Japan crowdfunding industry

Japan crowdfunding industry has been on a high growth trajectory. According to data from Japan Crowdfunding Council, total raised funds on reward-based crowdfunding platforms had a significant jump from $1.06 Billion USD in 2018, to $1.55 Billion USD in 2019.At Dohsatsu, we project the market to have surpassed 2.0 Billion USD in 2020 as businesses turned to online fundraising to navigate the shock caused by the global pandemic.

Despite of the robust growth, global innovators from foreign countries are underwhelmingly represented as they have been slow in taking advantages of the opportunities available to raise funds and sell in Japan.

Some of the causes for the lack of traction are; Regulatory framework governing crowdfunding and importation operations in Japan, and lack of information on market insights pertaining the Japanese consumer.
