Japan Neurology Clinical Trials Market Executive Summary

The Japan Neurology Clinical Trials market is projected to grow from $325.1 Mn in 2022 to $518.1 Mn by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period of 2022 - 2030. According to research published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Diseases in March 2021 in Japan, there would be between 6.5 million and 7 million individuals with dementia in 2025 and 8.5 million to 11.5 million people with dementia in 2060. Similarly, Alzheimer's disease is responsible for 50-75% of dementia cases in Japan. In Japan, the yearly prevalence of Parkinson's disease (PD) is stated to be 50-80 per 100,000, and it is fast growing since ageing is a key risk factor for PD. As a result, the high prevalence of the neurological disease is likely to raise demand for clinical trials to come up with more drugs targeted to the therapy for those conditions.

Clinical trials in neurology are varied and address a wide range of neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and stroke. These studies are being done to improve patient treatment choices, create novel medicines, and advance our knowledge of the underlying processes of neurological illnesses. Japan has a well-established clinical trial sector and was regarded as a leader in neurology research. A high frequency of neurological illnesses, a competent healthcare system, and a supportive regulatory environment all contribute to Japan's success in this domain. The Japanese government created the Clinical Research Network Japan (CRN), a nationwide network of hospitals and medical institutes that cooperate together on clinical research. The CRN offers clinical trial assistance and resources, such as centralised ethical review and data management services.

Novartis, Pfizer, Biogen, Sanofi, and Eisai were among the worldwide pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporations undertaking neurology clinical studies in Japan. In addition, numerous Japanese pharmaceutical firms, including Takeda, Otsuka, and Astellas, were undertaking neurology clinical studies. In September 2022, Eisai, a Japanese pharmaceutical company, said that its experimental medicine lecanemab had helped halt cognitive deterioration in adults in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

One significant reason is the country's unusually high frequency of neurological illnesses in comparison to other advanced economies. As a result, there is an increasing desire for innovative treatments and therapies, which is driving investment in clinical research in the area of neurology.

Another driver is Japan's superior healthcare infrastructure and a favourable regulatory framework that fosters clinical research investment. Japan has a well-established clinical trial market, and the government has taken a number of initiatives such as the establishment of Clinical Research Network Japan (CRN), a nationwide network of hospitals and medical institutes to make clinical trials more convenient in the nation as well as faster approval procedures for specific kinds of studies.

Market Restraints

One of the most significant restraints is the ageing population, which may make recruiting subjects for clinical studies more challenging. Moreover, there may be cultural and language challenges that hinder participant recruitment and retention, especially for international organisations conducting trials in Japan. Some firms face the high expense of performing clinical trials in Japan. Additionally, there may be legislative and administrative barriers that make conducting clinical trials in the nation more challenging.
