Special Focus - Medical Devices

Knowing the specifics of the Japanese market is vital for any project to succeed. This month in "Special Focus", we highlight the Medical Devices market. Information on the related sub-topics, latest reports and webinars on this topic are available on the following links.

Japan is one of the largest producers and import markets of medical devices in the world and the majority of the device manufacturers in Japan are small and medium-sized enterprises.

The rapidly aging Japanese population, increasing number of patients with chronic and life-style diseases, universal health insurance coverage and regulatory measures will continue to drive demand in the medical device market.


Areas of opportunity for EU SMEs in the medical device market in Japan include: Orthopedic devices segment, Software as a Medical Device (SaMD), Cardiology equipment and pacemaker segments, Artificial organs, Advanced diagnostic imaging, Software for diagnostic imaging analysis, R&D collaborations, and Surgical support robots


We recently organised a webinar targeting EU small- and medium-sized companies seeking to find opportunities in the Japanese medical device market. Did you miss it? No problem, you can always access the recording of the session:
