STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This BCC Research report analyzes the global trends in OTC drugs and dietary supplements market. OTC medicines have been on the market since the 1970s; however, the late 19th and early 20th century witnessed certain changes and a positive approach globally that encouraged the business of OTC medicines and dietary supplements. The market for OTC medicines around the globe is witnessing new dynamics. This new segment of medicines has encouraged people toward self-care and self-medication on one hand, and on the other hand regulatory agencies are still in a dilemma in regard to the provision of medicines into the hands of people without supervision. The journey of self-medication was initiated as the treatment of common primary health conditions which is now transforming into wellness management. Consumers worldwide in both developed and developing nations are responding to self-care due to its many benefits. However, regulatory bodies, understanding that any medication comes with side effects, are cautious about encouraging self-medication practices. The permutations in drug approvals such as differentiating drugs as pharmacy only and general sales hesitance in approving point-of-sale other than pharmacies show that regulatory authorities are still in the process of finalizing regulatory policies for the OTC drugs.The objective of this study is to assess future prospects and opportunities in OTC drugs and dietary supplementsglobally. The report delves into questions such as: Which countries are establishing potential markets? Is the shift from prescription to nonprescription status still an effective strategy? What strategies current leaders in OTC drugs and dietary supplement manufacturers are adopting? How point of sales and channels of distribution drive sales of OTC drugs and dietary supplements? And what categories of OTC medicines will grow through 2018?

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

Many nations are still in the process of developing strong regulatory policies for OTC drugs and define review process for reclassifying drugs from prescription to nonprescription status. These nations have yet to develop strong safety and quality standards and labeling policies for the OTC drugs. These developments will provide an opportunity to manufacturers and marketers of OTC medicines and dietary supplements to expand organically. The study will engender understanding as to the length and breadth of the market as well as encourage strategical thinking for entering into new potential markets, design marketing strategies and plan on the basis of improving regulatory approach of many nations.
