The incidences of common skin redness, itching and rashes and respiratory allergies are rising as China's economy develops, the living environment and dietary structure change, and environmental pollution intensifies, which drives the growth of the antihistamine market.

Developed by Schering-Plough which has been acquired by Bayer, Loratadine (trade name: Clarityne) was first launched in Belgium in 1988 and then sold in several European countries. In Apr. 1993, it was approved by the FDA to be marketed in the U.S. In Sept. 2002, it was launched in Japan. In November of the same year, the FDA approved Clarityne as a non-prescription drug.

According to research, in Jun. 1993, imported Loratadine tablets were approved to be sold in China under the trade name Clarityne. In 2005, the CFDA approved Clarityne as a non-prescription drug for its excellent effect and long-tested safety. Many Chinese companies have launched generic Loratadine products in the dosage forms of oral tablets, capsules, granules, syrup and compound preparation.

The market competition is fierce but the brand-name drug still has great advantages. In 2017, Shanghai Schering-Plough Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and Schering-Plough occupied about 65% market share by sales value. But the market share of the brand-name drug showed a downward trend.

Loratadine has secured a place on the market by advantage of long-lasting and quick-acting effect and rare adverse reactions. However, with the increasing number of Loratadine manufacturers and intensifying competition on the market, the average price of Loratadine is declining.

It is expected that as the incidences of allergic diseases continue to increase, China's Loratadine market will still has some growth potential in the next few years.
