What are the production characteristics of pharmaceutical intermediates?
Looking at the entire industry, there are currently six characteristics in the production of pharmaceutical intermediates in my country:
First, most of the production enterprises are private enterprises, with flexible operation and small investment scale, basically between several million and 120 million yuan; second, the geographical distribution of production enterprises is relatively concentrated, mainly located in Taizhou, Zhejiang and Jinjiang, Jiangsu. The third is that as the country pays more and more attention to environmental protection issues, the pressure on manufacturers to build environmental protection treatment facilities is increasing; fourth, the product update speed is fast. Generally, after a product is on the market for 3 to 5 years, its profit margin will drop significantly, which forces enterprises to continuously develop new products or improve production processes in order to maintain high production profits; fifth, due to the high production profits of pharmaceutical intermediates For chemical products, the production process of the two is basically the same, so more and more small chemical companies have joined the ranks of producing pharmaceutical intermediates, resulting in increasingly fierce competition in the industry. The profit margin of intermediates is low, and the production process of APIs and pharmaceutical intermediates is similar. Therefore, some enterprises have not only produced intermediates, but also started to produce APIs by taking advantage of their own advantages.
