Japan Network Equipment 2015-2019 Forecast Update and 2014 Analysis: Router, Ethernet Switch, and WLAN Market

This IDC study analyzes market trends in 2014, and the future outlook, for the Japan network equipment market, which consists of routers, Ethernet switches, and enterprise WLAN equipment. In 2014, the network equipment market maintained its growth because of continued capital spending on Long Term Evolution (LTE) services and because of the strength of the market for network equipment for companies. However, signs of change also began to appear, and the market is now entering a new phase. IDC believes that the Japan network equipment market, which had continued to have high growth, will soon slow down but will still expand throughout the period from 2015 to 2019, albeit moderately. IDC believes that, as mobile and the cloud become even more closely intertwined with company activities and people's daily lives, spending on network equipment for these areas will contribute to the vitality of the market.

Network equipment vendors will need to be sensitive to changes to customer perceptions as they respond to transformations in the market environment. The desire among telecommunications carriers to reduce capex/opex is stronger than ever. Therefore, "Vendors must pay sufficient attention to the possibility that carriers will aggressively adopt products of specifications and form factors that would never have been chosen before. The competitiveness of carrier network equipment vendors will thus be determined by how well they can deliver the reliability and performance that customers demand with these form factors and architectures that differ from those of the past, or by whether they can provide products optimized by shaving off reliability requirements and performance that are excessive," says Kenichi Kusano, IDC Japan Communications Group manager.
