Inbound Foreign Direct Investment in Mature Economies: Lessons from Japan

2018年 05月 18日

Although Japan has attracted far less foreign investment than other mature economies, it can offer insights into FDI decision-making for international firms entering countries with a shrinking domestic market and increased international competition. Using a Delphi methodology with contributions from foreign direct investors and experts, Dr. Rémy Magnier-Watanabe, associate professor in the MBA Program in International Business at the Graduate School of Business Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Tokyo, proposes a model of inbound FDI in Japan and identify four types of investors based on the nature of investments and market maturity, namely empire builders, rescuers, niche players, and cherry-pickers.

Several foreign companies can be seen to employ simultaneous FDI strategies, alternating rescuer, cherry-picker and niche-player approaches depending on market conditions and the firms available for takeover. Furthermore, some niche players become empire-builders over time when faced with increased competition and lower growth rates in their sector. This framework, offering both descriptive and prescriptive components, can help firms take advantage of investment opportunities in Japan while considering its possible applicability to other mature economies.
