Key biopharma trends in Asia

CFDA reforms in full stride in China

The recent China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) reforms are more optimistic fundamentals that aim to support industry growth through innovation. Over the past few years, the CFDA has made significant strides in terms of addressing critical gaps in the system. Furthermore, there have been several reforms published on the drug-registration policy. These policies have been designed to improve the registration process and to encourage companies in the biopharmaceutical industry to bring innovation to China. This includes therapies for addressing severe and rare diseases and fast-tracking approval for therapies. As a result of these new drug approvals, a record number of approvals and new product launches were seen over the last couple of years. The biopharma industry in China is accelerating against the backdrop of the new CFDA reform.

Price reforms in Japan

The Japanese Ministry of Health in 2017 proposed to overhaul the current drug pricing regulations. This reform will affect both the new drug pricing and in market pricing revisions across all drug categories including off-patent long-listed products, patented prescription drugs, and generics. This includes changes such as narrowing price maintenance premium (PMP) for patented products. The PMP will now apply only to selected drugs and full premium will be awarded only to a subset of companies. The scope of the premium will be limited to innovative drugs and the amount of premium will be matched to a company’s contribution to R&D.

Emerging fund pools in Southeast Asia and China

In China, there has been an upward trend in the expansion of reimbursement of innovative drugs. Furthermore, companies in the biopharma industry in China have also started to experiment with new models to improve patients’ access to medicines. China remains an important growth engine for companies. With these biopharma trends and changing outlook in China, the country remains a highly lucrative market and an important growth engine for companies in the biopharma industry.
