Japan is the world’s 3rd largest medical market! In addition, the high rate of aging population results in expansion and construction of new hospitals and
elderly-care facilities. This trend leads to the expansion of the medical industry.
The Japanese medical device market relies heavily on imported products.
The annual sales amount of medical devices in Japan was JPY 2,748 billion
(USD 25.2 billion) (2015), 52% of which were imported products.
The Japanese Government selects the medical industry as a priority sector and to nurture it, is pushing overall reform. Easing of regulations and launches of new projects are activating the Japanese medical industry.
