The price trend of Lopinavir API recently showcased an increasing behavior during November 2022 due to a supply shortage in the German domestic market. However, European production cutbacks were increasingly reflected by the poor supply situation.

Consequently, the major issue resulting in low supply started with a significant uptake in demand for Lopinavir API from the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector in the German domestic market. However, buyers started trading due to the recent surge in orders backed by the insufficient product stocks in the German domestic market increased the price of Lopinavir API.

Before this month, the price of Lopinavir API decreased by 1.3% in October 2022 due to moderate inventories among German domestic merchants. However, the ChemAnalyst team witnessed an increment of around 4.2% in the price trend of Lopinavir API in November 2022.

Germany's economy will likely slide into a recession in 2023 due to its high exposure to the current energy crisis. This quarter, Germany is accelerating public spending to boost economic growth due to accelerating inflation. Even though the continued economic conditions and geopolitical tensions between the leading countries, Europe undoubtedly maintains strong market sentiments towards Lopinavir API.

The pharmaceutical industry currently faces problems with supply chains and a lack of skilled workers, due to which they failed to make their scheduled deliveries quoting booming demand and a shortage of material in the domestic market. The Lopinavir API prices have strengthened considering all these factors.

According to ChemAnalyst, "the Lopinavir API price trend is expected to follow downward momentum in the next month because the supply issue may not last long as companies will work with manufacturers to replenish supply as quickly as possible. Also, weak demand from downstream producers on the back of increasing inventories in the German market might impact the price of Lopinavir API.
