Japan Mobile Client Computing Installed Base Forecast by Vertical Market 2014-2018 Forecast and 3Q14 Review

Japan Mobile Client Computing Installed Base Forecast by Vertical Market 2014-2018 Forecast and 3Q14 Review

This IDC study provides an analysis of trends in the Japan mobile and client computing market in 3Q14, explaining the situation in which the market now finds itself and providing forecasts of upcoming developments. The devices covered in the report consist of smartphones, tablets, and client PCs other than x86 servers. The annual data used in this study consist of results up to 2013 and forecast values from 2014 to 2018. The quarterly data used in the study consist of results up 3Q14 (July through September) and forecast values from 4Q14 (October through December) onward. All data are current as of November 2014. The report also provides estimates, by 20 industry categories, of the numbers of smartphones and tablets — devices whose adoption in the commercial market has been slow — in operation.

IDC Japan PC, Mobile, and Client Solution Senior Market Analyst Hirotoshi Asano says, "It can be expected that the number of company-provided tablet units per employee will increase in the near future. However, a crucial milestone that must be reached if companies are to adopt tablets and then go on to increase their investments in the devices is the measurement of the effects of adopting tablets. Vendors will need to propose methods of conducting such measurements at the same time as making other proposals to prospective customers."
