Business opportunities for Japan & Indonesian dental market are highly lucrative, but it also comes with their own share of risks that can be properly managed with the help of a dental market entry services provider.
Both countries are prosperous nations with distinct cultural richness and unique geographical landscapes that require vital local knowledge to uncover the strategic priorities of any business seeking to enter the booming markets of Japan and Indonesia.
Japan’s Aging Population
Japan’s dentistry tech is known as one of the most advanced and sought-after in the dental equipment industry, however, the nation faces a darker stark reality of not having enough young people in the country.
As the world’s leading country with the highest number of elderly people (according to Nippon.com, by September 2022 almost 30% of the country’s population is aged 65 or more), the Japanese government is in a concerted effort to transform public places & adapt new policies to accommodate their aging citizens.
The growing elderly population creates a huge demand for a fresh supply of young workforce and requires the Japanese government & society to reform themselves to become more proactive in general oral hygiene care as early as possible.
Different Markets, Different Needs & Challenges
Different than Japan, Indonesia also has a similar dental professionals shortage but from a different angle. According to an official decree released by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia in 2020, the ratio of oral hygiene care-taker available is only one for every 11,916 people, meaning that the number of dental healthcare professionals ready for service is massively under capacity.
This fact combined with a survey that postulates nearly 95% of Indonesian citizens have never once set foot inside a dentist’s clinic provides the notion that general oral healthcare is not regarded as important in the average Indonesian life.
Such an issue is a ticking time bomb that will eventually take a toll on the nation’s healthcare costs if no precedents are set right now.
Although Indonesia has healthy population growth by age and is in fact a nation driven by the curiosity and energy of its young people as they enter the most productive phase in their life, many however lack the direction, vision, and confidence to take on a new challenging career pathway that may transform their lives for the better.
