The global Online Pharmacy Market size is expected to reach USD 42.7 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Million Insights. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2021 to 2028. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing number of smartphone users and rising internet penetration, mostly in developing regions, including Asia Pacific, South America, and Sub-Saharan Africa. In developed economies, the market is driven by the increasing self-medication by the consumers due to accessibility, time efficiency, and economic factors. Moreover, technological developments in the IoT and artificial intelligence are likely to drive the market owing to the sophisticated and convenient consumer experience.

However, the market growth is restrained by the lack of physical evaluation of the medicines and inadequate security of the personal, financial, and health data. Some online pharmacies fail to provide sufficient surety of the secure transaction, which discourages consumers to place the order. The Covid-19 pandemic that resulted in the lockdown and restrictions worldwide forced consumers to incline towards the digital and online route for their everyday needs. Many consumers in order to access medicines adopted online pharmacies during the pandemic as the government initiatives helped online pharmacies to flourish during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The vitamins and minerals type segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 11.5% from 2021 to 2028. Vitamins and minerals deficiency is responsible for various health issues including anemia and osteoporosis as proven by many studies. In addition, the rising consumption of fast food and junk food is leading to the increasing deficiency of vitamins and minerals. The growing trend of health consciousness and health tracking is encouraging consumers to opt for vitamin and mineral supplements. This shift in consumer behavior is likely to drive the segment over the forecast period.
