While the market had enjoyed special demand from at home spending amid the corona crisis until 2021, such robust demand calmed down in FY2022 as the society experienced transition to after corona. Replacing this was the recovered demand for local confectionery or pocket-size snacks & sweets, and the resume of inbound demand that started affecting affirmatively.
In particular, snacks and gummies showed favorable sales. Although FY2022 saw price revisions for a wide range of products, boosting the shipment value as a whole, snacks and gummies (including candies with gummies inside) increased the demand, which could expect high growth rate.
