Market Overview

This report refers to major hospital facilities and equipment at HIS (Hospital Information Systems), CSSD (central sterile services department), operational rooms, dispensing, hospital wards, and etc.
When looking at the transition of the domestic hospital equipment and devices market, because the additional medical safety measurement was included in FY2008 Revision of the Medical Payment System, more expenses have become newly needed for securer structures in medical institutions as a whole, which could diminish the budget for hospital equipment and devices. To the contrary, however, ever since the fund for revitalizing local medical care has been established in each prefecture in FY2009, the emergency care systems and advanced medical care have become available at key hospitals which expanded the market especially in the category of equipment for operation rooms and central sterile supply department, while local large hospitals have been integrated and restructured. For the future, the market may face predicament, as large hospitals and university hospitals have somewhat finished extending, reconstructing, and newly construct their facilities, though some of mid-size hospitals with 200 to 400 beds are expected to plan their extension and reconstruction.  

The domestic hospital equipment and devices market for FY2017 is likely to attain 171,993 million yen, 100.5% of the size of the previous fiscal year (based on the shipment values at distributors). Out of 27 products, those that exceeded the previous fiscal year were only 11. The market size for FY2018 is estimated to be 175,313 million yen, 101.9% of the previous fiscal year.
