DALLAS, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
ReportsnReports adds new market research report 'Forecast Revisit 2011-2012: Consumer Health' to its store. The global consumer health market experienced several changes in 2011. In conjunction with its new 2012 forecast release, this report provides additional insight on the regulatory, scientific, economic, industry and public health trends behind the data.
Several countries still restrict consumer health sales to pharmacies and drugstores, but alternative channels, particularly internet retailing and direct selling, gained ground worldwide in 2011. Many traditional retailers responded by integrating technology and novel purchasing methods into their business plans. A major example was Walgreen Co's acquisition of drugstore.com, a move intended to bolster internet presence against CVS Caremark Inc's more robust online offerings. GNC exploited the growing appeal of mobile platforms by facilitating easier purchases on its mobile app with PayPal Mobile Express Checkout.

Pharmacies, drugstores and supermarkets also tested the growing retail clinic trend. In North America and Western Europe, retail clinics served to moderate burdensome medical costs and also provide convenience and innovative services, such as nutritional counseling and smoking cessation programmes. In developing countries, such as India and Kenya, retail clinics delivered healthcare to patients who would have difficulty accessing it otherwise, and offered substantial discounts on both OTC and prescription drugs.
According to this consumer health market report, Internet Retailing leads the fast growing retail channels in 2011 followed by Direct Selling, ParaPharmacies/Drugstores and Variety stores. Similarly, Chemists/Pharmacies lead the consumer health retail channels in 2011 followed by ParaPharmacies/Drugstores, Direct selling, Supermarkets and others.
