For 2035, both domestic and international demand for renovation is expected to grow. In Japan, it is expected that the renovation demand will increase in 2035 because houses which were built since the end of 1980s and the beginning of 1990s will be degraded by then. At the same time, there is concern over labor shortage because Japan's working population will be reduced by about 16% compared to the present*. This means that works currently done manually such as interior demolition and construction must be mechanized.
On the other hand, in Europe and the United States, the distribution share of used houses is larger than Japan, and the demand for work efficiency improvement in interior construction is said to be high. In addition, the population in the Southeast Asian countries is expected to increase. The demand for house construction and renovation is also said to rise and so it is essential to mechanize the work to meet such demands. Yanmar Group will develop the next-generation concept construction machine "Y-RENOVATOR" towards the arrival of such a renovation era and will promote efforts toward practical application.
