Automotive

The automotive sector currently employs over 5.45 million people in Japan and is worth some 47.3 trillion yen. Both its exports and imports (mainly from the EU) are currently increasing despite Japanese consumers’ strong preference for “buying Japanese”. The sector is heavily influenced by new environmental standards, which are the most stringent in the world. Find out more about Japan's automotive sector below.
