According to the WHO's estimate, infertility affects 15% to 20% of the
global population. Survey data shows that in 2017, the incidence of
infertility among married couples in China was 10%, more than double the
4.8% in 1984. As environmental pollution intensifies and lifestyle
changes, the incidence of infertility is increasing and infertility is
increasingly prevalent among Chinese young people. About 15% to 20%
women of childbearing age in China are troubled by infertility.

As the biggest cause of female infertility in China, follicular
dysplasia syndrome resulting from endocrine dysfunction accounts for
over 40% of infertility cases. In addition to reasonable adjustments to
menstrual period and etiological treatment, for fertilization, it is
necessary to adopt an ideal solution to promote the development and
maturation of follicles in clinical treatment.

Since 2015 when the Chinese government relaxed its family planning
policy, sex hormone drugs have been growing rapidly, and the infertility
treatment and IVF, an assisted reproductive technology (ART), have
attracted much attention. In China's end markets of ART and sex hormone
drugs, macromolecular bioengineered drugs such as Recombinant Human
Follitropin, Recombinant Follitropin Beta, Recombinant Human Chorionic
Gonadotropin, and Human Lutropin alfa are taking the place of
small-molecule chemicals.

Recombinant Human Lutropin alfa is a glycoprotein obtained by genetic
engineering technique. It can combine with the luteinizing
hormone/chorionic gonadotropin (LH/CG) receptor on the ovariole sheath
(and granular layer) and the Leydig cell membrane. For women who lack
luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) to ovulate,
the use of LH can increase the level of estradiol secreted by the
follicle and stimulate follicular development.

Merck Serono's Recombinant Human Lutropin alfa (trade name: Luveris) was
approved to be sold in China in 2008. In 2017, the sales value exceeded
CNY 30 million. By the end of 2018, China's Recombinant Human Lutropin
alfa market will be monopolized by Merck Serono.

According to this analysis, multinational companies such as Merck Serono
and Merck Sharp & Dohme dominate China's fertility drug market.
Meanwhile, Chinese companies such as Livzon Pharmaceutical Group Inc.,
GeneScience Pharmaceuticals Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Xianju Pharmaceutical
Co., Ltd., Hybio Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., and Chia Tai Tianqing
Pharmaceutical Group Co., Ltd. are also launching generic drugs. It is
expected that the pattern of China's Recombinant Human Lutropin alfa
market will change in the next few years.

In 2015, the Chinese government relaxed its family planning policy that
had been implemented for over three decades, allowing each couple to
have two children. In China, about 90 million women of childbearing age
are eligible to have a second child. And an estimated 30% of them have
the desire. Therefore, China's fertility drug market is promising.
