Product Description

Japan’s trauma device market was previously valued at $625 million. However, this value is expected to increase over the forecast period at a CAGR of 2.1% to reach over $720 million by 2025.

The main driver of the market is the rapid adoption of newer technologies, mixed with the established medical regulation system. Japanese medical device approval, in some rare cases, might be granted even before FDA approval and can be less time-consuming, which makes the market more attractive for foreign investment. Plus, there are benefits, including a faster review process and extra reimbursement, for those who apply earlier or in parallel with the FDA. The Japanese government provides the Unmet Clinical Need Device Program or the Device Lag Program, to accelerate the launch of clinically necessary devices.

The market is limited by aggressive reimbursement cuts, originally initiated in 2008 and that has remained the main regulative force for the medical market in Japan, fueling price-based competition in a highly commoditized market. The reimbursement price is typically around 70% of the U.S. list price. Orthopedic devices can be reimbursed at about half of the U.S. list price, and cardiovascular devices are about 85%.

In 2018, DePuy Synthes remained the leading competitor in the total Japanese orthopedic trauma market. This can be attributed to their strong position in the majority of the market segments. Their most significant market share is in the plate and screw market, where they also continued to lead the segment. This is a result of their pioneering efforts in developing locking plate and screw systems, which the company first introduced in 2002. Additionally, the company promoted a switch to titanium over stainless steel systems, which is fueling its market growth.

In 2018, Stryker held the second-leading position in the Japanese orthopedic trauma market, driven by their leading positions in the intramedullary nail market and intramedullary hip screw market and by holding almost half of the cannulated screw market share. The company’s revenue from its Trauma and Extremities business in the Asia-Pacific region generates up to $160 million annually, which is around 10% of global sales from the Trauma and Extremities segment.
