INDUSTRY INSIGHTS

The Japan data center market size will witness investments of USD 11.44 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5.93% during the forecast period. Japan is among the top and established data center markets in the APAC region which comes in the fifth position after China, Australia, India and Singapore in terms of data center investment in the APAC region in 2022. The Japan data center market has the presence of local and global operators such as Equinix, MC Digital Realty, AirTrunk, Colt Data Centre Services (Colt DCS), Telehouse, NTT Communications, Digital Edge, AT TOKYO, Fujitsu, ARTERIA Networks, SCSK Corporation (netXDC) and among others. 

Japan is the most expensive country to build a data center facility in the APAC region. As per Turner & Townsend, the construction costs in Tokyo in 2022 were around USD 11.40 per watt. Also, Japan's land price and power cost are higher than other APAC countries such as India, China, and South Korea. Despite being the most expensive country to build a facility with high land and electricity prices, the market is witnessing a boom and growth in investment through several new entrants and existing operators. 

The high internet and social media penetration across the country, driven by the deployment of 5G services, better and improved inland connectivity, availability of renewable energy, and free cooling solutions, makes Japan an attractive market for investors. Further, the Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI) is the personal data protection law that protects the privacy of the country's citizens, enacted in 2003. In 2020, the Act was amended and enacted in April 2022. The Japan data center market is mostly concentrated in the Tokyo and Osaka region, which houses around 80% of the existing capacity in the region.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Japan data center market is one of the APAC region's most developed and technologically advanced data center markets. It is in the top hot form witnessing several new investments from local and global operators.
  • Besides the colocation operators, the country witnessed new investments from hyper-scaler Google. The company is developing its self-built facility in Inzai City, which is expected to be online by 2023.
  • Japan has over 100 operational colocation data centers. Most colocation facilities are being developed according to Tier III standards. For instance, Digital Edge opened its n facility OSA1 in Osaka, certified as Tier III.
  • The government is more focused on promoting local enterprises; hence, foreign companies could face several challenges while setting up a business.
  • The country is also witnessing improvement in submarine and inland connectivity. For instance, Topaz, Apricot, and Southeast Asia-Japan Cable 2 (SJC2) are some submarine cables under development that will connect Japan with the U.S., Canada, and other APAC countries.
  • Significant deployment and adoption of 5G services in Japan will fuel data traffic and further grow the demand for more data centers. For instance, Edge Centres has planned to develop a new edge facility in Okinawa.
  • The increasing trend of procuring renewable energy to power the facilities in the country is likely to continue during the forecast, which will contribute to the country’s goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
