Japan is the world’s 3rd largest medical market with imported medical devices accounting for 49% of this market. In Japan’s Super Aging Society, the number of people in Japan over 65 is about 25% of the population and will reach nearly 39 % by 2050. To combat the expected rise in healthcare costs, Japan has reduced approval times to get medical products into the Japanese market including a fast-track approval process for innovative medical devices which came into effect on July 31, 2017.
