The Price Of Florfenicol&Cefmetazole Sodium Raw Materials Continues To Rise

- Mar 02, 2021-

The current market price for Florfenicol has been above 530 yuan/KG, and the average price in the fourth quarter is basically 480 yuan/KG. Mainly affected by the tight supply of intermediates in the market, domestic manufacturers' shipments are small. It is expected that the price will continue to rise in the first quarter.

The recent price increase of cefmetazole sodium is due to the increase in the price of raw materials and the lack of manufacturers. The original price of domestic manufacturers has increased from 4,000 CNY/kg to the current 8,000 CNY/kg. There are 7 domestic companies that produce raw material for cefmetazole sodium, but only 4 of them are actually produced. Among the 4 manufactures, Chongqing Yaoyou mainly uses it for their own use and does not sell externally; Harbin Pharmaceutical Group Pharmaceutical General Factory has caused cephalosporin due to relocation and other problems.  not only stopped production but also had to purchased the material for their preparation production, which also caused tension in the market.

Although the prices of florfenicol and cefmetazole sodium are rising rapidly, whether the market can accept it remains to be seen!
