3 The automobile industry Like the electrical and electronics sector, the automobile industry has also undergone global reorganisation as a consequence of a trade conflict between the USA and Japan; in particular, Japanese companies were prompted to build manufacturing plant in the USA. However, it was the acquisition of Chrysler by Daimler-Benz that triggered the most important phase of global reorganisation. The fact that size matters for survival was widely recognised, as might be guessed by the coining of the term ‘Four Million Club’ to refer, somewhat enviously or complacently, to those automobile manufacturers producing over 4 million vehicles per annum.
Since the distribution of company sizes is extremely surprising we will first introduce some appropriate tools for handling these, and make comparisons with other distributions. 1. We denote the height by x and the frequency of people with height between x and x + dx, where dx is a small number, by p(x)dx. 1 is a histogram with an abscissa graphing the height x, and an ordinate graphing the frequency p(x)dx. Adding all the frequencies over the range yields a result of 1, which means that the total area of the histogram adds up to 1.
Indeed, Japanese companies have now caught up with US companies in sales numbers in spite of the fact that these American companies retain a strong influence on the market. This is partly because these US companies must incorporate very large welfare costs, including pension and medical payments for retired employees, into the prices of cars. By comparison, Japanese companies enjoy relatively low costs for welfare, in addition to efficient production technologies, and can therefore increase their market share and maintain a healthy profit margin.
