers are applying the concept of shopping with fun.
