Opportunities by Sector

Japan occupies a leading position in many sectors and as a result there are significant opportunities for EU companies engaged in many areas. Japan’s strong reputation for innovation and technology means that long-established sectors such as automotive, pharmaceutical, chemical and ICT still offer significant opportunities, as do developing sectors such as green technology, nanotechnology and robotics. The Japanese market also offers significant opportunities for European companies in the retail sector given the sheer size of its consumer base. The following chapter will provide you with a more detailed overview of Japan’s most promising sectors.
