China is undergoing major healthcare reform and the bio and pharmaceutical market is expected to maintain double digit growth of approximately 20% and to be worth over $35 billion by 2015.
It is predicted that this rapid growth will contribute to China becoming the world’s second largest pharmaceutical market over the next three years.
According to ChinaBio, China’s Minister of Health commented that China plans to spend $11.8 billion to increase biopharma innovation in its 13th Five-Year Plan, which covers the period 2016-2020.
That is almost double the $6.3 billion it will spend in the current period, the 12th Five-Year Plan for 2011-2015, bringing its ten-year total to over $18 billion.
