With the markets opening up due to liberalization and global marketing, people from all over the world can buy electronics from any country. Just a decade ago, an American would find it difficult to buy electronic goods made in Japan or Taiwan or China. However, today it is quite simple and even feasible to buy electronic goods made from these countries.
Japan is known for its technological innovation and enhancements over other countries. It is a leading nation in scientific research and is well known for its research in technology and machinery. It has more than seven hundred thousand researchers, who share a US $130 billion budget, which is the third largest budget for research in the world. Japan has made prominent contributions in the field of technology in electronics, machinery, automobiles and metals and semiconductors.
Today, most of the electronic giants are based out of Japan. Companies like Sony, Panasonic, NEC, Fujitsu, Toshiba, etc. have Japanese origins. The Japanese world was completely devastated after the Second World War. However, they come along strongly with the principle of kieretsu.
Before globalization became popular, Japanese products were either imported into other countries, or even smuggled by unscrupulous characters. However, with globalization, the Japanese electronic and other companies are few of the top most companies in the world today.
With Japanese companies setting up manufacturing units, retailing and whole sale agents all over the world, one does not have to worry about the sales and service of the electronics and gadgets available in Japan. Most Japanese companies have a presence in the major countries, cities, and states of the world. So, it would be simpler for anyone to buy Japanese electronic products and get them serviced, if they do not work.
Japanese electronics companies are so famous for their quality that many local companies collaborate with them and indulge in technology sharing, ideas sharing and come up with better quality products for the end consumer.
