Exploring direct trading relationships between manufacturers and large retailers in Japan


Lottanti von Mandach, Stefania (2013). Exploring direct trading relationships between manufacturers and large retailers in Japan. Electronic Journal of Contemporary Japanese Studies, 13(3):online.

Abstract

Despite the importance for foreign firms trying to tap the Japanese consumer market, the question whether large retailers in Japan have started to source a greater share of their products directly at manufacturers has been largely ignored by studies on the Japanese distribution system. This exploratory study contributes to fill this gap. Contrary to the widespread belief, the findings of this study suggest that retailer-initiated direct trading relationships with manufacturers in Japan did not significantly increase between 1990 and 2005.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
