Retail Sales in Japan

Japan Retail Sales | Economic News & Forecasts

Japan - Retail Sales

The economy stumbled again in the third quarter, registering its second contraction this year mainly due to lower private consumption and a sharp decline in public investment. In addition, economic growth was hampered by several natural disasters in the quarter, which weighed on business activity and disrupted the country’s export capacity. The economy nonetheless appears poised to rebound in the fourth quarter, although its growth momentum may depend on external demand, notably from China, which has recently shown signs of weakening amid the Sino-American trade spat. In October, the manufacturing PMI edged up on a rebound in foreign demand and higher output—partly compensating for September disruptions—but manufacturers’ confidence weakened to a nearly two-year low, while consumer confidence also deteriorated in the month.
