Overview of trends in the condominium and building markets in which the Daikyo Group operates and its market position.

Cumulative number of condominiums supplied in Japan

Transport and Tourism


After condominiums swiftly became common in the 1970s, the annual number supplied exceeded 100,000 units in the 1990s. However, funding to an overheated real estate sector was suppressed following the financial crisis of 2008, with the shortfall causing construction starts to plunge and the supply to drop below the 2007 peak of 227,000 units. Housing demand steadied thereafter, with supply recovering somewhat despite the impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011.

the Real Estate Economic Institute Co., Ltd.


The cumulative number of units that each ­company has supplied since establishment through 2015 were excerpted from numbers through 2002 for each company in the Real Estate Economic Institute’s Three Decades of the Japanese Condominium Market, adding that company’s ­announcements of annual sale ­numbers by ­enterprise since 2003.
The Daikyo Group has supplied a total of over 450,000 units.

Demand for existing condominiums has expanded owing to increases in condominiums in stock and a lower supply of new ones. The number of sales contracts in metropolitan Tokyo has risen in recent years. The number of sales contracts is climbing in line with increases in the ­quality of condominiums in stock.

The building management market encompasses the three key roles of cleaning, facility administration, and security services, as well as repairs, upgrades, remodeling, and other peripheral operations. Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, related construction has underpinned the market scale through increased demand related to recovery, energy conservation, and power savings. The overall market has exceeded ¥3 trillion in recent years despite few prospects for significant growth following a peak in new ­construction demand.
