One-to-One Meetings with a Japanese Life Sciences Expert at Medica in Germany

UK healthcare and medical devices companies looking to enter the Japanese market will have an opportunity to meet with Japan based Life Sciences trade adviser, Kaori Arai, at MEDICA between 20-23 November held at Dusseldorf Fairgrounds.  Companies can discuss market potential in Japan and how UKTI Japan will be able to help with the market entry.

Japan has the second largest healthcare market in the world with national medical expenditure of £256 billion in 2012 which showed a record-high in terms of both level and growth rate. Due to the fast ageing population, demand for unique, sophisticated and highly technical assistive and care products have been on the rise.

The Japanese medical devices market is also the world's second largest worth approx. £16 billion in 2011, 44.4% of which is reliant on imported products. The Japanese government place an importance in growing healthcare and medical industries under the government’s growth strategy.  A review of the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law (PAL) is in process, which is expected to ease some of the complicated regulatory procedures and this will also work favourably to British medical devices suppliers.  Opportunities exist with advanced and innovative products in areas such as R&D and technology out-licensing: diagnostics systems and equipment, novel medical treatments, preventive healthcare and infection control related products.
