Naperville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/04/2013 -- China’s diagnostic reagent industry has formed a certain market scale and basis, and is marching from the introduction stage to the growth stage. With the continuous growth in China’s medical care investment and per capita health care spending, the China’s diagnostic reagent market has a promising prospect.
In vitro diagnostic reagents account for more than 90.0% of the output of China’s diagnostic reagent industry. In 2011, the market scale of in vitro diagnostic reagents reached about RMB 11.4 billion in China, the industry will maintain a growth rate of 15%-20% in the future, and the market scale will hit RMB 20.8 billion in 2015.
At present, there are only a few integrated in vitro diagnostic reagent enterprises with strong strength in China’s diagnostic reagent market, including KHB and Fosun Pharma; other enterprises such as Da An Gene, BioSino, Leadman and Livzon have competitive advantages in specific fields such as biochemical diagnosis, immunodiagnosis, and molecular diagnosis. Meanwhile, China’s in vitro diagnostic reagent industry concentration is low. Among 300-400 enterprises, there are only about 20 enterprises with annual sales of more than RMB 100 million. The enterprises are generally small and have a few product varieties. In 2011, KHB, Da An Gene, BioSino, Leadman only occupied 3.8%, 2.3%, 1.9%, 1.6% of the market respectively.
As a high-tech industry, the profitability of the overall Chinese diagnostic reagent industry is high. In 2011, among major Chinese diagnostic reagent enterprises, KHB, Da An Gene, BioSino, Kinghawk, Livzon, Leadman all achieved a gross margin of more than 50%; Fosun Pharma reached a gross margin of 40.4%, since diagnostic reagent and instrument business accounts for a lower proportion of its revenue. With the improvement of industry concentration, it’s expected that the advantageous enterprises with strong capability of technological innovation and large production scale will obtain higher market share and profitability.
