2014-04-22 03:51:02 - Starchy Roots in Japan - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
During the forecast period, the Japan starchy roots production market is expected to see a continued -2% CAGR in line with the marginal presence this food group plays in the Japanese diet. Japan´s ageing population and reliance on processed potato products, especially in foodservice, are expected to underlie this pessimistic forecast. Potato farmers will continue to look for new outlets with sweet potato making an appearance in sake, vinegar, cakes and ice cream through the end of the review period.
Other starchy roots â largely sweet potatoes, however â continue to be popular during the winter season, being consumed in both sweet and savoury dishes. Sweet potato is commonly steamed, peeled and eaten plain. It is often used as a sweet
application. Volume sales of sweet potatoes in Japan declined by 3% in 2012 as older consumers continued to eat less of these and the younger generation has moved away from them, favouring processed potato products.
- Total volume sales decline by 2% to reach 2.2 million tonnes in 2012
- Declining and ageing population hinders consumption
- Other roots declines the least, but volume sales in all categories decline by approximately 2% in 2012
- Total volume sales expected to decline at a CAGR of 2% over the forecast period
