This IDC study summarizes the performance of the Japan MPS market in 2015, and provides a forecast for the 2016–2020 period. IDC has predicted the size of the market, broke it down into segments based on company size by number of employees, analyzed by industry, explored its degree of market penetration, and provided an overview of the market as a whole. "The Japan MPS market has achieved significant growth. However, only a small number of companies in Japan have been introduced to MPS. As the market changes significantly because of digital transformation (DX), MPS vendors are being called on to provide innovative MPS that is rooted in the widespread occurrence of DX and that is able to provide new value," argues Eiji Ishida, group manager, IDC Japan imaging, printing, and document solutions.
