Medical & Dental Devices

— Latest update: May 2023 —

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 combined with the increasing number of patients with chronic diseases, as well as the universal health insurance coverage and regulatory measures will continue to drive demand in the medical device market.
