Pharmaceutics for a long time has evoked interest with its innovations and because of this it belongs to the best developing branches. Designing medicines according to the newest research results and their regular production and distribution have repeatedly done a service to medical industry. When it comes to size, the pharmaceutical market is one of the best and fastest developing in the World. The demand for medicines is constantly increasing and gives hope for healthy lives to many millions of people. However, the first quarter of 2016 was not too optimistic for the pharmaceutical market as far as finances are concerned. In comparison to the previous year, the dynamics of medicine production was decreased and around 9 million PLN found the way to the pharmaceutical budget.
Internet pharmacies are enjoying the largest interest and they are the leaders in work dynamics and received revenues. It is estimated that the first quarter of 2015, due to a highly infectious season, was a much better period for the pharmaceutical market than the beginning of the year 2016. The decrease was caused by the market situation, but also reduction in prices of retail products and medicines available without prescription. Lower prices contributed to the decrease of sales results in 2016, therefore for many pharmaceutical enterprises this is not the reason to be proud. For e-pharmacies on the other hand, this period was especially favorable, as the revenues from selling medicines amounted to around 77 million PLN.
