Advantages Of Chemical And Pharmaceutical Intermediates

Oct 19, 2020

On May 22, 2020, outsourcing production will migrate to Asia, with huge market space. Chinese made pharmaceutical intermediates have obvious advantages. In the future, it is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 18% (the global average growth rate is about 12%). The cost of manufacturing in China is 30-50% lower than that in Europe and the United States. The market demand maintains a high growth, the infrastructure is better than that of India, and the talent reserve is rich. However, there are fewer APIs and preparations certified by FDA. Therefore, it is judged that China will continue to take the lead in the manufacture of pharmaceutical intermediates. However, China's outsourcing market value will only exceed 5 billion US dollars in the future.


The chemical products of chemical and pharmaceutical intermediate manufacturers do not need the production license of drugs. They can be produced in ordinary chemical plants. As long as they reach some level, they can be used for the synthesis of drugs. China needs more than 2000 kinds of raw materials and intermediates for chemical industry every year, and the demand is more than 2.5 million tons. After years of development, the chemical raw materials and intermediates for pharmaceutical production in China can be basically matched, and only a small part needs to be imported. Moreover, due to the rich resources and low price of raw materials, many intermediates have been exported.


According to statistics, there will be a peak of patent drug expiration in 2014. Among them, there will be a peak in 2014, with 326 patent drugs expiring. 2010 and 2017 are the two relatively peak years before and after, with 205 and 242 patent drugs expiring respectively. The main varieties of expired drugs are anti infection, endocrine, nervous system, cardiovascular, and the market scale is huge. Moreover, with the aggravation of the aging population in China, the domestic demand for related drugs will also increase year by year in the future. Domestic pharmaceutical intermediate enterprises will benefit from the rapid development of the pharmaceutical industry market.

Chemical intermediates are intermediate products in the production of products. For example, if you want to produce a product, you can produce it from the intermediate to save cost. Pharmaceutical production needs a large number of special chemicals. Most of these chemicals were produced by the pharmaceutical industry itself. However, with the deepening of social division of labor and the progress of production technology, the pharmaceutical industry has transferred some pharmaceutical intermediates to chemical enterprises for production. Pharmaceutical intermediates are fine chemical products, and the scope of chemical ZD intermediates is too large.
