Under new medical models, active and functional plant extract products have gained worldwide favor and broad market potential. Meanwhile, the continual introduction of favorable and industry support policies in China enables the industry to rapidly develop; the plant extract industry market size in China is expected to reach RMB 24.9 billion in 2018, and to exceed RMB 34.1 billion by 2022.
