VB12 continued its price uptrend, ending downtrend for the past few years. It’s a good opportunity for the domestic manufacturers, Hebei Yuxing Bio-Engineering Co., Ltd., Hebei Huarong Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. Besides, the price of vitamin B9 (folic acid) kept increasing since Jan. 2015, mainly due to the short supply. In 2014, the domestic enterprises reduced production under the impact of environmental protection burden.
