Penetrating Japan's Photonics Market Through Optronics Magazine.


OPTRONICS understands the Japanese photonics market better than anyone else! 
As Japan's No.1 photonics journal printed in the Japanese language, OPTRONICS has a circulation of more than 12,000 (plus a significant pass-along audience). Optronics is the best qualified publication to target the Japanese market because it reaches the most influential Japanese buyers, including design engineers, R&D supervisors, purchasing and planning personnel, and operations and management personnel. These important people are continuously seeking information relating to photonics applications and technology and new photonics products from around the world to apply in their businesses. 
To reach these potential customers and to complement your worldwide marketing campaign with Photonics Spectra, advertising in Optronics will reach the most effective targeted photonics buyers in Japan. Since 1990 we have been affiliated with Photonics Spectra, one of the world most influential photonics journals published in U.S.A.
