BMI View: Japan's telecommunications market is saturated, with above 100% mobile penetration and close to 94% of the mobile subscriptions on 3G or 4G services in 2013. The main driver of the saturated market is expected to be in the 4G and big data services, both of which are crucial to operators to help offset the loss of voice and SMS revenues to free messaging service LINE. According to data provided by the regulator the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC), LTE subscriptions grew at 119% in 2013, while 3G subscriptions show modest decline of 2.4% over the same period, showing strong evidence that 4G services are starting to substitute for 3G subscriptions.

Key Data
  • Mobile subscriptions have continued to increase, reaching 146.256mn by end-2013. BMI forecasts the mobile market will have 162,188 subscriptions by 2018.
  • LTE subscription growth has accelerated and is beginning to substitute for 3G services, which are in decline as a result. MIC latest data in 2013 illustrates a 2.4% decline in 3G services, while LTE subscriptions grew 119%.
