Machine Tools

Japan is the world’s second-largest producer of machine tools. It is also the largest exporter of machine tools. Japanese strength in this sector is vital to the competitiveness of other industries given their function as ‘mother machines’, those capable of producing other machines. Detailed information on production, imports, exports and the industry’s main players is outlined in this section.
