In China, the PH morbidity of men in urban regions is far higher than that in rural regions. The PH morbidity is influenced by several factors: the morbidity of married people higher than that of unmarried ones and the relatively high morbidity among patients suffering from diseases in the nervous system, respiratory system and reproductive system. The morbidity of people with a family history of PH is over 50%.
Only under severe symptoms will PH patients need the surgical treatment. In most cases, the long-term drug treatment is adopted. Currently, the common clinical drugs include receptor blocking agents, antiandrogen drugs, traditional Chinese medicine preparations, plant preparations, etc.
In 2012, the market size of China’s hospital-use anti-PH drugs reached CNY 3.67 billion, increasing by 12.6% YOY.
Four drug varieties, namely, Finasteride, Tamsulosin, Doxazosin and Cernilton dominate China’s hospital-use anti-PH drug market. In 2011, it controlled nearly 80% of hospital-use anti-PH drug market nationwide.
There are numerous anti-PH drug manufacturers in China. In 2011, the total market share of top 4 manufacturers of China’s hospital-use anti-PH drugs by market share was 71.22%, which was slightly lower than that in 2010; the total market share of top 8 manufacturers was over 83%, with the highly-concentrated market. Among it, Sino-US Hangzhou MSD Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. ranked the top, accounting for over 30% of the market share in 2011. Its primary variety is Finasteride (Proscar), accounting for over 90% of the market share in the drug variety. Developed by MSD Co., Ltd, Finasteride (Proscar) appeared in domestic market in 1993 and always tops the BPH drug market.
All in all, the competition pattern of China’s anti-PH drug market will not largely change on the whole in recent years. The overall hospital-use market is continuously leaded by Finasteride, Tamsulosin, Doxazosin and Cernilton. Meanwhile, drugs at low to medium prices are hard to contend against giants. Even though varieties are characterized by excellent qualities and cheap prices, they can only become local brands.
In the coming years, a large group of branded drugs will successively lose patent protection, which is a great opportunity for non-patent drug manufacturers. Meanwhile, it is also a huge market. Therefore, the prospect of China’s anti-PH drug market is very bright. The annual growth rate of China’s anti-PH drug market size is predicted to be over 10% in years to come.
