Recently, you have heard the name ibuprofen frequently, it can reduce fever and relieve pain, it is one of the most commonly used drugs, but many people are snapping up ibuprofen, so that the inventory of e-commerce and offline drugstores are running out.
In fact, there is no need for ibuprofen, as a commonly used drug that has been around for 60 years, its production capacity is no longer a problem, let alone in front of manufacturing in China. Many people do not know that China is the world's largest producer of APIs, and the raw materials of many drugs have to be supplied by Chinese manufacturers.
Ibuprofen, for example, was mentioned in a report in 2017As the largest producer and exporter of ibuprofen in the world, China occupies the absolute market with a market share of more than 30%.
Among them, ibuprofen of Xinhua Pharmaceutical has an annual output of nearly 6000 tons of raw materials and exports of 4000 tons, with a cumulative total output of more than 10 billion tablets, becoming a leader in the industry and rapidly entering the international market.
However, this figure is from a few years ago, and the proportion of production capacity in China is well over 30%, according to a research report released by Dongxing Securities in 2020.At present, the total production capacity of ibuprofen API in China has reached more than 13000 tons, and the annual output has reached more than 9000 tons, which has become the largest export volume of ibuprofen API in the world.
Among the domestic production capacity, Xinhua Pharmaceutical's production capacity has reached 8000 tons. What is the concept? in terms of the dosage of ibuprofen,The output of Xinhua Pharmaceutical alone is enough for 3.3 billion people.
This is not over. In addition to Xinhua Pharmaceutical, there are many domestic companies that produce ibuprofen raw materials. Hendi Pharmaceutical already has a production capacity of 3500 tons and has built a new production capacity of 5000 tons, with a total production capacity of 8500 tons.
Stone Pharmaceutical Group also revealed a few days ago that the company's ibuprofen production and operation is normal, the company ibuprofen involved in tablet and granule dosage forms, a total annual production capacity of about 1 billion tablets (bags).
Even if the production capacity of other pharmaceutical companies does not count, these companies' ibuprofen raw material production capacity will almost monopolize most of the world's production capacity, and it will not be a problem to supply global use.
