  • 66,569 trade visitors made the trip in total;

  • 10% increase in attendance was registered in 2019;

Industry Relevance

CPhI China’s inaugural edition was held in 2001 alongside P-MEC China and in its earliest stages the international exhibition mostly worked to get in step with trends and innovations in the pharma industries to the West.

However, under the guidance of organisers UBM Sinoexpo Ltd, the event quickly transformed into a trend setter and currently stands as the second largest pharma market in the world. Editions are held annually in Shanghai, China at the SNIEC and are a mix of highly anticipated product launches and informational events as part of China Pharma Week.

The product categories visitors could investigate on sight include APIs, biopharmaceuticals, EP & Clean Tech, pharma excipients, pharma machinery, pharma logistics, finished dosage, laboratory equipment, CMO & CRO, animal health and feed, automation, natural extracts and packaging materials.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Given CPhI China’s status as an industry leader on a world scale, it’s safe to assume that you will be networking with the most powerful people in the business. The last performance report showed that a little over 27% of all trade visitors occupy high position of power – CEOs, general managers, presidents and directors. The biggest percentage – a little below 49% – is dedicated to the middle management positions – managers, project managers and department supervisors.

If we’re to look into professional backgrounds, we see that every link in the pharmaceutical industry chain is on the show floor from engineering and manufacturing to distribution and sales. Outside China, the markets with biggest delegation numbers are from Asia (73%) with Korea, Japan, Vietnam and India as standouts. From Europe, there’s Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK.
