Plaster patch industry development status?

As one of the four dosage forms of traditional Chinese medicine, plaster has a long history.

The plaster can reflect the principle of "sticking to the affected area, clearing the bones and collaterals, removing pain and easing the heart. As one of the main drugs for external use, the development potential is great, and the market share is steadily increasing.

At present, there are a large number of plaster manufacturers in China, and the production enterprises have formed three echelons. Among them, Guilin Tianhe Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Qizheng Group and Henan Lingrui Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. are the first echelon, followed by Yunnan Baiyao, Xuelian Upholgus Medicine, Huangshi Weicai and Jimin Pharmaceutical. In addition, the third echelon is formed by small factories producing sanitary materials or manufacturers attached to produce and operate such products, with more than 300 enterprises.

The main raw material of plaster is traditional Chinese medicine. At present, the important planting in China has not been large-scale. Most of them are planted and produced by farmers, and then sold to local supply and marketing cooperatives, medicine companies and medicine brokers. Farmers do not have the ability to bid here.

The difference between patch and paste

In the general Chinese Pharmacopoeia, patch refers to a thin sheet preparation made of raw materials and suitable materials for sticking on the skin, which can produce systemic or local effects. The patch has a backing layer, a drug reservoir, an adhesive layer and a protective layer to be removed before use.

Patch pastes include gel pastes (raw barb paste or gel paste) and rubber pastes (raw rubber paste).

Plaster commonly used backing materials are cotton, non-woven fabrics, paper, etc.; commonly used cover village materials are anti-adhesive paper, plastic film, aluminum foil polyethylene composite film, hard gauze, etc.

From the definition point of view, the difference between patch and plaster is whether it is made into paste, the transdermal patch belonging to the patch is the skeleton type or controlled release cotton type, while the adhesive patch is the raw material drug mixed with hydrophilic tact, gel loading is higher than the transdermal patch.
