From scratch, what changes have China's pharmaceutical equipment industry showed?
China's pharmaceutical equipment industry has experienced a process from scratch, from slow development to rapid growth. With the rapid growth of China's pharmaceutical market and the large-scale GMP transformation of pharmaceutical companies, China's pharmaceutical equipment industry is welcoming a good opportunity for rapid development, and the number of pharmaceutical equipment enterprises is growing at an average annual rate of 20%. Then, what are the obvious changes in China's pharmaceutical equipment enterprises over the years?
"In the 40 years of reform and opening up, our company has changed from the past single-machine production to the current in-line production; from manual manufacturing to intelligent production; the company's equipment variety has increased rapidly, which greatly meets the needs of the market." It is a representation of a pharmaceutical equipment company in the domestic pharmaceutical equipment industry and the development of enterprises over the years.
It is understood that all products of the pharmaceutical equipment enterprise are all manufactured by order, without warehouse and without stock. The company produces related equipment according to customer requirements, and finally the customer comes to accept the inspection. From the previous design, to the equipment production, to the final commissioning, the production process of one equipment takes about 3 months, and if it is more complicated. , it will take about half a year.
The person in charge of the company said that the company has now achieved full automation. At the same time, the company can provide one-stop service because of its variety, large scale, and advantages of R&D team, independent property rights and patented products. Behind this company, it is actually a microcosm of the development of most pharmaceutical equipment companies in China.
From a policy point of view, the new GMP in 2010 puts higher requirements on pharmaceutical equipment, greatly improving the requirements for the production environment of aseptic preparations, online monitoring and quality management system construction. Many pharmaceutical companies need to improve production processes and reconstruction. The workshop and the purchase of equipment that is more in line with the new GMP aseptic production requirements for pharmaceutical products have brought prosperity to the pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment industry.
According to the industry, due to the low concentration of China's pharmaceutical equipment industry, most SMEs lack high value-added products with independent intellectual property rights. The stability of most pharmaceutical equipment varieties, the scale of production and intensification are low, and the products of different enterprises. The degree of difference is small, and the competition in the low-end pharmaceutical equipment market is fierce.
However, with the development of China's pharmaceutical equipment industry, the industry concentration will inevitably be further improved. It is inevitable that stronger enterprises will embark on the road of M&A development, and small and medium-sized enterprises with weak strength will be eliminated. At the same time, the concentration and scale of the downstream pharmaceutical industry has also forced the development of the upstream pharmaceutical equipment manufacturing industry.
At present, China's pharmaceutical equipment industry has gradually formed a group of pharmaceutical equipment manufacturers with strong research and development capabilities, independent intellectual property rights, and strong competitiveness in the middle and high-end market.
It is understood that in recent years, the state has also actively promoted the combination of production, education and research, and encouraged higher education institutions and scientific research institutions to transfer independent innovation results to enterprises, encourage more scientific and technological personnel to set up technology-based enterprises, and many large or innovative pharmaceutical equipment enterprises. We are also actively working with major universities to develop a practice base to produce more sophisticated products.
In addition, many pharmaceutical equipment companies that want to open up the market also use various mechanical expositions at home and abroad to showcase and launch new products developed by the company at the Expo, and compete for more customer resources.
In general, with the continuous improvement of medical reform and social security mechanisms, the state's policy orientation to the pharmaceutical equipment industry will be stronger and support will be greater. In this context, China's pharmaceutical equipment enterprises must seize Opportunity and courage to challenge can be invincible in the market.
