With an increase in dermal OTC product sales, the segment will expand as the prevalence of various dermatological conditions rises.

Furthermore, the demand for weight loss products among obese people to reduce the burden of associated health risks including high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, and osteoarthritis would affect product demand. As a result, consumer preference for online pharmacies will have a positive impact on industry growth in the coming years due to convenience and favorable services.

Market Dynamics


Increasing internet penetration and change in consumer behavior  

Some of the factors driving growth include increased internet penetration around the world, improved healthcare infrastructure, rapid population aging, and increased consumer knowledge of e-commerce. One of the main factors driving market growth is a change in consumer behavior, with an increased demand for convenience. In addition, the growing use of e-commerce and digital technology in the healthcare industry is expected to boost growth.

Rising COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown situations

The rising COVID-19 outbreak has increased demand for e-pharmacies, especially in areas where strict lockdown scenarios are in place and the number of COVID-19 patients is at an alarming rate. People living in these areas who have diseases other than COVID-19 need prescription supplies, and since patients are unable to leave their homes to buy drugs due to the lockout, e-pharmacy proves to be a successful option for meeting this demand.


Increased competition and sale of unapproved medications

The industry is harmed by the existence of a large number of illegal e-pharmaceuticals around the world. These unlicensed pharmacies sell medications that have not been approved for sale. From these e-Pharmaceuticals, there is always the possibility of getting counterfeit and contaminated drugs with incorrect active ingredients.
