Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/11/2018 -- Qingdao WanTuMing Biological Products Co., Ltd., Sioux Pharm, Inc., TSI Group Ltd., Pacific Rainbow International, Inc., Yantai Ruikangda Biochemical Products Co., Ltd., Shandong Runxin Biotechnology Co., Ltd., and Summit Nutritionals International, Inc., are some of the most prominent players operating in The Global Chondroitin Sulphate Market, finds Transparency Market Research (TMR) in a new study. While a majority of the market players seek clinical trials of novel products as means to achieve competitive advantage, stringent regulations for approval often create hindrances. For instance, over-sulfated chondroitin sulfate was identified as a contaminant in heparin originating from China by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2008.
This however did not deter companies from carrying out innovations. In April 2017, Gnosis got no objection GRAS from FDA for non-animal chondroitin, which is a good case in point for companies' relentless efforts to obtain approvals for their innovation. Such conscious steps taken toward innovation will play a key role in catapulting players to fore and also in turn help the market impetus in the coming years.
