Type 2 diabetes and obesity are some of the biggest health challenges in Mainland China. Even though several drug classes have been available to treat these patients, very few have been able to improve the diabetes control rate or offer weight loss or cardiovascular benefits to patients. The anticipated launch and uptake of several GLP-1 receptor agonists in China—particularly oral semaglutide (Novo Nordisk’s Rybelsus) and tirzepatide (Eli Lilly)—and the incorporation of these therapies into China’s National Reimbursement Drug List (NRDL) will be the key drivers of growth in the T2D and obesity markets in China. Additionally, following the recent reforms in China’s regulatory and reimbursement landscape, manufacturers—both domestic and multinational—will be increasingly incentivized to enter China’s healthcare market over the coming years. Thus, significant commercial opportunity will exist for novel GLP-1 receptor agonists to treat patients suffering with metabolic and cardiovascular disorders in China.
