India Over The Counter (OTC) Drugs Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027

Market Overview:

The India over the counter (OTC) drugs market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16.87% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs are non-prescription drugs that can be consumed by individuals without requiring a prescription from a healthcare professional. They are commonly effective and safe for consumption, provided the directions mentioned on the label or medicine strip are followed. A wide range of OTC drugs is available in the market, including cough, cold, and flu medicines, dermatology products, analgesics, gastrointestinal drugs, and vitamins, minerals, and supplements (VMS).  They are essential in treating recurring ailments, such as allergies, pain, headache, toothache and menstrual cramps. They are easily available across hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, online retail channels, and supermarkets and hypermarkets.

India Over The Counter (OTC) Drugs Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the escalating preference for self-medication across India. This can be attributed to the high consulting fees charged by healthcare professionals. In addition to this, a considerable rise in the geriatric population that is susceptible to developing multiple ailments is providing a boost to product sales. Several initiatives and schemes undertaken by the government to reduce the prices and promote the sales of OTC drugs are also providing an impetus to the market growth in the country. Apart from this, the shifting preference of the consumers towards e-commerce websites has led to the extensive sales of OTC drugs via online pharmacies, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by continual product innovations and increasing investments in extensive research and development (R&D) activities. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include the inflating disposable income levels of the masses, the growing stress levels among working professionals, and the rising health awareness among individuals.
