Azithromycin Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


The azithromycin sector witnessed positive price growth in the first and second quarters of 2023. The rise was gradual in the first quarter but was steep in the second quarter. This upward trajectory in the prices of Azithromycin was supported by the decline in inventories and rising demand from the end-user sector.

Also, after a long period of stagnancy in China due to the lunar holiday season, the market regained its production potential. In the second quarter, the downstream industries raised their number of orders, and with rising inflation rates and soaring energy production prices, the trend of Azithromycin inclined significantly.


The market for Azithromycin was stagnant in the first quarter of 2023 as the purchasing potential of the pharmaceutical sector and the supply of the product in the region balanced each other. However, in the second quarter, the price trend inclined significantly. In Q2, the demand from the domestic and international players rose remarkably with the positive movement of the regional market. In addition, the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war caused the cost of energy production to rise, and as a result, the price trend of Azithromycin moved swiftly towards a positive trajectory.

North America

The price trend seen in the European region was also followed in North America. In the first quarter, the price trend increased gradually, supported by the consistent demand from the pharmaceutical sector and ease in trading activities.

In the second quarter, the rise in imports from China and increasing production activities of the downstream sector influenced the azithromycin market. In addition to this, the inflation in the region declined, and the energy cost surged, which further supported the azithromycin market.

A member of the macrolide class of antibiotics, azithromycin has a broad spectrum of activity. It is frequently used to treat a number of bacterial infections, including skin infections, sexually transmitted diseases, and infections of the respiratory tract. By blocking the creation of bacterial proteins, azithromycin stops the growth and spread of bacteria.

Its lengthy half-life, which enables once-daily dosing and provides patients with convenience, is one of its important characteristics. Additionally, it has significant tissue penetration, making it possible to treat infections in different bodily regions effectively. Its favorable side effects and suitability for those with penicillin allergies make azithromycin a desirable and frequently given antibiotic.

Production Processes

The production of intermediate molecules is the first step in the synthesis of azithromycin. Amination, acylation, esterification, cyclization, purification, isolation, and quality control are the next steps. The intermediate component is processed to attach molecules with amine and acyl functional groups, which are then subjected to cyclization to combine all the compounds into one finished product, in this case azithromycin.

In a very certain temperature and environment, the process is watched over and managed. Following cyclization, the chemical compound is refined and isolated to guarantee complete purity and retain the chemical compound's quality.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
