Thanks to the stimulus of new medical system reform launched by the government in 2009, the pharmaceuticals industry of China remains steady growth.

In the first half of 2009, the output of China’s chemical medicine saw negative growth, and it didn’t change for the better until the latter half of 2009, and the output of main chemical drugs showed the trend of rapid growth, and peaked in December to 215,720 tons. Besides, November 2009 witnessed the highest year-on-year growth rate to 30.23%.

The import and export of China’s medicine products are growing alongside the steady rise in its output of medicines. The export of health care products, one quarter of China’s medicine export, suffered in the international market in the wake of financial crisis, shrinking China’s export of the health care products.

In early 2009, China’s export of pharmaceuticals reduced from 2008 on average. In February 2009, the export volume was no more than 35,020 tons. However, China’s import of pharmaceuticals remained stable due to the expanding domestic demand. In the first half of 2009, China import volume of pharmaceutics in 1H2009 was the same as that of the year 2008. Exceptionally, a relatively year-on-year sharp drop of import occurred in March, amounting to 5,240 tons, with a year-on-year decrease of 7,600 tons.

The financial crisis exerts negative influence on Chinese export market of pharmaceuticals. However, given that the Chinese Government has invested in medical care sector following the launch of national new medical reform policy, China’s pharmaceutical industry remains a sound development. As the recovery of international economy in 2010, this year will see a better development prospect in the pharmaceutical industry of China.
