Research shows that there are substantial differences in how new products and techniques gain access to different markets, such as those in the US, Germany and Japan.
Comparing Purchasing Processes for Surgical Devices and Medical Equipment in the US, Japan and Germany
The US, Japan and Germany are the world’s largest medtech markets. Together they account for around €210 bn, or almost half of the global market. Each nation has a slightly (or vastly) individualized approach to procuring the medtech used in their healthcare system; i.e. there are varying weights granted to the participating stakeholders and decision […]
In this article, we will compare the US (with around 325 m inhabitants), Japan (130 m) and the largest European market, Germany (85 m), in terms of surgical practices, and assess the effects of the differences between these countries on the respective medtech markets.
