In the electronics doldrums | The Japan Times – During the 1990s, Japan’s electronics industry made as great a contribution to the nation’s economic growth as automakers. In the latter half of that decade, the electronics sector alone had a trade surplus close to ¥10 trillion a year. After the turn of the century, however, it started showing signs of decline and its trade balance turned into the red in 2013. Statistics for that year showed that electronics components and devices scored a trade surplus of ¥2.9 trillion, but trade in finished electronics products incurred a deficit of ¥3.7 trillion. – and with that drop has come a resulting decline in quality in products from countries that substituted Japan in the global supply chain. Made in China means ‘a little bit shit’. More in Japan.
