Market Entry in Public Procurement

Koki Arai

Abstract—This study analyzed market entry timing based on the procurement data of construction works of the eight Regional Development Bureaus of Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. After reviewing key aspects, a regression analysis was performed on the possible factors leading to entry. We found that when an efficient company enters the market, the number of bids is large and there are many tender participants, regardless of the previous bid rate and predetermined planned price trend.

Index Terms—Bidding price, Japan, market entry, public procurement.
