As the government of Japan has declared state of emergency due to pandemic COVID-19, the ecommerce market in Japan is expected to remain disrupted in the first half of 2020. The only supply of essential items is allowed in the country. Japanese are spending mostly on grocery and personal care products; even the median price of the liquid soap has risen in Japan, as citizens are shopping in bulk. COVID-19 is having a catastrophic impact on many non-essential products in Japan. People are avoiding shopping for non-essential items like Apparel, Footwear, Bags & Accessories, but we expect the situation to improve in the second half of 2020. Our research says that from 2021 onwards situation will improve a lot, and growth will again come close to double-digit CAGR.
