How can you navigate the risks and challenges to realise the enormous opportunities of the Chinese pharma market? Gain insights from experts with on-the-ground experience of the Chinese market and specialist knowledge of the pharma supply chain by downloading the exclusive, complimentary report. 

China has become one of the world’s foremost drivers for global production and demand (6.6 per cent GDP increase in 2018). With more available income and an ageing population the demand on public health products and services in the country is booming. However, this growing market is also targeted with counterfeit products, raising the awareness of the need for quality. Big pharmaceutical players entering China must overcome some specific challenges and cannot rely on the usual strategies employed in Western economies.

DS Smith has deployed a specialised Pharmaceutical & Medical business unit with a team of strategists and a dedicated value proposition to offer a range of solutions all along the supply chain, worldwide, including China.
