A recent study, conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the Japan bottled water market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period of 2022-2028. Japan bottled water market is flourishing at a high rate because of the increasing water pollution levels and declining access to safe drinking water in the country, which is prompting Japanese citizens to shift towards bottled water. The increasing health consciousness among consumers is also acting as a major driving factor for market growth. Furthermore, with increasing market scope, the industry players are launching a wide range of bottled water and are significantly focusing on improving their distribution channels to boost the productâ€™s accessibility, thereby propelling the Japan bottled water market forward. However, increasing concerns surrounding environmental pollution by single-use plastic water bottles may act as a major restraining factor to this market during the forecast period.
Declining Water Quality Levels in Japan Anticipated To Drive the Market Growth During the Forecast Period
Japan is one of the countries that offer exceptionally clean and drinkable tap water. However, several instances of declining water quality that have affected the trust of its citizens have emerged in recent years. It has been reported that some tap water contained radioactive materials, making it unsafe for babies to drink. Additionally, increasing acidity levels have adversely affected Japan’s lakes, rivers, and surrounding waters as a result of industrial pollutants. Thus, the pollution levels in the surface water of rivers and streams significantly affect people’s access to safe drinking water. Due to these factors, the demand for bottled water is projected to surge across Japan during the forecast period.
Increasing Spending on Advertisement and Marketing Boosting Japan Bottled Water Market Growth
Advertisements and marketing campaigns play an important role in driving sales in any industry. The same holds true for Japan’s bottled water market. Japanese players lavishly invest in these strategies to boost their market sales. Bottled water appeals primarily to working adults between the ages of 25 and 44. Therefore, the market players offer attractive packaging to attract consumers. They also establish partnerships with offices, sponsor events, and offer their products as refreshments during charitable events, etc.
