In the wake of China's economic growth and enhanced disease prevention awareness, Chinese human vaccine market has been expanding. In 2012, Chinese human vaccine market valued RMB10.5 billion with the lot release quantity of roughly 773 million person-portions. Restricted by China's national conditions and policies, EPI vaccines still prevail in China and Chinese EPI vaccine market is almost monopolized by state-run enterprises represented by CNBG Tiantan Biological, Biological Products Institutes in Changchun, Chengdu, Wuhan, Shanghai and Lanzhou, and Institute of Medical Biology of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences in Kunming. In 2012, state-owned enterprises seized 81.5% of the vaccine lot release quantity in Chinese EPI vaccine market.
However, along with the gradual relaxed access to the vaccine market, private companies have sprung up in the Extra EPI vaccine market and acquired more market share. Meanwhile, foreign counterparts occupy considerable market share by virtue of their technological and product advantages. In 2012, private and foreign-funded enterprises occupied 49.9% and 22.1% (by lot release quantity) of Chinese Extra EPI vaccine market respectively. As for human rabies vaccine and varicella vaccine markets, they mastered more than 85% of each.

Moreover, many domestic vaccine companies are still planning overseas markets aggressively.
