Japan’s domestic meat industry is set to surpass China’s as the largest meat-producing country in the world by 2019.
But it’s not the only one.
And, as we continue to see, the impact is going to be far more important than just the size of the market.
As we’ve discussed before, the Japanese market is still not nearly as big as the U.S. market.
That’s partly because Japan’s food is less expensive than it is in the U, and partly because Japanese companies have been investing heavily in the plant, processing, and distribution side of their business.
This year, the US. exported about 1.2 billion pounds of beef, pork, and lamb, up from less than 1 billion pounds last year, according to the U in a recent report.
That represents a whopping 24 percent increase.
The Japanese meat industry, however, is also becoming more diversified, especially with the arrival of China’s domestic market.
In 2020, for example, Japan exported more than 4.7 billion pounds, or 10.6 percent of all beef exports, according, to Reuters.
This has created a very dynamic market in which Japanese companies are competing with foreign companies and exporting more products.
But what are the effects on consumers?
According to Reuters, the market for meat in Japan is already saturated.
For a typical Japanese household, meat consumption has fallen by more than 50 percent since 2008.
According to the government, the meat consumption is now at a 25-year low, and the average Japanese household consumes about half as much meat as it did in the mid-1980s.
But it’s far from the only industry that is suffering.
In 2017, the average household in Japan consumed only 2.9 pounds of meat a day, down from 3.3 pounds in 2020.
And the number of restaurants with no meat consumption fell by more of than 70 percent between 2015 and 2020, according Reuters.
This means that Japanese restaurants have a lot less meat in their kitchens and restaurants are also less likely to serve food that is high in fat and calories, according a 2016 report by the Food Safety Institute.
But while this is bad news for the overall diet, it’s particularly bad news when it comes to meat consumption among young people.
In fact, the proportion of young people who consume more than one kind of meat has risen in Japan in the last decade, according the World Health Organization.
In addition, the number and type of meat-based products consumed in Japan have increased dramatically in recent years.
In addition, as more people are moving to cities in Japan, they’re also going out of the country to shop, according an analysis from Bloomberg.
This trend means that while the number is on the rise, the consumption is dropping, which is especially troubling given that people are increasingly looking for healthy, low-fat options in their diets.
To be sure, the biggest problem for the Japanese meat market right now is the amount of meat that’s being produced.
As a result, Japan’s exports of meat are far less than the amount that’s actually going to end up in the domestic market, accordingto Bloomberg.
In 2020, the country exported just under 1.6 billion pounds (2.5 percent of its total) of beef.
But that’s a number that’s likely to continue to fall as Japan’s population ages.
For example, the latest data from the International Food Information Council shows that the Japanese population is expected to reach 7.3 million in 2060, a figure that will drop to just over 7 million by 2060.
Meanwhile, in the United States, the domestic meat market has also grown significantly.
According the USDA, the United Kingdom’s domestic beef market is expected over the next two decades to grow from 1.7 million to 7.6 million tons, or 14 percent of total global beef exports.
Meanwhile in Germany, the export share of beef is expected in the future to be at around 30 percent.
Meanwhile, the share of lamb is expected at around 15 percent.
And while Japan is a huge market, it isn’t the only country where the domestic and foreign meat markets are converging.
The United Kingdom and Germany have also seen significant increases in the volume of meat exports, and in the European Union, the volume has also been rising.
In the United Nations, there are now over a million domestic and international beef markets, which represents about 1 in 3 of all global beef imports.
And it’s likely that this will continue to increase as the population ages and new meat-related challenges arise.
