Japanese retailers are set to see their vinyl wall panels go up in price.
The Wallpapers website lists the prices for the two panels on the site as 5,500 yen and 6,400 yen.
The site lists the price of the two wall panels as 8,500 to 10,000 yen.
Vinyl wall panels have been an increasingly popular item on Japanese stores, especially as the industry has grown and the price has been falling, said Hiroki Yamamoto, senior director of research at the trade group Anime Expo Japan.
“The Wallpapers site’s listing is the first indication of a vinyl wall panel price drop,” Yamamoto said.
“I have been hearing rumors for some time that the price was going to go down but no price drop has been announced.”
The prices on the sites are based on the current market.
“Wallpapers is currently in its second year of operation and will be continuing to grow in the future,” the site said.
Japanese anime fans are expected to flock to the anime stores in droves this spring, said Tatsunori Ohsumi, a Japanese animation industry analyst at Dentsu Group.
The price drop will likely affect consumers who are looking for a replacement for their vinyl panel, which is the easiest to replace.
“The prices for vinyl wall boards are already low and that’s a big problem because a lot of people are worried about the price, Yamamoto added.
The prices on Japanese wall panels can vary from a mere 1-inches to about 6 feet long and up to 3 feet wide. “
There is a small market for vinyl panel products in the world, but they are expensive, and most of them don’t meet the Japanese standard for durability and are not as strong,” Ohsubi said.

It’s not clear what will happen to Japanese vinyl wall wall panels when they’re sold out.
Japan Post said the prices will drop as the company works to find new locations for the items, which it is considering adding to its stock of vinyl wall products.
As more Japanese fans flock to their stores this spring to buy anime and manga wall panels and anime wall panels are still available on Amazon, retailers are expecting more vinyl wall product sales.
