The most specialized products according to the RCA index are led by Book-binding Machines (400), Silk Fabrics (121), Prepared Cereals (92.7), Tensile Testing Machines (78), and Chemical Analysis Instruments (77.9).

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
