Japan Small and Medium-Sized Business Markets Forecast by Vertical, 2016-2020

This IDC study, presents the performance of the Japan SMB IT market in 2015 and the market forecasts for 2016–2020 by company size, product, and industry based on the latest economic situation and product information gathered from vendor surveys up to March 2016. Because of the impact of the Japan economy, IDC expects growth in the Japan SMB IT market to be essentially flat. IDC also expects positive growth to be recovered from 2017 onward with the renovation of existing systems and PC replacement demand playing a central role but anticipates that the portion of businesses that expand their IT spending with strategic goals to remain very small. "If IT suppliers are to support the expansion of strategic IT spending toward growth in the business results of SMBs, they will need to make proposals that are highly flexible and that consider the management concerns of user companies using the 3rd Platform (mobility, the cloud, Big Data and analytics, and social technology)," argues IDC Japan's IT Spending Research Manager Hitoshi Ichimura.
