Market Overview

Japan is one of the developed countries and has an established healthcare system. Hence, Japan attracts global players due to structured guidelines. 

Japan has one of the highest percentages of the elderly population. According to World Health Organization, Japan was the world’s most aged population in 2017 with 33% of the population aged 60 or over and it is projected to remain so through 2050 where 42% of the population will be aged 60 or over. Aging takes its toll on the skin as it starts to wrinkle with age. This is the major factor for the growth of the aesthetic devices market in Japan. Other factors like increasing awareness regarding aesthetic procedures, rising adoption of minimally invasive devices and technological advancements in this field such as more accurate and safer devices have also helped propel the growth of this market.

However, reimbursement issues and stringent safety regulations for aesthetic devices and procedures have dissuaded some companies from entering this market. This has, hence, acted as a restraining factor for the growth of this market.

Key Market Trends

Energy-based Aesthetic Device in type of devices is expected to dominate the market

Energy-based aesthetic devices include laser-based devices, radiofrequency based devices, light-based devices, and ultrasound-based devices.

The ability to produce highly precise and controllable effects on tissues, easy adaptability to fiberoptics, microscopes and minimally invasive delivery systems, and the potential to literally treat some conditions by shining a highly controllable beam of light (laser-based and light-based) or sound waves (ultrasound) on a specific target without touching the tissue with a solid instrument, make these devices unique. These versatile devices have been used to provide solutions for diagnostic and therapeutic problems and offer the scientist and clinician the opportunity to tailor strategies to fit specific and unique scenarios. 

Due to these advantages, the Energy-based Aesthetic Device segment has dominated this market and is expected to further grow in the forecast period.
