Compared to other major orthopedic markets, the Japanese trauma device market will be somewhat less severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic given the urgent nature of many trauma cases. Once the market stabilizes, favorable demographics will support procedure volume expansion, however, overall revenue growth will be hindered by falling ASPs—reflecting biennial MHLW reimbursement cuts—as well as slower entry of premium-priced devices relative to other mature markets globally, and the possible introduction of a cost-effectiveness–based reimbursement pricing system.
