Retail sales at drug stores grew by 3.6% in 2011, reaching $230 billion, and are expected to increase by a further 5% in 2012. Growth is driven by the aging population, rising levels of obesity and obesity-related illnesses and conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. As these groups seek treatment for their conditions, they turn to drug stores for health-related needs. Additionally, rising costs of health care are causing many to limit or avoid visits to their doctors, rather preferring self-diagnosis or assistance from a pharmacist or in-store clinic when seeking medical advice and treatment. Though competition exists from other channels, Walgreens and CVS remain the leaders among drug stores visited in general, as well as the top two destinations for prescription refills. Online retailing is slower to take off in this space, but it is expected to grow as consumers continue to adopt mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. This report closely examines these themes as well as a variety of other factors impacting the drug store shopper.
