China Pharmaceutical Contract Manufacturing Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Manufacturing Process Type (Sterile Manufacturing, and Non-Sterile Manufacturing), By Product Type (Over-The-Counter (OTC) Drugs, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), Finished Dosage Formulation, and Others), By Route of Administration (Oral Administration, Inhaled Administration, Parenteral Administration, and Others), By Service (R&D, Manufacturing, and Non-Clinical Service) Forecast, 2022-2028
The China pharmaceutical contract manufacturing market is growing at a CAGR of around 12.1% during the forecast period. The major factor that drives the growth of the market includes the major companies in the pharmaceutical contract manufacturing market are expanding their manufacturing capacity in China. For instance, In August 2020, Bayer AG announced the submission of the regulatory application seeking the approval of vericiguat in China. Vericiguat is an investigational oral, once-daily, first-in-class soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC)-stimulator being developed to treat patients with symptomatic chronic heart failure with an ejection fraction less than 45%. Vericiguat is being jointly developed with MSD (a tradename of Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, NJ, USA).
Additionally, the increasing non-communicable diseases, such as (Cardiovascular disease) CVD, and cancer, with the increasing geriatric population is also boosting the market growth. For instance, the incidence of prostate cancer has increased rapidly in China in recent years. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, China witnessed around 4.2 million new cancer incidences and over 2.8 million cancer mortalities. Moreover, the country is also aimed to reduce cardiovascular events in patients with increased triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. It shows the efforts of China contract manufacturers towards drug development, which in turn is projected to increase the China pharmaceutical contract manufacturing market. In addition, the increasing development of China pharma trades to the US pharma industry and rising demand for biosimilars is also driving the market growth. However, issues over quality control and stringent government regulations are creating a hindrance in the growth of China's pharmaceutical contract manufacturing market. Additionally, increasing advances in drug discovery & development and MAH (Marketing Authorization Holder) pilot program are expected to offer significant opportunities for market growth.
