Covered in this report

Target the North and West

North and West India were leading in terms of OTC usage –72% and 71% respectively. These can be achieved by running awareness programmes on safe self medication. Increasing awareness through media like TV, social media and print media will help in growth. Advertising in supermarkets and hypermarkets help in reaching wider audiences.

Target the elderly and working women

Target the elderly (55+) as 68% are current users. Herbal oils and external OTC pain-relieving medicated rub are the formats which can be used to target them. 72% of working women used pain management solutions. Hence tying up with doctors would help in reaching the working women as 25% buy based on doctor's recommendation.

A focus on service and education is needed

The rural market has strong potential which is still untapped. Increasing the penetration of chemists is crucial. Tying up with start-ups like Udaan and Storeking and appointing village-level entrepreneurs will help in tapping rural India. The online channel can be optimized by offers: from discounts, cashback and subscriptions.
