Organizations reported that 80 percent of the world's population depends on herbal medicines. The global market for herbal medicines currently stands at over US$60 billion and is growing steadily.
International sales of herbal medicines are growing 10 to 15 percent annually on the average. Malaysia generates US$1.2 billion annual sales with over 8,000 registered herbal products and 80 registered herbal manufacturers. Thailand earns US$ 71 million while China with a vast 1.3 billion population generates US$5.7 billion in annual sales.
Meanwhile, the Department of Trade and Industry's Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions estimates the domestic market's size at only P100M or less than US$2M.
Herbal products, a CITEM priority sector received regulatory approval for sambong, lagundi, tsaang gubat, akapulko, and yerba buena. Most herbal products come in tea or beverage form while herbal crude extracts of some plants are in capsule form.
The Department of Science and Technology's Philippine Council for Health Research and Development introduced recently yerba buena in the market through local pharmaceutical leader Pascual Laboratories.
PCHRD signed [when] a five-year non-exclusive license agreement with Pascual Laboratories, Inc., one of the country's largest Filipino-owned companies, to transfer the technology for the manufacture of yerba buena in tablet form. The agreement also covers the marketing rights to PL to sell the product in the Philippines and overseas.
Yerba buena, an analgesic or a pain-reliever in tablet form is expected to reap favorable response from consumers following the success of lagundi and sambong.
Lagundi tablet and lagundi pediatric drops for cough and asthma and sambong tablet for diuretic and urolithiasis are successful commercialized herbal medicines in the local and selected international markets.
The notable shift of many people from synthetic drugs to natural alternative counterparts attracts investments drug manufacturers while promoting a healthy lifestyle to consumers.
