Japan IT Services Forecast Update by Vertical Segment, 2017−2021
This IDC study presents the Japan IT services market overview and trends. Besides providing IT services spending trends in18 industry segments (subsegments) of end-user companies, this study also represents IT services spending trends across six key industry segments for three service segments. It also provides forecast for the size and growth for each market segment from 2016 to 2021. IDC also adds recommendations for service vendors. In 2016, the Japan IT services market was affected by the dwindling large systems integration (SI) projects, which slowed down growth in this market. Low growth is expected to continue in 2017 and later. However, spending for digital transformation (DX) may increase its presence as a new growth area. "Activities for DX are not necessarily guaranteed to succeed. To increase their presence in the DX age, IT services vendors should overcome industrial and organizational barriers and take a process of trial and error willingly while having a sense of speed," said Akihiro Kimura, research manager, IT Services, IDC Japan.
