Extract from this report
- In Russia, in 2013, the OTC drugs market grew by 11% in retail prices and by 12% in wholesale prices (in roubles). OTC drug sales for 2013 as a whole was positively affected by epidemiological trends. The growth of the dietary supplement market in the country continued in 2013.
- In Ukraine, several factors will be crucial for OTC drugs market value between 2014 and 2019. In 2014 the political crisis in Ukraine, which may lead to a recession and other problems, such as higher gas prices and the devaluation of the hryvnia, is an obvious example. The dietary supplement market in Ukraine has been enjoying healthy growth rates in recent years. In 2014, despite the political crisis in Ukraine, the market will also increase considerably in the local currency.
- Our forecasts for Kazakhstan suggest that the OTC drug market in the country will grow over the next few years and that it will grow at a double-figure rate. In 2014-2019 we expect some acceleration of the rates of growth of macroeconomic factors (of GDP and private consumption, in comparison with figures from 2014; they will be at their highest in 2015).
