Affluence, an Aging Population, and Anticipated Rx-to-OTC Switches Boost a Healthy $32 Billion OTC Market in China, According to Kline
Date:11/27/2012

therapeutic products covered in this report represent top-selling prescription medications that could be appropriate switch candidates. For Rx-to-OTC switches in China, there is no market exclusivity for a brand once it makes the switch. Consequently, any pharmaceutical company that has manufacturing capabilities can also manufacture and sell the same OTC drug once the switch sponsor has received approval from the SFDA. In some cases, the costs of conducting clinical research to support safe use of a medication as an OTC are daunting for many companies in China and are likely to be undertaken by large local or multinational companies. Other smaller firms who are not interested in investing the considerable resources to support a switch application can manufacture OTC versions of these active ingredients once another company gains SFDA approval. The lack of market exclusivity can also be seen as a deterrent for some companies pursuing Rx-to-OTC switch in China.

"The many challenges of this market certainly cannot be ignored," continues Mahecha, "but the sheer size of the market and its manifold expansion, targeted by astute marketing and carefully controlled brand management, mean the potential returns are real. China is opening up and although it can be a daunting market to navigate, the demand for effective and trusted OTC medications is a valuable foothold for companies with vision."
