The rapid development of the Chinese economy in the past three decades has changed people's dietary habits and reduced physical activities, which leads to an increasing incidence of obesity-related diseases. It is estimated that at the end of 2017, there were more than 100 million diabetic patients in China. The market size of diabetes drugs is also growing in China.
On Dec. 26, 2001, Novo Nordisk announced that Insulin Aspart (trade name: NovoRapid), the first and only insulin analog that can be used with insulin pumps, was approved by the FDA. Insulin Aspart starts working in 10 to 20 minutes after subcutaneous injection and can reduce postprandial blood glucose and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c). On the basis of Insulin Aspart, Novo Nordisk developed premixed insulin aspart containing soluble insulin aspart and protaminated insulin aspart of various proportions. The combination of the fast-acting form and the long-acting form allows patients to receive fewer injections over the course of the day. NovoLog Mix 70/30, containing 30% soluble insulin aspart and 70% protaminated insulin aspart, was approved by the FDA in Nov. 2001. Similar NovoLog Mix 50/50 was approved by the FDA in Aug. 2008. In Apr. 2005, NovoMix 30 (30% soluble insulin aspart and 70% protaminated insulin aspart), the first premixed insulin analog, was launched in China. From 2005 to 2017, the sales value of Insulin Aspart in China grew by over 100 times. The market size of Insulin Aspart in China exceeded CNY 200 million in 2017.
Because there are high technical barriers against the imitation of Insulin Aspart, by Oct. 2018, China's Insulin Aspart market is monopolized by Novo Nordisk's Insulin Aspart (NovoRapid). Several Chinese companies are applying for the CFDA's approval for generic Insulin Aspart. However, the launch of generic drugs will take several years. With an increasing number of diabetic patients, the market size of Insulin Aspart in China will maintain rapid growth in the next few years.

Background research defines the range of products and industries, which proposes the key points of the research. Proper classification will help clients understand the industry and products in the report.
Secondhand material research is a necessary way to push the project into fast progress. The analyst always chooses the data source carefully. Most secondhand data they quote is sourced from an authority in a specific industry or public data source from governments, industrial associations, etc. For some new or niche fields, they also "double-check" data sources and logics before they show them to clients.
Primary research is the key to solve questions, which largely influence the research outputs. The analyst may use methods like mathematics, logical reasoning, scenario thinking, to confirm key data and make the data credible.
The data model is an important analysis method. Calculating through data models with different factors weights can guarantee the outputs objective.
The analyst optimizes the following methods and steps in executing research projects and also forms many special information gathering and processing methods.
1. Analyze the life cycle of the industry to understand the development phase and space.
2. Grasp the key indexes evaluating the market to position clients in the market and formulate development plans
3. Economic, political, social and cultural factors
4. Competitors like a mirror that reflects the overall market and also market differences.
5. Inside and outside the industry, upstream and downstream of the industry chain, show inner competitions
6. Proper estimation of the future is good guidance for strategic planning.
