Summary
Japan's yogurt market has been seeing steady growth, at 6.82% CAGR between 2007 and 2015, which is a higher rate than other major categories in the dairy sector such as milk and cheese. The growth has been supported by increasing health issues among Japanese consumers, and yogurt has been established in Japan as a healthy food. In particular, functional yogurt, featuring specific lactic acid bacteria for specific health benefits, has seen major developments in the category, contributing to the sales growth.
