E-pharmacy, also known as an online pharmacy, internet pharmacy, or mail-order pharmacy, is an online service that is available via the use of the internet and serves customers by sending them online prescriptions to allow patients to get access to online medicines. It operates online and delivers products to the customers through various shipping channels. It delivers all types of pharmaceutical drugs, such as over the counter (OTC) drugs and prescription drugs.

Increasing penetration of internet worldwide, growing investments made by private companies, and the rising number of steps taken by government bodies are some major factors propelling the global e-pharmacy market development. Moreover, the rising burden of diseases and escalating adoption IT in the healthcare sector are anticipated to further propel the growth of the e-pharmacy market. However, increasing practice of illegal online pharmacy, strict regulatory policies imposed by governments of various countries for improved quality of drugs and the increasing use of e-prescriptions and prescription drugs may hamper the e-pharmacy market growth globally over the forecast time period.

Global E-Pharmacy Market

The global e-pharmacy market is segmented on the basis of drug type and by region. Based on drug type, the e-pharmacy market is fragmented into over the counter (OTC) drugs and prescription drugs.
