Why is the English teaching sector in Japan becoming more competitive?

I've thought of 3 possible reasons: 1. More people want to move to Japan = more people wanting the jobs. 2. The economy is making schools take on less teachers and firing teachers they already have, making the new jobless all competing to get the already limited new English teaching jobs. 3. Large private English schools (Eikaiwa) are shutting down, leaving all their English teaching staff jobless and competing for the limited new jobs available. If anyone here knows if it's one of these, some of these, or none of these reasons then I'd appreciate your input. :D
