Market Overview

The Japanese urological device market, consisting of incontinence, stone management, and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) treatment devices, was valued at over $110 million in 2005. Key factors driving this market include

  • growth of the aging population, and
  • westernized lifestyles, which are leading to rising obesity rates.
