Elderly people - those aged 65 years or older - now account for 26% of Japan’s total population. This is the highest ratio in the world and for this reason, reducing medical expenses is a pressing issue in Japan.
The Japanese government has prioritized health care as one of the key points in its "New Growth Strategy" and anticipates that the size of the health-related industry could expand to ¥10 trillion by 2020.
As part of this strategy, the government envisages the creation of a "healthy longevity society model" that can contribute to the creation of a sustainable super-aged society in Japan and which could also be ‘exported’ to other countries facing similar demographic trends.
With Japanese consumers becoming ever more health conscious and the boost to the health market provided by the Japanese government’s policies, the health products industry is clearly one of the high growth potential sectors in Japan.
The Tokyo Health Industry Show (THIS) is the biggest exhibition for the health products industry in Japan. Over 550 exhibitors are organized into five show zones: Health Foods and Supplements, Organic and Natural Products, Beauty and Anti-Ageing, Fitness & Sports and Health Equipment & Health care.
Now in its 36th year, THIS plays a leading role in showcasing the trends and developments that are shaping new opportunities in the health products industry, such as food functionality labelling, intestinal flora and hydrogen therapies.
For this reason, THIS is a must attend annual event for buyers and distributors in the health products industry and an unmissable opportunity for suppliers of unique and innovative health products from around the world. If you are looking for new business opportunities you will find them in Japan at Tokyo Health Industry Show.
