Some API enterprises have gradually shifted their R&D and production focuses to the high value-added characteristic APIs, and customized APIs and intermediates in recent years under the influence of the increasingly tightened environmental protection policy and decline of export prices due to excess capacity.
And driven by policies such as generic drug quality and efficacy consistency evaluation of oral preparations and pharmaceutical product procurement with target quantity, high-quality low-priced APIs become a key link for preparation enterprises to have the initiative in hands in future market. And the competition of API enterprises has been extending to the downstream industrial chain.
With the penetration of such competitiveness, CPhI China, a globally well-known pharmaceutical trade platform, has already been exploiting and extending the upstream and downstream industrial chains over the years, and has now included 8 blocks covering APIs, fine chemical and intermediates, pharmaceutical excipients, preparations, contract research, biopharmaceuticals, natural extracts, and animal health and feed, and become a professional platform that provides integration for API enterprises to optimize industrial chain layout.
CPhI & P-MEC China 2019 will be grandly held at Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) on June 18-20, 2019. This session will have an exhibition area exceeding 200,000m2 for the first time and cover all the 17 exhibition halls of the SNIEC. High level conferences and events themed by international market trend, market access, latest technology discussion, and product display will be held concurrently, to maximize the benefits for visitors and to integrate the visiting with business negotiation and latest information within 3 days. By then, people there can feel the pulse of China’s pharmaceutical innovation, and witness the past, present, and future of China’s pharmaceutical industry.
Following the development trends of the international pharmaceutical industry, attracting more quality overseas and Chinese enterprises
Size of the global API market has so far reached about USD150 billion, and will continue to grow at a rate of 5%. The export volume of China’s APIs hit all-time high continuously in 2015 and 2016, and reached 8.9515 million tons in 2017, which was another history record and grew by 8.33%. The figures show that the rigid demand of the global market is driving China’s API industry to develop continuously. And many Chinese API manufacturers have become stable suppliers of international pharmaceutical enterprises, for example, Shandong Xinhua and Yongtai Technology that have confirmed their participation this year separately supply levodopa to Merck and Roche and key intermediates of sofosbuvir to Gilead.
Famous for its high internationalization degree, CPhI & P-MEC China is unique in terms of in-depth exploitation of overseas market.
