Japan electronics industries – Summary
Japan’s electronics manufacturers combined are about as large as the Netherlands economically and are facing a period of restructuring, while at the same time they acquire companies abroad in an effort to globalize. Japan’s electronic component sector occupies about 30% – 40% of the global electronic devices market, and are generally better positioned than Japan’s electrical conglomerates, although these also face their own challenges. The report reviews and analyses Japan’s top 8 electronics manufacturers, and Japan’s top 7 electronic component makers, as well as several related companies, and an analysis of the industry sectors.
