Ignition Point supports Tokyu Land Corporation's demonstration experiment to promote its pet-friendly business!

Ignition Point, a company that supports client innovation and transformation with strengths in new business creation and DX, announced today that it will support Tokyu Land Corporation as a business partner as it launches a lifestyle experiment to enrich people's lives with their pets!

Background of Support

After the Corona Disaster, the elements and values that people look for in a home have changed dramatically. As people spend more time at home and seek a life of wellbeing, the demand for pets is also on the rise.
The total size of the pet-related market in 2021 was 1,718.7 billion yen. Consumption is also increasing year by year against the backdrop of pets becoming a family member, making it a growing market that is expected to reach 1,837 billion yen by 2024*.

Tokyu Land Corporation has provided an environment for living with pets in the past, including pet-friendly properties in the urban rental residence "Comforia Shibaura Bauhaus" and pet-friendly accommodations at Tokyu Harvest Club. In this initiative, in addition to the development of housing as a hard service that facilitates living with pets, Tokyu REIM aims to realize a lifestyle of wellbeing through more detailed support by providing a complex of soft services.

At Ignition Point, we accompany our clients in their business transformation, especially in creating new business pillars, by providing a one-stop service from strategy formulation to planning, development, and implementation.

After the Corona Disaster, the factors and values that people look for in a home have changed dramatically, and with the growing trend toward wellbeing, Ignition Point began providing support for this demonstration experiment. Through market research and a fact-finding survey that included questionnaires and interviews with people living in homes provided by Tokyu Land Corporation, Ignition Point is supporting the development of new businesses focused on living with pets, for which demand is expected to grow.
