On December 20th 2018, DOC Corporation, which provides career support services for global human resource, released a chaotic map of the foreign human resource related market for 2018. All related industry for the foreign human resource capital market was analyzed, and the results were then plotted on the map. Looking at the map, it becomes easier to grasp the whole of the foreign human resource related market and where attention is gathered.


The map was released after the revised Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act was established by the Japanese government on December 8th 2018. It was created to make it easier for as many people as possible to understand the entire market of the industry as a whole, and companies and services related to foreign human resource. According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the number of foreign workers has exceeded 1.28 million since 2017, beating its previous record high since being officially recorded from 2007, and many foreigners continue to come to Japan to work.
