Driving Factors

Japan has historically been on the leading-edge of technological advances and innovations. As a result, businesses are rapidly introducing advanced Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and building infrastructure to support them. The Japanese government anticipates that IoT automation will replace some traditional duties in healthcare, administration, and managing assets, and as a result, strongly pushes new wireless IoT, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), and 5G technology. The IoT market in Japan is being driven by a labor shortage as well as the growing complexity of analytics applications and artificial intelligence (AI) technology.


Furthermore, the market is expanding rapidly as a result of rising government investment in smart public facilities such as smart parks and the introduction of a diverse range of IoT sensors and solutions. In addition, the increased acceptance of IoT in many industries including agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, and so on has driven the Japan IoT market forward. Furthermore, Japan is a world leader in consumer products and vehicle manufacturing. Japan is also heavily investing in developing its manufacturing capabilities with introductions such as smart factory automation. IoT is widely utilized in industrial plants to optimize equipment and operations, as well as to track casualties through statistical modeling, which further improves the security of workers. As a result, IoT use in the manufacturing industry has recently emerged as the primary driving driver for the Japan IoT market.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the software segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 32.14% over the forecast period.

On the basis of offering, the Japan Internet of Things Market (IoT) Market is segmented into hardware, software, service, and platform. Among these, the software segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 32.14% over the forecast period. The software is sub-segmented into real-time streaming analytics, application and network security, data management, remote monitoring system, and network bandwidth management. A number of industries have implemented intelligent solutions into operation to improve their current systems. Healthcare facilities, for example, use connected gadgets to optimize the results of medical treatments. The real-time streaming analytics sub-segment has the biggest market share of these. The real-time streaming analytics software processes and evaluates real-time 'in-motion' data and distinguishes it from the previously collected information to identify and track any flaws in the process or hardware and take corrective action as soon as possible. As a result, Japanese businesses are growing more dependent on real-time streaming analytics for identifying security threat trends and their associated risks.


  • In 2022, the agriculture segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 34.2% over the forecast period.

On the basis of industry verticals, the Japan Internet of Things (IoT) Market is segmented into BFSI, consumer electronics, building automation, IT & telecom, industrial, automotive & transportation, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, oil & gas, agriculture, and others. Among these, the agriculture segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 34.2% over the forecast period. There are various emerging problems about agricultural sustainability, including a projected water scarcity by 2030. Japan has developed a digital cultivation method to overcome this issue. With their extensive knowledge, information, and expertise, experienced farmers can make better use of water and compost. This invention could enable even the most unskilled cultivators to implement beneficial methods by combining IoT and AI to gather and analyze information from their cultivating experience and the overall state of the soil. It has the potential to boost agricultural efficiency even in areas with limited access to water. Smart farming, smart greenhouses, automated agriculture, precision farming, and smart drones are some of the key services of technology in the agricultural sector.
