Japan Small and Medium Business 2014-2017 Forecast and 2013 Review

This IDC study, which is a translation of the Japanese document IDC #J14100101, estimates the performance of the Japan SMB IT market in 2013 and presents a forecast for 2014-2017 by company size, product, industry, region, and prefecture, based on the latest economic situation and product information gathered from vendor surveys conducted up to December 2013. Starting from this study, IDC is providing IT spending forecast data under four categories by annual sales. In addition, the IT spending forecast data by region is further categorized by company size.

Japan's economy is on a recovery trend in 2014 due to the "Abenomics" policies but, due to a trough in hardware replacement demand, the overall Japan SMB IT market is forecast to post negative growth in 2014. However, the software and IT services segments are forecast to register positive growth. Instead of demands for upgrading existing systems, SMBs will have an increasing demand for IT systems such as customer management systems and sales support systems. Demand for software and IT service solutions will increase. Therefore, "IT vendors should shift their business focus from hardware to solutions for SMBs. New business opportunities will be expected," says Hitoshi Ichimura, senior market analyst, IT Spending, IDC Japan.
