Expansion of the Japanese GI endoscopy device market will be driven by a high incidence of gastric cancer and broad coverage for CRC screening in the country; however, reimbursement cuts and and a slight overall population declines will limit growth opportunities.

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


The overall population in Japan is declining, resulting in a slight contraction of the over-40 population.

How will this trend affect demand for GI endoscopy devices over the forecast period?

Which procedures and product sales will be affected most?

The minimum age for CRC screening has been relaxed in Japan, allowing a wider window for screening.

How has this changed affected GI endoscopy procedure volumes?

Which product types will benefit from this change?

Many large multinational GI device manufacturers, including Olympus, FUJIFILM, and PENTAX Medical, are based in Japan.

What advantages do these companies have over foreign companies?

How will the introduction of novel devices shift the competitive landscape?
