In Japan, the year-over-year change in Retail sales compares the aggregated sales of retail goods and services during a certain month to the same month a year ago.

Latest Updates

Retail sales in Japan increased 1.9% YoY in November 2021, rising for the second month in a row and beating market expectations for a 1.7% increase. Daily Covid cases in Japan continued to decline through November, encouraging consumers to spend more on goods and services. The government lifted curbs in September and has not reinstated them, except for strict border controls to stop the spread of the new omicron variant. The government also approved a record $940 billion budget for fiscal 2022 in December, a week after the Bank of Japan maintained ultra-loose monetary policy in a bid to further support the economy. The pick up in retail activity came mainly from a rise in sales of fuel (29.2%) and food & beverage (4.1%); while falling sales were seen from motor vehicles (-14.1%) and machinery & equipment (-10.6%).
