Internet of Things

 Latest update: May 2022 

The number of lines for IoT is growing rapidly as the use of smartphones, tablets, and other devices continue to increase and Japan's ICT market is the world's third-largest market and holds a 6.4% share of the global market. The Japanese government expects that the automation of IoT could replace some of the traditional tasks in healthcare, maintenance, and asset management and therefore heavily promotes new wireless technologies for IoT, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and 5G. The shortage of workforce and the increasing sophistication of analytics tools and Artificial Intelligence (AI) infrastructure is driving the IoT market in Japan.
