Key Market Trends

E-Pharmacy is Expected to Dominate the Fertility Supplement Market Over the Forecast Period

Over recent years, the internet has become an acknowledged way to buy products and services. Purchasing medications online is no exception. ?Online pharmacies are also one well-established distribution channel. They have been explored widely in developed markets, and they are steadily being adopted in emerging markets. ?Online drug distribution has many benefits associated with it. Disabled or homebound patients can have their medicines accessible and delivered to their homes. Shoppers relish a certain level of freedom of choice and privacy. The selection of products is massive, and medicines can be easily researched and compared.?

Furthermore, considering the recent COVID-19 situation, consumers prefer to purchase medicines online, as they want to avoid going to crowded places.

Moreover, the rising company focus on adopting various business strategies such as product launches, acquisitions, and partnerships to withhold their market position is also contributing to the market growth. For instance, in March 2022, Online pharmacy Ro acquired Dadi, a sperm collection and testing startup, for approximately USD 100 million. With this acquisition, the company is strengthening its presence in the fertility supplements markets, especially for erectile dysfunction. Also, in August 2020, Amazon launched an online pharmacy in Bangalore, India, with the increasing demand faced by online channels.
