Japan Online grocery Market Overview, 2028

The Japan online grocery market was valued at more than USD 45.30 Billion in 2022, based on the availability of online payment options.

In recent years, the online grocery business in Japan has grown quickly, spurred by factors like convenience, changing consumer behaviour, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Rakuten is a prominent player in Japan's online grocery sector, operating the Rakuten Seiyu Netsuper platform in collaboration with Walmart-owned supermarket chain Seiyu. Amazon, Aeon, and Ito Yokado are among the other key participants. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically accelerated the expansion of Japan's online grocery sector as more consumers choose home delivery to decrease their risk of virus infection. Furthermore, the Japanese government has introduced a "cashless rebate" programme to encourage online purchasing, including online grocery shopping, which has bolstered the sector even further. In comparison to other nations, such as the United States or Europe, online grocery shopping in Japan has a comparatively brief history. The Japanese e-commerce business Rakuten developed the first online grocery store in Japan, "Net Grocer Japan," in 1998. It wasn't until the mid-2000s that online grocery shopping gained hold in Japan, partly due to the success of Rakuten's online marketplace and the increasing popularity of smartphones and mobile apps. Rakuten created "Rakuten Supermarket," a dedicated online grocery shopping platform that offers a large choice of products at low prices, in 2008. Other significant companies in Japan's online grocery sector quickly followed, including Amazon, which debuted its "Amazon Fresh" food delivery service in Japan in 2016, and Aeon, which introduced its "Aeon Online" platform in 2018. According to the research report "Japan Online Grocery Market Overview, 2028," published by Bonafide Research, the Japan online grocery market was valued more than USD 45.30 billion in 2022. The rate of internet penetration in Japan has gradually increased, as more individuals acquire access of the internet and become more comfortable with online purchasing. Furthermore, as disposable incomes rise, more Japanese can afford the convenience and time savings provided by online grocery shopping. Furthermore, the development of sophisticated delivery infrastructure, including collaborations with logistics businesses and the use of drones and robots for delivery, has increased the reliability and convenience of online grocery shopping in Japan. Furthermore, online grocery shopping gives buyers access to specialty products that might not be available in traditional stores. This has opened up new avenues for both consumers and businesses to investigate new items and markets. Furthermore, with increased environmental and sustainability concerns, many Japanese consumers are resorting to online grocery shopping to lessen their carbon footprint. Online shopping can help cut emissions and encourage a more sustainable lifestyle by minimising motor vehicle journeys to the grocery store.
