Sales by Region

FY ended March 2019

  • Japan: Sales increased 1.6%. In order to respond to market changes such as the government’s healthcare reforms, the Company put more sales resources into the Tokyo metropolitan area in April 2018, following the absorption of 11 domestic sales subsidiaries in April 2017. Sales increased as the Company enhanced sales activities which match each market; the acute care hospital market, the small and mid-sized hospital market, and the clinic market. Consumables and services also contributed to the sales increase. Sales of AEDs in the PAD market increased favorably and sales in the public hospital market also increased as the Company received orders related to replacement of diagnostic information systems and clinical information systems. Sales in the university and private hospital market remained flat, while sales in the clinic market decreased as sales of locally purchased products decreased in accordance with the Company's initiative to expand in-house products sales.
  • International: Sales increased 5.4%. Sales of Physiological Measuring Equipment and Patient Monitors increased favorably. Sales of Treatment Equipment also increased, while sales of Other Medical Equipment decreased.
