I can provide you with the retail value of soy sauce sales in the
United States for the years 1998 and 1980.

Would these figures be of your interest?

Lokking for the most up-to-date numbers.
1980 is woefully out of date as well as 1998.
Thank you for trying.

Perhaps the information below will work for you. The figures can be
used to obtain a ballpark estimate of the U.S. soy sauce market.

Kikkoman, that has global sales in the region of $2 billion (?1.5
billion), is best known for the 400 million litres of soy sauce,
brewed from soybeans, wheat and salt, that it supplies to the global

?According to Mogi, Kikkoman expanded its business into the United
States in 1973 after demand in Japan had leveled off, and at present
operations overseas account for 22% of the company's sales and half
its total profits. Sales in the United States make up some 80% of
total foreign sales and 40% of the company's profits. Additionally, he
notes, US sales have grown at an annual rate of 10% over the past 30
years, giving Kikkoman a 56% share of a market in which its nearest
competitor does not even have 30%.?
