BMI View:

Japan's mature telecommunications industry is characterised by high-speed internetconnections. Operators have enjoyed success in pursuing multi-device strategies due to a high appetite foradvanced technology and digital applications. However, the country's economic slowdown bringsconsiderable downside risks to this strategy; which relies on high levels of disposable income. We believethat the future of the Japanese telecommunications market will be driven by the Internet of Things (IoT).With virtually 100% 3G/4G penetration, recent trends are reflective of operators' rush to use this hightechnological base to push for subscribers to take up higher-value digital services.
