The Japan Defense Agency (JDA) is under pressure to reduce its procurement costs. As a result, the Japanese Defense Industry (JDIB) receives fewer orders from the JDA. The customer for the JDIB is, in essence, limited to the JDA due to the country's unique circumstances. The Japanese government has tried to help the JDIB in various ways. The Japanese government has created demand for the JDIB through high procurement costs, and the JDIB has maintained defense divisions and improved its technological expertise. The research goal is to identify some key political and economic factors to allow the JDIB to continue. This thesis describes the characteristics of the JDIB and the current circumstances surrounding the JDIB, and evaluates factors that influence continued development and sustainment of the JDIB. Subsequently, this thesis concludes with recommendations that would enable the JDIB to continue in a new environment.
