Japan’s wooden window imports were down 5% year-on-year in May 2016 but rose almost 17% in value compared to April figures. The increase seen in May this year lifted the value of imports close to the peak last seen in November 2015, according to the ITTO.

The Philippines, China and the U.S., in that ranking, were the main suppliers of wooden windows, together accounting for 83% of the Japan’s market share for wooden windows.
