JAPANESE MARKETS FOR WOUND MANAGEMENT PRODUCTS

180 Pages | 54 Exhibits | 2001 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2005

OVERVIEW:
Japan is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. The nation's 125 million inhabitants live within an area the size of Norway or California. For many years, Japan had a booming economy, and the country was considered one of the most productive markets in the world; however, in the early 1990s, Japan's economy slumped, resulting in severely depressed economic conditions throughout the country. Despite action by the Japanese government to improve the situation, the economy has not yet recovered, and there is uncertainty about the nation's future. This uncertainty has greatly affected the delivery of healthcare in Japan.

The Japanese government is attempting to control escalating healthcare costs through legislation that promotes the care of patients in their own homes instead of in expensive hospitals. As a result, existing products that are easily adaptable for use in the home are expected to demonstrate considerable market growth during the next five years. In addition, Japan's population is aging, and an older population will significantly increase demand in Japan for wound management products--particularly for pressure reduction and relief products such as specialty beds, mattress replacements, and overlays. The wound management products market in Japan is expected to reach $251.4 million in the year 2005.

This report from Medtech Insight analyzes the technologies, products, current and forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in wound management in Japan during the next five years. Major topics discussed in this report include: cleansing agents; debridement agents; granulation agents; wound dressings; skin replacements; growth factors; and pressure reduction and relief products.
