Press Release Description

Thailand Pharmacy Retail Market to Expand at 3.2% CAGR from 2024 to 2030

The Thailand Pharmacy Retail Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period of 2024-30, cites MarkNtel Advisors in the recent research report. The retail pharmacy sector in Thailand experienced fluctuating growth due to some pharmacy closures for violating the FDA's GPP requirements. Despite this, the industry is considered to be in a growth stage, driven by increasing competition among retail pharmacies offering extensive product ranges and value-added services. The franchise model has gained popularity, enabling businesses to expand rapidly.

Collaborations between state hospitals and neighborhood chains have benefitted patients under the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) scheme and contributed to the growth of pharmacy stores. Thailand's aging population has led to a shift in the country's demographic profile, increasing the demand for pharmaceuticals, including nutritional supplements, to manage chronic illnesses like diabetes and hypertension.

Moreover, the expanding market is attributed to increased government health expenditure, a rise in non-communicable disease (NCD) cases, the proliferation of online pharmacy services, and other contributing factors. Telemedicine platforms have revolutionized healthcare delivery, providing convenient access to medical consultations and prescriptions from the comfort of one's home. This evolution aligns with consumers' changing preferences for convenience, safety, and accessibility.

Pharmacies that leverage these trends by collaborating with telemedicine providers to offer seamless home delivery services for medications and health products stand to gain significantly. By integrating digital platforms, optimizing logistics, and ensuring high-quality service, pharmacies can enhance customer experiences and expand their market share, further states the research report, “Thailand Pharmacy Retail Market Analysis, 2024.”

Based on the product categories segment, the market is further bifurcated into, Medical Equipment, Non-Pharmaceutical Products, Prescribed Drugs, Medical Devices, Baby Care Products, Personal Care and Hygiene Products, and Others (First Aid Supplies, Orthopedic Support, etc.).
