The global retail drug industry has grown steadily over the last five years and is
expected to reach approximately US $1,420 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 3.6% over the
next five years. Direct mail advertising, television and print media advertising,
telemarketing, Internet advertising and social media, as well as bundled product and
service strategies, are expected to drive industry growth.

The retail drug industry is highly diversified and includes pharmacies and drug
stores, cosmetics, beauty supplies, and perfume stores, optical goods stores, other
health, and personal care stores. In this study, Lucintel thoroughly profiles the
following five companies with detailed competitive assessments:

– CVS Caremark
- Rite Aid
- Target Corp.

Lucintel’s research indicates that the Asia Pacific (APAC) region depicts the best
growth prospects for retailers with its increasing aging population, greater health
consciousness, and consumer demand. The macroeconomic factors such as rising population
and increasing disposable income of consumers are anticipated to impact market dynamics
significantly. Strategic product alliances directly with industry-leading manufacturers
also can help raise sales in this industry.

This study is intended to provide industry leaders with a competitive benchmarking of
the world’s top five global retail drug companies
