Japan Rice Industry Outlook 2017-2025

Market Overview

Globally, 90.0% production of rice is in Asia, and Japan is one of the top producers and consumer of rice. Over the years Japan has been dependent upon the domestic production of rice instead of importing, but in past few years along with the exports, an increase in imports has been analyzed. The system known as gentan, which was designed to protect farmers from fluctuating prices, now has deteriorated the Japan agriculture sector, where the landowners pocket the government subsidy and keeping the fields left idle. On an average per person, rice consumption has fell down by 38.0% over the past decade owing to decreasing rice supply and growing preference for wheat and meat food. As per the government, gentan system is expected to be ruled out by 2018 that will bring out structural changes in the agricultural industry. Rice is Japan’s not only staple food but also has cultural importance and is famous for production of japonica rice variety. The technological advancement in Japan has led to heavy use of drones in spraying rice paddies. Also insect-detecting drones are under development to be used against white-backed plant-hoppers, an insect harmful to rice fields. In 2017, Japan recorded 28.0% growth in rice exports and is expected to continue its growth rate backed by the technology adaptation and roll out of gentan system.

Goldstein Research analyst forecast that the Japan rice industry is expected to grow at CAGR of 1.73% over the forecast period. The factors such as government support in rice production, favorable climatic conditions, rising number of rice processing companies are majorly impacting the growth of Japan rice industry.
