Share Article

Significant barriers to foreign IP video products identified; key strategies to overcome barriers identified and shared

Today, IPVideoMarket.info announces a new report examining the Japanese Video Surveillance Market ( http://ipvideomarket.info/report/japanese_video_surveillance_market_guide_released ).

This report finds that, despite being one of the largest markets in the world, Japan is one of the most difficult for Western companies to understand and succeed. Not only are US common sense and practices not shared in Japan, they can often make things worse.

Key Findings of the report include:

  • Whereas most western markets tend to be free-for-alls, adhering to Japan's much more rigid market structure is crucial.
  • Whereas most western markets will jump at new technology, the Japanese market is much more concerned about other factors.
  • Whereas many western markets will accept English language products with minimal translation, Japanese standards are much more rigorous.

"Without significant research or guidance, the Japanese market may certainly seem to be irrational, incomprehensible, frustrating, and even backwards to foreigners attempting to do business," states the Author of the Guide, Michael Berman.

"This outstanding research will help global video surveillance business to uncover problems and plan optimal strategies for succeeding in Japan," states John Honovich, founder of IPVideoMarket.info. "This report is another example of the high level of information and analysis that we are committed to fostering."
