The mature diagnostic imaging system market in Japan will see slow growth through 2027. Although a growing aging population and adoption of new technology will support revenues, overall market expansion will be hindered by a saturated installed base of large imaging systems as well as pricing pressures, due in part to the strong presence of domestic manufacturers.

This Medtech 360 Report provides comprehensive data and analysis on the current state of the market for diagnostic imaging systems in Japan across a 10-year period.


The diagnostic imaging system market in Japan is mature and, therefore, relatively saturated.

Which particular segments of the market will still undergo expansion through 2027?

What shifts in technology are occurring in the country and how fast are these technologies being adopted?

How will preferences of Japanese physicians impact the ways in which companies choose to add value to the sale of their equipment?

There is an overall preference for domestic brands in Japan.

How is the market divided between local and foreign vendors?

To what extent does this divide vary within each market segment and what are the reasons behind the differences?

What strategies can new companies—local or foreign—looking to enter the substantial Japanese diagnostic imaging system market adopt to most effectively compete going forward? 

Which market segments have the lowest barriers to entry for new competitors looking to enter the market?
