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 rose by 2.4 percent year-on-year in July 2021, above market expectations of 2.1 percent and after a 0.1 percent in the prior month. This was the fifth straight month of growth in retail trade, as consumption strengthening amid an acceleration in COVID-19 vaccinations. Sales growth quickened for both food & beverages (2.5 percent vs 0.7), fuel (27.7 percent vs 26.1 percent); while there was a rebound in sales of both general merchandise (1 percent vs -3.9 percent); and fabrics, apparel & accessories (2.9 percent vs -11.9 percent). At the same time, sales fell at a slower rate for both machinery & equipment (-2.6 percent vs -15.1 percent); and others (-4.6 percent vs -7.2 percent). By contrast, sales slowed for both motor vehicles (3.1 percent vs 12.2 percent); and medicine & toiletry (0.6 percent vs 0.8 percent). On a monthly basis, retail sales gained 1.1 percent in July, after a 3.1 percent increase in June.
