Japan's pharmaceutical market value is set to grow at a tepid Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 1.3% from $72.8 billion in 2013 to reach $79.8 billion by 2020, driven by new product launches and the healthcare burden of the country's aging population, according to research and consulting firm GlobalData. However, the company's latest report states that the Japanese government's promotion of generic drugs, its biennial pricing review system and the depreciation of the yen against the dollar will be limiting factors in what is the second largest mature pharmaceutical market in the world by value.

The market was valued at $64.2 billion in 2008 and peaked at $88 billion in 2011, before a slight dip to $87.2 billion in 2012. A substantial drop in 2013 saw its value decrease by over $14 billion. In 2013, Japan's population was approximately 127.2 million, having declined at a negative CAGR of 0.02% from 2008. Its public healthcare expenditure accounted for 82.8% of total healthcare expenditure, and the government spent approximately $14 billion on pharmaceutical R&D.

Deregulation measures introduced in April 2005 have had an impact on overall market performance and more efficient drug reviews have facilitated the entry of new products. The approval process has now caught up with that outside of Japan, as highlighted by two approvals for Bristol-Myers Squibb, the Daklinza (daclatasvir) and Sunvepra (asunaprevir) dual regimen for hepatitis C, and Opdivo (nivolumab) for melanoma, prior to their approval by the US Food and Drug Administration. Aside from wider economic factors, such as currency exchange rates, GlobalData states that increased use of generic drugs will be a key contributor to the forthcoming period of slow growth to 2020.
