China Pharmaceutical Industry – Overview,trends,analysis,outlook And Swot

Emerging Markets Direct (EMD) announced the release of their latest China Pharmaceutical Industry Report1H11. China Pharmaceutical market has been growing rapidly as the fourth-largest market in the world in terms of size. As one of the pharmerging markets in BRIC, the industry is expected to grow at 12.5% CAGR during 2009 2014. Backed by vast pool of talent, low-cost manufacturing capabilities, and huge market potential, it has attracted several global drug giants to outsource their R&D and invest in China.

While the market size of China Pharmaceuticals in 2009 was USD46.15billion, its overall health expenditure was among the lowest in the world comparable to that of Morocco, India or Saudi Arabia. In 2009, Chinas overall health expenditure was at USD230.7 billion, a 4.7% of total GDP. The industry is well-known for its fragmented nature with 7,664 enterprises in 2009, out of which local domestic enterprises account for 70% of industry sales.

Government policies change the landscape of pharmaceutical industry in China. A three-year health care reform was introduced in 2009 attempting to increase medical insurance coverage, upgrade grassroots medical institution and set up the basic medicine system. These gave a push to the generic pharmaceuticals with measures taken to curb over-prescription of unnecessary drugs. As a matter of fact, high-end drug distributors would be encouraged to consolidate in order to stay competitive.

Over-the-counter pharmaceuticals market is a growing segment in the Chinese pharmaceutical industry and set to double its market share by 2014. Backed by the aging population, increasing disposable income levels, and growth in the awareness of health care. Our analysts expect Over-the-counter purchases to increase along with the growth in the pharmaceutical industry as a whole. Facing the tough competition from hospitals, the market is set to diversify with vitamins, minerals and supplements leading the growth of this segment.
Generic Drugs market will boom for the next 4 years to come as expiring blockbuster drug patents cause a surge in generic drug production. Whats more, Generic segment remains attractive to foreign investments, where multinational companies merge and acquire generic drug companies to compensate for the loss of income from expiring patents. Our analysts think that generic segment will capture a larger consumer base owing to the health-care subsidy put forward by Chinese government.
