Japan to Drive the Regional Market

In Japan, protein bars are currently one of the fastest nutrition bar categories, as consumers are inclined toward plant-based nutritional products, like protein bars. Therefore, it provides great potential for the manufactures to introduce innovative products, to cater the propelling demand. Moreover, the protein bar caters to a large mass of millennials and young age groups in the country, attributed to the changing consumer preferences and perceived fact of protein bar being superior over other snack bars. With the rise in health-conscious consumers and concerns about obesity, the protein bars category is increasingly drawing interest among Japanese consumers. The Japanese population has traditionally been health conscious and this is expected to continue in the future. More working Japanese men and women are becoming highly health-conscious and have started to eat healthy foods and engage in regular exercise. This is driving the protein bar market in the country.
