BMI View: Japan's telecommunications industry is one of the most developed globally, as characterised by high speed internet connections. We expect telecommunications operators in the country to continue investing heavily in their 4G networks, as they seek to leverage on growing data demand.

Key Data:
  • Mobile subscriptions have continued to increase, reaching 155.1mn by end-2014. BMI forecasts the mobile market will have 166.2mn subscriptions by 2019.
  • LTE subscription growth has accelerated and is beginning to substitute for 3G services, which are in decline as a result. Latest Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) data in Q314 illustrates a 10.4% increase in the number of LTE subscriptions over the course of the year.
  • Average revenue per user (ARPU) levels will likely continue trending down due to an increase in smartphone ownership, which poses a threat to traditional service revenues through IP substitution for voice and SMS. While data ARPU is increasing, it is not enough to stop the overall decline, with market average blended ARPU down 2.0% in 2014.
