IT & Communications

Japan has one of the most advanced IT and Communications markets in the world. Home to many world-renowned electronics brands, Japan has been at the advent of new technologies for many years as a country of early adopting consumers. Japan was at the forefront of the early take up of mobile communications, personal entertainment systems and computer electronics, although it often developed national rather than global networks. Recent years have seen a reversal of this trend, and a rise in the importance of global standard technologies which offer greater integration with worldwide markets.

This is presenting opportunities for UK companies as Japan's leading large mobile phone, electronics and IT companies look overseas for nimble partners with innovative technologies. UK companies with unique and high-tech products are well placed to take advantage of growing demand in software and computer services, particularly cloud-based services, as well as in cyber security field, where the Japanese government is moving to establish security technologies for control systems through international cooperation and standardization. Technology, IPR and consultancy for this particular area is a big interest.
