Driving Factors

The CEP market has been fueled by the exponential growth of e-commerce in Japan. Online retailers and marketplaces rely heavily on CEP services to quickly and efficiently fulfill customer orders, and the rise in urbanization and changing consumer lifestyles has created a demand for faster and more convenient delivery options. CEP firms are constantly innovating to meet these changing customer expectations. Furthermore, the integration of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotic process automation has revolutionized the CEP market. These advancements have increased operational efficiency, improved tracking capabilities, and shortened delivery times. The growth of Japan trade has increased cross-border shipments. CEP providers are critical in facilitating seamless international deliveries, thereby increasing trade volumes and revenue.


Restraining Factors

The CEP market is governed by several regulatory frameworks, including customs regulations, import/export restrictions, and data protection legislation. Compliance with these regulations can be complex and time-consuming, posing challenges for market participants, and last-mile delivery, which involves transporting packages from the distribution center to the final destination, can be logistically difficult, particularly in densely populated urban areas. Congestion, limited parking, and strict delivery time frames can all hamper operational efficiency.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the business-to-consumer (B2C) segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the business, the Japan CEP market is segmented into business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C). Among these, the business-to-consumer (B2C) segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The expansion of the e-commerce sector and an increase in customer awareness are likely to drive the B2C segment. This is expected to fuel the courier express and parcel market during the forecast period. The focus is shifting from business to business (B2B) to business to consumer (B2C) due to increased demand for e-commerce businesses. Furthermore, there has been an increase in cross-border online shopping and e-commerce sales.


  • In 2022, the domestic segment accounted for a significant revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the destination, the Japan CEP market is segmented into domestic and international. Among these, the domestic segment has a significant revenue share over the forecast period. The distribution channels for consumer goods and industrial products are very different. Due to limited space and dense urban populations, small retail stores have been and continue to be dominant points of consumer sales. As a result, retailers frequently stock limited quantities of a product, and wholesalers must deliver small quantities of a product more frequently. The Japanese cultural preference for doing business face-to-face, as well as loyalty or a sense of obligation in relationships, keep this system in place, but the costs of this less efficient distribution system are passed on to the consumer in the final price of the product.


  • In 2022, the services segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the end user, the Japan CEP market is segmented into services, wholesale and retail trade, manufacturing, and construction. Among these, the services segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The services segment is responsible for product trading between the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) units across different regions.
