The Japanese Orthopaedic Market
Published July 2015


In this complimentary 20-page report, ORTHOWORLD leverages its two-decades-long experience producing THE ORTHOPAEDIC INDUSTRY ANNUAL REPORT® to zero in on the Japanese Orthopaedic Market. Large joint reconstruction is the dominant segment, with entities like Aesculap, DePuy Synthes, Medtronic, NuVasive, Smith & Nephew, Stryker, Tornier and Zimmer Biomet all holding a local presence. Domestic companies (a few of which are profiled herein) have benefitted from favorable governmental regulations that offer them a home-court advantage and cause a particular burden for incomers from the U.S. and EU.
