China is the most populated country in the world. In 2010, the population of China was approximately 1.3 billion – approximately one-fifth of the global population. Population growth in China has been increasing with a slow growth rate due to the strict enforcement of the country’s one-child policy. The decline in the population of the young working age group and increasing elderly population is a matter of concern for policy planners.

The pharmaceutical industry in China was estimated at $161.8 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach approximately $466 billion by 2020 with a projected CAGR of 10.3%. The western medicine market of China in 2009 was approximately $21 billion. The medical device market size was approximately $14.8 billion in 2010 and is expected to reach approximately $38.4 billion by 2020 with a projected CAGR of 10.1%.
