Consumer healthcare deals with products in wellness, oral health, nutrition, and skin health. Consumer healthcare products mainly constitute over-the-counter (OTC) drugs that include medicines, which are sold directly to a consumer without a prescription from a healthcare professional.
The major factors that contribute to the growth of the consumer healthcare market include high demand for self-medication, growing healthcare costs, increasing geriatric population who are more prone to contracting diseases, deterioration in mental health, and shift from medication prescription to OTC products. Moreover, the approval of wellness & preventive medicine and a rise in disposable income further boosts the market growth.
