Driving Factors

The widespread use of social networking sites and the internet is being fueled by the roll-out of 5G services, more effective and faster inland interoperability, the accessibility of clean electricity and cost-effective cooling solutions, and other factors, offering Japan an appealing market for investment. As data traffic grows, Japan will require an increasing number of data centers. Furthermore, the market for data centers in Japan is expanding because of Japan's large concentration of high-tech enterprises that invest much in adopting sophisticated technology.


The Japanese government and commercial parties are investing heavily in the construction of new data centers and the expansion of those currently in operation. Furthermore, firms are opting for more environmentally friendly options, such as solar electricity, for supplying electricity to data centers. Equinix, Colt Data Centre Services, Telehouse, NTT Communications, AT TOKYO, Fujitsu, ARTERIA Networks, and SCSK Corporation (netXDC) are among the domestic and worldwide data center operators present in the country. Furthermore, by purchasing data center operators or investing in the organization, the operators are boosting their market share and visibility across the entirety of the nation. Vantage Data Centers, for example, established its footprint in the Japanese data center industry with its acquisition of Agile Data Centers.
