China Pharmaceutical Industry: Analysis and Market Trends

Description:    The domestic pharmaceutical market is highly fragmented and inefficient. China, as of 2007, has
                around 3,000 to 6,000 domestic pharmaceutical manufacturers and around 14,000 domestic
                pharmaceutical distributors. Most often cited adverse factors include a lack of protection of
                intellectual property rights, a lack of visibility for drug approval procedures, a lack of effective
                governmental incentives, poor corporate support for drug research and differences in the treatment
                in China accorded to local and foreign firms.

                Even so, the industry environment has been transformed for the better over the last 10 years.
                Entry to the WTO has brought a stronger patent system, medical insurance is now more
                widespread, and pharmaceutical-related regulations have been stiffened. China is reportedly
                expected to become the fifth largest pharmaceuticals market in the world by 2010.

                Currently China has about 3,500 drug companies, falling from more than 5,000 in 2004, according
                to government figures. The number is expected to drop further. The domestic companies compete
                in the $10 billion market without a dominant leader. As of 2007, China is the world's ninth drug
                market, and in 2008 it will become the eighth largest market.

                China's thousands of domestic companies account for 70% of the market, and the top 10
                companies about 20%, according to Business China. In contrast, the top 10 companies in most
                developed countries control about half the market. Since June 30, 2004, the State Food and Drug
                Administration (SFDA) has been closing down manufacturers that do not meet the new GMP
                standards. Foreign players account for 10% to 20% of overall sales, depending on the types of
                medicines and ventures included in the count. But sales at the top-tier Chinese companies are
                growing faster than at Western ones.

                This report examines the Chinese Pharmaceutical Industry from the basics onwards. The report
                focuses on the WTO accession of China and the impact it has had on the Chinese pharmaceutical
                industry, trends in the industry, competition in the industry, etc.

                The report also analyzes the Chinese pharmaceutical industry through a SWOT analysis and a PEST
                analysis. The report looks at the investment scenario in the Chinese pharmaceutical industry and
                the role of the government in the industry and other factors.

                A look at the top market players in the Chinese pharmaceutical industry completes this research
