Abstract: A strong demand, together with high local production costs, made Japan become the world’s biggest importer of swine meat. For Denmark, Canada and the USA, three important exporters, the state of the competition on this attractive but strongly competitive market of export is of the highest importance. Thus, it turns out essential for them to be able to estimate their competitiveness. In this paper, the method proposed by Goldberg and Knetter (1999), based on the measure of the residual demand elasticity, is implemented. The time series analysis is emphasized, with the development and use of a bootstrap unit root test. Estimation results bring finally to light the imperfect competition characterizing the Japanese market of swine meat.
