Market Overview

The major factors augmenting the growth of the diagnostic imaging equipment market includes the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, increased adoption of advanced technologies in medical imaging, and rise in the geriatric population.

The Japan Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Market has been growing in the recent decades. As per a 2017 United Nations report on “World Aging Population”, Japan has one of the highest percentage of geriatric population in the world. Therefore the older population is more prone towards diseases and disorders. As a result the prevalence of chronic illnesses is expected to increase in Japan in the future. These are the major factors that have been driving the growth of the diagnostic imaging market in Japan. 

Moreover, the technological advancements and high adoption rate of the country towards newer technologies have also helped the market to grow in Japan. However, the high cost of equipment and procedures and concerns among the population regarding side-effects of radiations have been restraining the market growth.

Key Market Trends

Application in Oncology is expected to Dominate the Market

Oncology deals with diagnosis and treatment of tumors and cancers, which is one the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. In Japan, there are increasing incidence of cancer that has increased over the span of years. Therefore there is increasing use of imaging in the diagnosis of cancer. It is used to find or detect tumors and other abnormalities, determine the extent of disease, and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment. 

Thus imaging may also be used when doing biopsies and other surgical procedures are performed. Hence as the incidence of cancer is increasing in Japan, the demand for diagnostic imaging equipment is expected to rise as well. This will positively impact the market growth


Competitive Landscape

Japan is a developed country and has trade relations other developed nations. As a result, it enjoys the presence of most of the global players in the diagnostic imaging equipment market. Moreover, many international players like Canon and Fujifilm are Japanese multinationals. This, along with the presence of other global players, has made the Japanese market very competitive for diagnostic imaging equipment market
