With the Chinese government setting its sights on becoming an important innovator of a variety of pharmaceutical products.

The market for active pharmaceutical ingredients in China is the second largest API market in the entire Asia Pacific region, second only to Japan. In 2017 alone, China accounted for over 20% of the revenues for the Asia Pacific API industry. With many national pharmaceutical companies dominating the domestic pharmaceutical industry, the Chinese market has recently witnessed the entry of many large foreign pharmaceutical companies setting up their plants in the country.
