Looking at the top 5 rankings for the 10 departments from all 32 target departments, while global major companies such as AZ, Pfizer and Bayer are in the top position, some Chinese companies such as CTTQ also ranked high.
As for Japanese companies, Santen was first place with 62.8% in ophthalmology. And Astellas came in fourth in urology and Eisai in fifth in neurology. (fig 1)
After the 6th place, Otsuka was 7th place in psychiatry, Dainippon Sumitomo was 9th place, Daiichi Sankyo was 9th place in respiratory, Takeda was 11th place in urology, etc. The result shows that Japanese companies seem to be penetrating the Chinese market
