The 2007-2012 Outlook for B-Vent, Direct Vent, and Free-Standing and Fireplace-Insert Vent-Free Gas-Fueled Domestic Hearth Appliances Excluding Electric and Parts in Japan
This study covers the latent demand outlook for b-vent, direct vent, and free-standing and fireplace-insert vent-free gas-fueled domestic hearth appliances excluding electric and parts across the prefectures and cities of Japan. Latent demand (in millions of U.S. dollars), or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.) estimates are given across some 1,000 cities in Japan. For each city in question, the percent share the city is of it’s prefecture and of Japan is reported. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a city vis-à-vis others. This statistical approach can prove very useful to distribution and/or sales force strategies. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each prefecture and city, latent demand estimates are created for b-vent, direct vent, and free-standing and fireplace-insert vent-free gas-fueled domestic hearth appliances excluding electric and parts. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.
