3/14/2019 Ranking of Russian Pharmaceutical Distributors (2018)

Despite the relatively modest results of the Russian pharmaceutical market in 2018, most large and medium-sized Russian wholesalers did not have anything to complain about. A number of distributors showed significant development dynamics. The so-called “second echelon” companies showed nearly exceptional results, with several companies having double-digit dispatch growth rates.

3/12/2019 Ranking of Russian Pharmacy Chains (2018)

In 2018, the Russian pharmaceutical retail saw one of the worst results of all time. The market volume was stagnating, while the dynamics in monetary terms could not rise higher than +2.2%. The dynamics in physical terms were negative, -3.2%. When even Rosstat could not register the incomes of the population growing, it is impossible to expect high purchasing activity. While the Rx drug dynamics were more or less stable, the decreasing dynamics of OTC drugs, dietary supplements, and certain categories of parapharmaceuticals significantly affected the profitability of pharmacies. The dynamics were declining not so much due to low sales of specific non-medicinal products, but rather due to these products being transferred into the so-called big retail, which offers the same products at more attractive prices.
