Countries is directed toward development rather than research. The OECD Science, Technology, and Industry Scoreboard reports that in developed countries with high R&D intensities, basic research is less than one fifth of total R&D spending. Economic analysis of R&D In the theoretical economics literature, the term “R&D” is commonly File Size: 37KB.

Japan is well known for its electronics industry throughout the world, and Japanese electronic products account for a large share in the world market, compared to a majority of other countries. Japan is one of the leading nations in the fields of scientific research, technology, machinery, and medical research with the world's third largest budget for research and development at $ billion.

Strong organizational links between market needs and the technology development function in Japanese firms not only speed technology utilization, but also have a deeper impact on the types of tasks emphasized in R&D. Miller argues that the "trial-and-error," market-driven approach to technology development taken by successful Japanese companies.
