11/26/2019 Ranking of Russian Pharmacy Chains (Q1 – Q3 2019)

This year, the rather modest dynamics in monetary terms (rubles) demonstrated by the Russian pharmaceutical retail was in fact positive only due to price increases. The dynamics in physical terms, especially of over-the-counter drugs and parapharmaceuticals, continues to drop, which has become nearly common. In addition to stagnating household incomes, the non-pharmacy segment, which systematically steals consumers from conventional pharmacies, is also a significant problem. Online marketplaces are actively increasing in number as well, and foreign players are also trending. In particular, American iHerb announced their plans to open an office in Moscow, which is hardly good news for the Russian pharmaceutical retail.
