SoftBank Corp.'s revenue FY 2016-2020

The revenue of SoftBank Corp. amounted to approximately 4.86 trillion Japanese yen in the fiscal year 2020, representing an increase of about 200 billion yen compared to the previous year. SoftBank Corp. is a telecommunication company and one of the main mobile phone operators in Japan. The company is a subsidiary of SoftBank Group Corp.

The current state of the mobile communication market

A breakdown of the company’s revenue by segment shows that the consumer segment for individual customers accounted for more than half of the annual revenue in fiscal year 2020. Telecommunication services make up the lion’s share of the consumer segment. In the mobile communication market, SoftBank Corp.’s main competitors are KDDI Corporation, which operates the mobile carrier brand au, and NTT Docomo, which engages in the mobile communications business as a subsidiary of NTT Corporation. Data on the distribution of mobile phone subscribers show that NTT Docomo held the highest market share in the recent years. The competition further increased when Rakuten Mobile, Inc., which had previously acted as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), became the country’s fourth major mobile carrier in 2020.

Preparing for the future

While SoftBank Group. has mainly operated as a telecommunication company, it is currently expanding into other business areas in order to adapt to the changes in the information and communication technology (ICT) industry brought about by increasing digitalization. As one of these measures, SoftBank Corp. added the internet company Z Holdings to its subsidiaries in June 2019. The acquisition of Z Holdings, which operates the popular platform Yahoo in Japan, expanded the business portfolio with internet-related services, such as e-commerce and online advertising. Further measures include the growth of PayPay, a QR code payment system, and the integration of LINE Corporation, which operates the dominating messenger app LINE.
