Japan 5G-Ready Mobile Phone Forecast, 2020-2024
Published: September 10, 2020 Content info: 12 Pages

This IDC study provides an outlook of the Japan shipment for 5G smartphones, especially for the Japan mobile phone market. "Because of the peculiarities of the Japan market, the growth rate of the 5G smartphone market is slightly slower than other regions in the developed countries. The second quarter of 2020, which was the market start-up period, also overlapped with the global outbreak of the new coronavirus infection disease (COVID-19), and there are many obstacles to a smooth start-up and growth. In order to break through these obstacles, various measures are required to develop and enlighten new use cases in collaboration with other devices and solutions, as well as to dispel many users' concerns about smartphone prices and monthly usage charges," says Akira Sugawara, senior PC market analyst, mobile device and client solutions for IDC Japan.
