After years of development, China's retail market of ophthalmic products has formed such five medicine categories as visual fatigue relieving medicines, anti-inflammatory medicines, cataract relieving medicines, pseudo myopia medicines and anti-glaucoma medicines, among which visual fatigue relieving medicines occupy the largest market share of over 30%; anti-inflammatory medicines are closely followed, accounting for about 30% of the market share; cataract medicines and pseudo myopia medicines occupy over 10% of the market share while anti-glaucoma medicines occupy a relatively small share of only 1%.
It can be found from the research on sales of the ophthalmic preparation market by preparation formulations that eye drops occupy the largest market share, reaching over 80% of the whole ophthalmic preparation market. In fact, convenience and quick results of eye drops are favored by consumers, and most consumers have formed the preference for eye drop preparation formulation. This situation will not change in the short run. Therefore, the leading position of eye drop preparation will be firm and stable in the market.
In China's ophthalmic preparation market, Shandong Chia Tai Freda Pharmaceutical and Mentholatum (Zhongshan) Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. rank among the first group. Japan Santen Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and Jiangxi Tianshikang Traditional Chinese Medicine Co., Ltd. rank among the second group.
