This study forecasts user spending in the Japan IoT market by industry segment and by use case. Strong growth in the Japan IoT market is driven by improved business sentiment stemming from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, lower technology and cost barriers to IoT utilization, and changes in laws and support measures involving IoT. Nevertheless, for vendors to sustain their growth in the IoT business well after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, they should address the rising social issues and launch new use cases. To achieve that, they must actively develop new industry segments and ally themselves with new companies.

This study is a translation of the Japanese document, and available upon request when ordering this document. Today, it is possible for companies to transform themselves into IoT-based service providers that operate IT mainly on the 3rd Platform. In other words, 'digital transformation' (DX) is now possible. As companies provide valuable services to end users through DX that is taking place in the IoT segment, IT vendors must not passively meet the requirements set forth by companies, rather they must proactively propose business models.

This study focuses on foreign vendors who provide products and services to enterprise customers in the Japan Internet of Things (IoT) market to analyze their efforts in this market. Further, this study also analyzes the efforts made by foreign vendors in IoT to compare their similarities and differences with Japan-origin vendors in terms of Japan IoT market entry.

As the Japan IoT market grows continuously, foreign and Japan-origin vendors forming this market are heading toward any of these three directions; expanding implementation in industry, increasing implementation objectives and applications, and expanding implementation equipments and areas. IDC expects business relationship between foreign vendors and Japan-origin vendors shows two relationships that are growing more distinct. One is mutually complementary relationship within an ecosystem and another is indirect competitive relationship between ecosystems.

In order for foreign vendors to deploy their business in the Japan IoT market, it is vital for them to develop businesses that take the balance between scale and localization into consideration, promote pre-built IoT oriented security features, and step-up awareness-raising activities related to security. Whereas, for Japan-origin vendors to deploy their business, it is essential for them to form ecosystems that harness their "home-court advantage", and to clearly outline a business model that embodied the spirit of 'fail fast'.
