The Chinese pharmaceutical distribution market has developed steadily but at a slower rate in recent years. The industry rose by 10.4% year on year to RMB1.8393 trillion in 2016 and is expected to hit RMB2.9784 trillion in 2021 at a growth rate of 10% over the next five years driven by favorable policies and downstream demand.

Western medicine sales dominate the Chinese pharmaceutical distribution market, accounting for 74.4% in 2016; East China and Central South China hold relatively higher percentages, up to 61.1% together in 2016.

The country has developed a competitive landscape where there are national pharmaceutical distributors represented by China National Pharmaceutical Group Corporation (Sinopharm), China Resources Pharmaceutical Commercial Group, Shanghai Pharmaceuticals and Jointown Pharmaceutical Group and regional ones represented by NanJing Pharmaceutical, Guangzhou Pharmaceuticals, Chongqing Pharmaceutical, Huadong Medicine, Sichuan Kelun, Zhejiang Int'l, Realcan Pharmaceutical, Guangxi Liuzhou Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and Luyan Pharma Co., Ltd. which compete with each other.

By the end of Nov 2016, there were 12,975 pharmaceutical wholesalers nationwide which competed fiercely in a lowly concentrated market. Top3 champions seized only a combined 28.7% share of the market in 2016.


As medical reform policies are implemented and consolidation in pharmaceutical wholesale industry accelerates, the Chinese pharmaceutical distribution market will show trends as follows: 1) pharmaceutical E-commerce will become an important model; 2) pharmaceutical supply chain management will be upgraded; 3) capital market will play a bigger role in integration of enterprises; 4) cross-border integration of pharmaceuticals and E-commerce will continue; 5) stiffer competition will improve market concentration; 6) Wholesale-retail integration will spur industry consolidation.
