According to a study from MM Research Institute, a Japanese market trend and research firm, the total number of smartphone video viewers in Japan is expected to more than triple from 12.3 million to 38.4 million between 2011 and 2016. This increase is attributed to rising smartphone use and LTE (Long Term Evolution) subscriptions in the heavily-wired country.
