Most Specialized Products by RCA Index

#permalink to section

The most specialized products according to the RCA index are led by Book-binding Machines (434), Silk Fabrics (123), Prepared Cereals (94.7), Chemical Analysis Instruments (78.9), and Tensile Testing Machines (77.6).

The product space is a network connecting products that are likely to be co-exported. The product space can be used to predict future exports, since Kyoto is more likely to start exporting products that are related to current exports. Relatedness measures the distance between a product, and all of the products it is currently specialized in.

Relatedness Space

#permalink to section

This network shows the products most related to the production structure of  Kyoto. These are products that tend to be co-exported with the products that Kyoto exports. Higher relatedness values ​​indicate greater knowledge, which predicts a greater probability of exporting that product in the future.

The Complexity-Relatedness diagram compares the risk and the strategic value of a territory's potential export oppotunities. Relatedness is a predictive of the probability that a country increases its exports in a product. Complexity, is associated with higher levels of income, economic growth, less income inequality, and lower emissions.
