Increasing diagnosis of chronic diseases is expected to lead to fast growth in retail pharmacies. The rising incidence of long-standing diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer requires prolonged medication and, thus, drives the growth and need for retail pharmacies in the market.

Pharmacies can cater to the needs of individuals with both complex and relatively simple medical conditions, while some also provide customised and highly personalised care to patients with chronic medical conditions.

Retail pharmacy trends

Emerging technologies and expanded customer care services in some of the largest pharmacies are helping them to earn customer loyalty. They help in keeping the customers informed about their healthcare while offering them seamless access to quality pharmaceutical drugs and medical products with complete security through the supply chain.

One of the popular trends in retail pharmacies is artificial intelligence (AI) tools, which enhance the service and stability of the supply chain. Integrating AI into the operations of retail pharmacies helps in improving the decision-making process, order fulfilment, demand forecasting, and monitoring of the transportation and storage environment. Some of the other trends in retail pharmacies include online pharmacy services, growth-driven data and analytics, virtual-retail pharmacy services, and product serialisation.
