Medicine intermediates are categorized as fine chemical products, the production of which currently becomes a major emerging industry of international chemical industry.  Industry Analysis

With the development of over 30 years, China's chemical raw materials and intermediates needed in pharmaceutical production can basically be produced domestically and only a small part needs to be imported.
