Which are some of Japan’s emerging dominant electronics companies that are already key suppliers to giant brands like Samsung, Boeing, Siemens, Apple, Tesla, Toyota and others?

If you and your company still believe that the ongoing troubles at Sony, Panasonic, Sharp, Sanyo and other well-known Japanese consumer electronics brands mean that Japan’s economy is failing and its companies are no longer important, think again. Hundreds of important but lesser-known or unknown electronics companies in Japan are highly-specialized key suppliers to the world’s most successful companies and global brands like Samsung, Boeing, Siemens, Apple, Tesla, Toyota and many many others.  Many are less than 10 years old, and most were only founded in the past 25 years. Join Jay Nelson, Senior Editor of SUCCESS STORIES: JAPAN Executive Newsletter and a leading authority on Japanese companies who appears regularly on Japan topics on CNBC TV, as he describes a few key market segments where these companies are having an impact – and also highlights a handful of firms that your company definitely needs to know about if it seeks to license its technology, collaborate on technology and R&D, or co-design or co-produce the world’s next great electronics innovations.

The webinar is targeted at EU companies seeking to sell to, license to, buy from, partner with, joint venture with, merge with, or form meaningful relationships on the corporate level with the lesser-known Japanese companies who are responsible for cutting-edge innovations in key products and brands for global corporations all over the world.

What you will learn during this webinar?

In 40 minutes from your desk, discover:

  • Why many of the world’s leading brands like Apple and Boeing are so dependent on these little-known specialist Japanese companies.
  • Various ways you can make your company better-known to the Japanese companies involved in this high-level innovation so that it can be invited to co-develop products, partner for product distribution, or sell its products in Japan.
  • Ways your company can work to raise its company and brand name(s) among key companies and their CEOs and board members who may be unfamiliar with its offerings.
  • To research and identify the companies that collectively are far more important to Japan’s success than Sony, Sanyo, Panasonic and Sharp ever were.
