Japan WAN Services Market Shares, 2023: Network Services Moving Forward to Provide New Value

This IDC research report analyzes vendor shares in the domestic WAN services market in 2023. Looking at the overall market for WAN services, excluding legacy leased lines, sales in 2023 were projected to be positive compared with the previous year. Looking at the sales figures by operator, the top 3 were NTT Communications, KDDI, and SoftBank, with each company maintaining the same market share as the previous year. Looking at WAN service type, L2 bandwidth guaranteed and L3 bandwidth guaranteed still account for the majority of the total sales, but the number of lines and sales in both segments remained flat from the previous year, indicating market maturity. Meanwhile, managed internet VPNs and Ethernet leased lines outperformed other segments in terms of YoY revenue growth, just as they did in 2022."Demand for closed network services remains strong, but the environment surrounding WAN services is changing rapidly, with companies showing increasing interest in the secure access service edge (SASE) architecture and the expansion of areas where 10Gbps lines are provided for corporate internet connection services. Telecommunications carriers and systems integrators (SIs) should not only "combine" networks and security based on SI, but also seek to "integrate" networks and security using their own assets, thereby helping customers make smoother decision making and exploring opportunities to gain further revenue," says Mizukami Takahiro, senior market analyst, Infrastructure and Devices, IDC Japan.This is the English translation of the Japanese document IDC #JP50702524.
