Market Overview

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

According to the Statistics Bureau of Japan, the country is experiencing a “super-aging” society both in rural and urban areas. As per 2016 estimates, 33.0% of the Japanese population was above the age of 60, 25.9% are aged 65 or above, and 12.5% are aged 75 or above. Moreover, the prevalence of chronic diseases is also increasing among the Japanese population, and more so among the geriatric population as they are more prone to diseases. But Japan is a developed country that has a developed healthcare system as well. The healthcare industry in Japan has well adopted new innovations and advancements for diagnosis. These factors have helped this diagnostic imaging market grow in Japan.

However, the cost of diagnosis due to expensive instruments and side effects that follow the diagnostic imaging have been restraining the growth of this market.

Key Market Trends

Oncology Segment is expected to Account for Largest Market Share during the Forecast Period

According to the Annals of Cancer Epidemiology, cancer as a cause of death has been constantly increasing and is the leading cause of death in Japan.  Age-standardized incidence rates for males and females in Japan were 303.1 and 224.8 per 100,000, respectively as per the same report.

Diagnostic imaging plays a vital role in interventional oncology (with rising opportunities to diagnose and treat in a targeted and minimally or non-invasive manner) as well as in chemo and radiation therapy. Tools, such as CT, are the highly beneficial and preferred method of imaging for many conditions, including trauma patients. Comparatively, PET is mostly preferred as compared to SPECT, and there are hybrid medical devices also available such as PET/CT or PET/MRI.

As Japan has a developed healthcare system, these technologies have been implemented into the routine and have been helping the patients and physicians as well. Hence, an increased prevalence of cancer and the implementation of new technologies are expected to help this segment dominate the market.
