Japan Medical Devices Report

BMI Industry View: The Japanese medical device market remains the second largest in the world, behind only the USA. The market has continued to exhibit a slow but positive growth in local currency terms in recent years, with under half of the market supplied by imports. The market looks set to expand by a CAGR of 2.9% in US dollar terms to 2018. Exports from Japan are likely to continue making positive gains due to the weakening local currency in the short to medium term. Japanese manufacturers are also expected to continue seeking acquisition opportunities abroad to expand their footprint and seek new opportunities for growth.
