  • 1. RnR Market Research Offers “Japan Pharmaceutical Market Outlook – Deregulation andMore Efficient New Drug Approval Process Attract Foreign Investment and Improve theCompetitiveness of Japanese Players” Report at US$ 3500 Single User License. Thereport got published in Apr 2013 Contain 97 Pages.The Declining and Rapidly Aging Population Presents Significant Challenges to the Healthcare Systemand Economy as a WholeJapan had a population of 127,817,277 in 2011, making it the 10th most populated country in the world(The World Bank, 2012). However, since 2005, as the number of deaths exceeded that of births, thepopulation has declined. Without significant government intervention, the depopulation process isexpected to continue.The proportion of people aged 65 or over is 23.3% and projected to reach 29.1% by 2020 and almost40% by 2050 (Statistical Research and Training Institute, 2012).These demographic changes will present further challenges to a stagnating economy, which, as the datain this report confirms, is already struggling with reduced economic growth. A diminishing workforce andfalling productivity levels will likely add to the economic difficulties Japan is experiencing.The associated increase in disease burden has also had implications for the healthcare system.Healthcare expenditure has risen, and is set to rise further as the population continues to age.Get Report Details @ http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/japan-pharmaceutical-market-outlook-deregulation-and-more-efficient-new-drug-approval-process-attract-foreign-investment-and-improve-the-competitiveness-of-japanese-players-market-report.htmlIn 2010, Japan’s healthcare spending per capita was $4,065.4, a significant increase from 2005.Japan’s universal healthcare system may therefore prove unsustainable as the government looks tocontrol spending. A combination of pro-generic policies, government initiatives to prevent lifestylediseases, and higher copayments should help to keep healthcare expenditure under control.Regulatory Reform will Continue to Attract Foreign Pharmaceutical CompaniesThe ongoing deregulation of the Japanese pharmaceutical industry has made it an attractive market forbig pharma. Improvements to the new drug approval process have significantly shortened the approvaltime. Consultation services provided by approval bodies have been expanded and improved, approvalstandards have been clarified and the number of trained personnel involved in the review process hasincreased.Many of these changes have occurred following the introduction of a number of plans and governmentpolicies. Plans are currently being implemented to shorten the review period and improve cooperationwith other countries, particularly Western and other Asian nations, such as the Second Medium RangePlan (2009–2014), which includes the International Strategic Plan.Request a Sample Copy @ http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/contacts/request-sample?rname=92373
  • 2. In April 2007, the government introduced the 5-Year Strategy for the Creation of InnovativePharmaceuticals and Medical Devices, which contributed towards the reduction in lag time associatedwith new product approvals.In addition to attracting foreign investment, deregulation has also improved the competitiveness ofJapan’s pharmaceutical companies. The market now consists of multinational players such as Takedaand Daiichi Sankyo, who market leading products globally.Takeda Maintains its Position as the Leading Company in the Japanese Pharmaceutical IndustryTakeda maintained its position as the leader in Japan’s pharmaceutical industry in 2012, with revenues of$18.9 billion. This was followed by Otsuka Holdings, Astellas, Daiichi Sankyo and Eisai.M&A activity has become a common theme within the global pharmaceutical industry. This is often astrategic response to patent expirations, reduced R&D productivity and the need to cut costs.The Japanese pharmaceutical industry has followed this trend. Although historically dependent ondomestic R&D, the recent globalization of Japanese companies has been driven by enhanced M&Aactivity. Significant deals have been completed in the US, Europe and developing nations, such as China,India and Brazil.With a total of 20 M&A, including two recently announced, Takeda has been the most active Japanesecompany.The M&A strategy is seen as necessary for pharmaceutical companies keen to expand product pipelinesfollowing patent expirations and gain access to untapped markets. It is hoped that such strategicmeasures will help develop or maintain growth and revenue.Reasons to buy- Primarily, the report will allow clients to gain a strong understanding of the economic and healthcarechallenges facing Japan.- In addition, the report will assist in identifying opportunities within Japan’s pharmaceutical market,including:- Potential for market growth – A number of factors could provide strong potential for sales growth in theJapanese pharmaceutical market.
