- Market access is more challenging than before for foreign players, but innovative products still have a bright future, especially for newcomers on the market and smart product portfolio management is a good way to adapt to the necessity to localise production for the Chines market.
- The transition for the already established players is brutal and challenging, but at the same time, the China market attractiveness and potential remains a main investment driver.
- A CDMO strategy approach may be a new business model to be developed for newcomers as well as established companies moving towards a transition of production in China for China.
