Interventional Cardiology Market Analysis, Size, Trends | Japan | 2017-2023 | MedSuite (Includes 12 Reports)

  • Year: 2017
  • Scope: 2014-2024

The total Japanese interventional cardiology market is growing at a rate of 1.3%, which will take the 2017 market value of ¥151,896 up to ¥166,789 by 2024.

Japanese hospitals tend to gravitate towards the more expensive and technologically advanced devices; however, the high-cost of imaging devices like OCT catheter and FFR guidewires is limiting the market adoption. Although prices for OCT catheters have decreased over the last several years, these devices are still substantially more expensive when compared to standard diagnostic coronary catheters. In addition to this, IVUS catheters are already so widely accepted in Japan; therefore, prices of OCT catheters will have to decline substantially before penetration rates can reach even half of the IVUS catheter market.


While this report suite contains all Japanese interventional cardiology data, each of the markets are also available as stand alone MedCore reports. This allows you to get access to only the interventional cardiology market research that you need. You can view all these included reports and segmentation here:

  • Interventional Cardiology Market Overview – MedView – Gives an easily accessible view of all interventional cardiology markets and trends and aggregates the data together for a picture of the total Japanese market.
  • Procedure Volumes for Interventional Cardiology – MedPro – Using a number of databases, internal and external, we’re able to provide you with the total volume of interventional cardiology procedures being performed for each of the markets mentioned in this suite of reports.
  • Product Portfolio for Interventional Cardiology – MedFolio – Covering all segmentation within this interventional cardiology suite, we include insight on all available products in each market, any recalls and clinical trials.
  • Coronary Stent Market – MedCore – Covers segmentation into the Bare-Mental Stent Market and Drug-Eluting Stent Market.
  • Coronary Balloon Catheter Market – MedCore – Segmented into 2 main markets, PTCA Balloon Catheters and Specialty Balloon Catheters.
  • Balloon Inflation Device Market – MedCore – The primary uses of balloon-inflation devices are to inflate dilation balloons for stent placement as well as to inject contrast agents for use in diagnostic procedures.
  • Interventional Coronary Catheter Market – MedCore – Interventional catheters are used by physicians in procedures for the placement of devices such as stents and balloons.
  • Interventional Coronary Guidewire Market – MedCore – The coronary guidewire market is broken down into two segments: Conventional and Specialized.
  • Introducer Sheath Market – MedCore – Introducer sheaths facilitate the insertion of devices such as guidewires and catheters for use in interventional procedures.
  • Coronary Vascular Closure Device Market – MedCore – Vascular closure devices (VCDs) are used in both the peripheral and coronary markets for minimally invasive cardiovascular therapies.
  • Fractional Flow Reserve Guidewire Market – MedCore – Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is a guidewire-based procedure that can accurately measure blood pressure and flow through a specific part of the coronary artery. FFR guidewires are inserted through a diagnostic catheter during a coronary angiogram.
  • Intravascular Ultrasound Catheter Market – MedCore – Further segmented into Rotational Intravascular Ultrasound Catheters and Phased Array Intravascular Ultrasound Catheters.
  • Optical Coherence Tomography Catheter Market – MedCore – In coronary applications, OCT involves directing an optical beam from a catheter extended into the artery of interest. An OCT system, much like an IVUS system, consists of a catheter connected to a console.
