Key Highlights

The mobile applications market is valued using a bottom-up approach that takes into consideration the average number of user and/or accounts of a particular technology in a given year and the average monthly revenue per subscription (ARPS) during that same year. Non-recurring fees such as activation fees are not accounted for. Revenues are exclusive of VAT.

The Japanese mobile apps market generated total revenues of $49.7bn in 2017, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% between 2013 and 2017.

Market consumption volume increased with a CAGR of 6% between 2013 and 2017, to reach a total of 258.2 million applications in 2017.

The rapid adoption of smartphones in Japan in recent years - although limited somewhat compared to other developed markets - has been one of the drivers of demand for mobile apps. Furthermore, an extremely high 4G penetration - one of the highest worldwide - has also facilitated the expansion of online-based apps. However, the Japanese market has been affected by fluctuating monetization rates amid subdued consumption in a stagnated economy that increases the dispensability of these products.
