I am not aware about the total Chinese market size for these type of products. But, our market share is about 85 per cent in the animal packaging segment and about 15% in the human medicines packaging segment. It is because our company began its production first by products in the animal segment. So, we are there in animal segment right from the beginning of our company. But in human
segment we came later.
Do you export your products?
Yes. We started selling our products overseas from 2011. Our products are sold in Europe, USA, Canada, Israel, Australia, France, Russia, Thailand, Malaysia and UK. Approximately 15 per cent of our products are exported. In the animal pharma segment, top 10 companies in the segment are our clients.
What are the future plans of the company?
We will be focusing more now on functional packaging solutions in medicines for pharmaceutical companies and for the patients. We will focus on the way to solve the problems they all are facing to make the medicines safer and to make the people healthier. We will not only produce the normal plastic bottles just for storage and transportation, but we will also provide more value pharma companies and humans. Our R&D is searching for very different solutions for our clients, so that we can figure out which way is more important, how further value can be added. We have five years plan. In overseas market this year we will go to North America and Europe. For North America we have Vietnam database. We already have five types of products in the USA market. We will focus more on very competitive products and making pharmaceutical companies to be stricter for their packaging. In China there are many small companies in pharmaceutical and pharma packaging sectors. More and more Chinese pharmaceutical companies are operating on USFDA conditions. So, it is progressing. Now, we also will be applying USFDA norms and European standards. We have already started taking some steps in that direction like having 3rd party check and certification for quality.
