Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2015 -- Reviewing the domestic vitamin market in May, VE market presented a downturn: oversupply made its price low. Some new entrants have penetrated into VE market, such as Jilin Beisha Pharmaceutical Co.,Ltd. and Fujian Haixin Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., which will weaken the presence of the current leading enterprises. It's an inevitable trend that the VE price will remain fall in the near future. Due to overcapacity, the price of VB2 kept falling. Under such circumstance, the leader Hubei Guangji Pharmaceutical Co.,Ltd. suffered losses in Q1 2015. VC showed an upward price trend after a continual fall. Stringent environmental protection policy and the upturn of downstream pig farming in future will push up VC price.

As for company dynamic, Nantong Acetic Acid went listed in Shanghai Stock Exchange on 18 May, 2015, which will extend the industrial chain of its 3-cyanopyridine to further develop nicotinamide and nicotinic acid business. Other enterprises like Lonza Group and Vertellus Specialties Inc., launched nicotinamide production in 2014 successively, further intensifying market competition.

According to the data issued by the Ministry of Agriculture of the People's Republic of China in mid-May 2015, the number of live pig in farm was 386.92 million head in April, down by 9.71% YoY and 0.02% MoM. The number of adult sow in farm was 39.71 million head, declining by 14.9% YoY and 1.7% MoM, recording a 20-month consecutive fall. At the same time, the pork's price started to rise. According to the National Development and Reform Commission, the pork's price ended a 14-month decline in April, pig farming turned loss into gain. It's probably that the number of adult sow and live pig in farm will be on the rise, this is beneficial for increasing demand for vitamin from feed industry.

Since Jan. 2015, the domestic market price of VB2 kept falling, under the background of overcapacity and intense competition. In H2, the price is expected to rebound, as the leading enterprises are willing to cut VB2 production to decrease inventory.

Attracted by the increasing supply of 2,3,5-trimethyl hydroquinone in China, more and more new entrants have penetrated into VE industry, lowering the concentration. Further, this made VE oversupply and drove down VE price.

More and more entrants have penetrated into vitamin drink industry, the competition becomes intense.

On 28 April, 2015, PKU Healthcare published its annual report of 2014 and the Q1 2015 financial report. Accordingly, PKU Healthcare disclosed losses in both 2014 and Q1 2015, influenced by the downturn in API market. In the future, the company will make transformation and build a whole industrial chain of healthcare service to get rid of the existing operation predicament.

In Q1 2015, China's export volume of VE had a YoY growth, but its export price underwent a sharp fall.

In Q1 2015, China's export volume of VB6 decreased year on year, mainly due to a sharp fall to Germany.
