With the development of living standard, obesity has become the problem people have to face. At present the Chinese obesity population is continuously growing larger; the callan obesity problem even stands out. Slimming has become the topic both of the beauty-loving and the fat.
There are two major kinds of slimming drug in the Chinese market, Western medicine and Chinese patent medicine. The western medicines that Chinese pharmacy companies manufacture are mostly imitations of new drugs that foreign pharmacy companies manufacture due to the weakness of innovation. In TCM slimming market, Chinese pharmacy companies fail to become heavyweight companies or produce heavyweight products, even though they produce many kinds of products.
Now there is tens-of-billions of gaps waiting for pharmacy companies to fill up, making the competition even fiercer. Thanks to ‘the favor of TCM” of Chinese consumers, corporations will play a good deal in the TCM slimming market.
