Imexpharm is unwavering in its commitment to quality, dedicating 5% of its revenue in 2023 to R&D activities. This investment has yielded impressive results, with 91 research and development projects undertaken, 15 of which have already been launched in the market, giving the company a competitive edge in innovative pharmaceutical products. Beyond R&D, Imexpharm is expanding its EU MA license portfolio, identifying 30 potential target products. Last year, the company registered an additional 11 EU MAs, bringing the total number to 27 EU MAs covering 11 products. To further bolster its offerings of innovative and patented drugs for chronic disease treatment and reduce healthcare costs for patients, Imexpharm is actively pursuing international collaborations for technology transfer in the production of patented and innovative drugs. In February, Imexpharm partnered with Genuone Sciences Inc., a leading Korean pharmaceutical company, to transfer technology for the production of diabetes and cardiovascular drugs.

Amidst a dynamic business landscape and evolving disease patterns, antibiotics remain a cornerstone of the pharmaceutical market, accounting for 12% of the total market value. According to IQVIA, this segment is poised for rapid growth, with a projected CAGR of 9.2% until 2027. This surge in demand is propelling Imexpharm to reinforce its traditional strengths in this domain, leveraging its EU-GMP compliant manufacturing facilities to produce high-quality antibiotics.
In response to the growing healthcare demands posed by environmental pollution, food safety concerns, and work-related stress, Imexpharm is strategically expanding its product portfolio to encompass a wider range of medications for respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, and diabetic conditions. These therapeutic groups are projected to witness an annual growth rate of 11.6% to 13.2% by 2027. To meet this burgeoning demand and further solidify its position as a leading pharmaceutical provider, Imexpharm has ambitious plans to expand its Non-Antibiotic product line and construct a new state-of-the-art IMP5 manufacturing facility in the Quang Khanh Industrial Park, Dong Thap province. This new product line will feature a comprehensive range of medications for cardiovascular, diabetes, ENT, cough, and digestive ailments, catering not only to the domestic market but also to export opportunities. The company anticipates taking possession of the industrial park land and commencing construction in the second quarter of 2024. The new facility is scheduled for completion and operationalization by 2026-2027.
Imexpharm has unveiled a set of game-changing strategies that will propel the company towards its ambitious 2030 vision. With a bold target of achieving a staggering half a billion USD in revenue, Imexpharm is poised to solidify its position as a global pharmaceutical powerhouse. This strategic masterstroke will not only cement Imexpharm's dominance in the global market but also enable the company to meet the ever-growing demand for high-quality healthcare solutions in Vietnam and the wider region.
