In Q1–Q3 2022, the online sales or reservations of pharmacy products (pharmaceutical drugs and parapharmaceuticals) in Russia were 213.4 billion rubles (end-user prices, VAT included), which is much higher than the total in 2021. The sales and reservations went up 50.7% (against 51.3% in Q1–Q2 2022). The growth rate is significantly more different from those seen due to the rush demand earlier this year—in particular, the sales in Q1 2022 grew 69.6%.

11/11/2022 RNC Pharma: Market Shares of Seven Major Pharmaceutical Distributors Decline in Q1–Q3 2022

The number of factors influencing the Russian pharmaceutical market may have reached a historic high this year, which is why partial mobilization was hardly surprising. The way it affected the Russian economy is worth describing as vividly as possible. First, a significant part of consumers was lost, including not only the mobilized conscripts, but also those “tourists” who fled Russia to its neighboring states, with solvent consumers among them. Second, for a relatively short period of time, the pharmaceutical market saw a “militarization” of demand, which included the need to provide conscripts with drugs and medical devices used in warfare, as well as general panic moods stimulating the demand for certain drugs.
