Japan: Fixed Mobile Bundles, M2M/IoT and 5G launch to Support Telecom Growth

Summary

Japan generated telecom service revenue of US$135.7bn (¥14.5trn) (equivalent to 2.9% of nominal GDP) in 2016, an increase of 14.1% since 2015, due to growth in mobile data and fixed broadband segments and a stronger yen. Mobile data continued to be the largest revenue-contributing segment and accounted for 41.0% of total service revenue in 2016, owing to Japan’s high data ARPU, multiservice ownership as well as rising LTE service adoption.

The top two operators, NTT DoCoMo and KDDI, which provide fixed, mobile services and pay-TV, accounted for 72.9% of total service revenue in 2016. NTT DoCoMo will continue to maintain its leadership position in the telecom market through 2021. Operators are focusing on LTE/LTE-A network expansion and upgrades as well as partnering with vendors for the development of 5G technology to be launched by 2020.

4G remains the most adopted technology in Japan and accounted for 59.7% of mobile subscriptions in 2016. However, its share will increase over the forecast period to reach 81.1% by 2021, supported by operator investment in LTE/LTE-A network speed enhancement and expansion. 3G subscriptions will decline at a CAGR of -13.1% during 2016-2021 and will reach 32.7m subscriptions by 2021, mainly due to increasing adoption of 4G and the upcoming launch of 5G.

Broadband lines will grow at a CAGR of 1.7% during 2016-2021, with penetration of population to increase from 30.5% in 2016 to 33.6% by 2021. Growth will be driven by encouraging government policies supporting FTTH adoption and operators’ discount bundled mobile and fixed-line services as well as cross-selling initiatives.

It is expected that overall service revenue to grow at a CAGR of 1.7% during 2016-2021. The growth will be driven by the mobile segment, in particular mobile data revenue, as a result of expansion of 4G networks and the planned rollout of 5G networks by 2020. The fixed/mobile revenue split will be dominated by the mobile segment through 2016-2021; by the end of the period, mobile revenue will account for 62.4% of all service revenue.

Over the next five years, as advanced 5G technology, 8K ultra-HD, IoT/M2M, smartphones and wearable devices take off; operators should seize opportunities in the market via mobile content and applications, OTT services and other value-added services. Vendors should position themselves to support LTE network upgrades, future 5G network deployments, and LTE- and 5G-enabled device demands.
