2. CIAJ Mid-Term Demand Forecast for Telecommunication Equipment (2015-2020)

CIAJ released the “FY2015 – FY2020 Mid-Term Demand Forecast for Telecommunication Equipment” in December, 2015.
Initial round of investment towards LTE-readiness in mobile communication devices, which make up
two-thirds of the total telecom equipment market, and telecom network facilities will have completed in FY2016 and rely mostly on replacement demand, leading to a negative growth forecast through FY2017.
From FY2018 onwards, devices taking advantage of 5G mobile communication technology will become popular, with demand for digital transmission equipment to deal with the surge in data traffic from IoT and big data as well as demand for fixed telecommunication equipment to be put in place as part of satellite launch plans are forecast to nudge demand towards positive growth.
