E-pharmacy refers to an online platform that allows vendors to sell medicines and send orders to consumers through shipping companies. It offers medical care providers the ability to prescribe and deliver medications for patients, provide value-added information to consumers, such as drug interactions, side effects online. E-Pharmacy is gaining higher importance because of the benefits it offers to the consumers to simply upload the prescription and get the drugs at door delivered and easy availability of medicines at discounted prices without even visiting the pharmacy stores. The growing use of smartphones and the internet along with the rapid development of technology and infrastructure healthcare facilities, rise in the aging population and a large customer base in both developed and developing countries are the factors driving the E-Pharmacy market globally.

Asia-Pacific is the second highest region in leading the demand of the market, and is expected to reach the highest market share in the near future due to the increasing number of patients and growing population. Though earlier people opted for e-pharmacy mainly for cosmetics and over-the-counter drugs, in the current impact of Covid-19 and lockdown, patients are guided to avoid the unnecessary public contact and hospital visit for minor disease conditions. The rising incidences of chronic diseases and increasing awareness over the online pharmacies offer lucrative opportunities for the key players in the E-Pharmacy market. However, stringent government regulations for the sale of prescription drugs, rise in fraud activities, and security and privacy concerns among people are challenging the market to a slight extent. The key players in the market are focusing on developing new apps and expanding their businesses across various regions globally. In March 2019, 1mg, an Indian Online Pharmacy received Legitiscript certificate from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, which will further increase its customer base. In January 2019, Meds, a Swedish online pharmacy company planned to expand its business across Europe. In November 2016, Netmeds Marketplace acquired the Hyperlocal drugs delivery app, where it delivered an application named Pluss for an undisclosed amount.
