This IDC study provides market forecasts and outlook for the Japan telecommunications services market from 2022 to 2026. In 2021, the Japan telecommunications services market saw L3 best-effort WANs and Ethernet leased lines continue to grow at a higher rate than other service types since last year. Growth is also strong in the number of 5G lines, the WAN services for public cloud connection applications, and IoT communication services. IDC expects growth will continue, particularly in the segments listed earlier, on the back of increased traffic because of cloud migration and the expansion of telecommuting, triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic."In the corporate WAN services market, growth rates are widely different from one segment to another, thus companies should focus on segments with growth potential, such as best-effort and datacenter-to-datacenter connections. The 5G device penetration and the expansion of accelerated communications area will increase the potential for mobile telecommunications services in telecommuting, which will increase the needs for integrated offerings with WAN services. In the high-growth IoT communication services segment, operators should have the ability to offer management improvement proposals, which is a more upstream process in digital transformation (DX) projects," says Yoriyuki Yamashita, Communications research manager, IDC Japan.
