The Japan Electronics & Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) announced the results of its recently compiled global electronics production statistics.

"There is no statistics of this kind. We'll continue compiling the statistics every year and hope that the world electronics industry can make use of them," said Naoyuki Akikusa, chairman of Fujitsu Ltd, acting JEITA chairman.

The statistics reveal that global IT production, including electronic equipment, components and devices and IT totaled $1.67 trillion ($1 : ?110) in 2005. Global electronics equipment production totaled $818 billion, and production of electronic components and devices reached $457 billion. Meanwhile, electronics hardware production totaled $1.27 trillion in 2005 while global IT solution services reached $400 billion.

Japan contributed 24 percent of the world total with $400 billion. In the electronic equipment category, Japan had a high profile in audio/visual equipment production at 48 percent, amounting to $136 billion. Japan, however, had a low profile in PC and related equipment filed, contributing 18 percent of the total $373 billion production.

The committee estimated that total 2006 production will increase by 6.6 percent to $1.78 trillion, with Japan's industry estimated to account for $418 billion.

JEITA's statistics were based on national production statistics and interviews conducted by the association.
