Japan Retail - October 2016

24 October 2016

Stable rental trends from last year have continued through mid-2016. Slight moderations in 1/F rents are offset by growth in non-1/F rents, resulting in little overall movement. A late uptick in consumer confidence and retail sales may hint at mild increases ahead. Chinese "bakugai" appears to have fallen off due to new import duties in China, but the long-term trend for tourist spending is still positive.

Improvements in household spending and an increase in overseas tourists are tailwinds for the overall retail industry. Retail sales efficiency is on the rise and is expected to pick up further, especially in large cities. This will in turn lead to an improvement in rental affordability, and rental levels are likely to rise.

Japan continues to urbanise, with its population gravitating towards its largest cities and sleeper towns. Key high-street retail destinations and suburban shopping centres are therefore well positioned to benefit from the recent economic revival catalysed by Prime Minister Abe’s cabinet and the Bank of Japan.
