North America ePharmacy Market Size (2024 to 2029)

As per our analysis report, the North American ePharmacy Market is expected to reach USD 48.05 billion by 2029 from USD 22.71 billion in 2024, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.17 % during the forecast period.

The Pandemic had issued lockdown regulations, which increased the scope for online pharmacies across the region. To avoid the risk of disease spreading, people preferred ePharmacy services, which increased the demand for market growth. The growing busy lifestyles of the people allow convenience in buying medicine through digital platforms, boosting the ePharmacy market value in the North American region. The increasing digitalization and rising benefits of affordability and accessibility in ePharmacy over traditional pharmacies are expected to propel market growth over the coming years. The Pandemic has impacted chronic patients by creating disruptions in the supply of medications. The closure of pharmacies reduced the medication supply as the government and healthcare system gave importance to only emergency cases. Online pharmacies act as saviors for patients in urgencies, and that demand is rising due to high adoption among people.

The rising digital transformation has increased the number of online doctor consultants where people contact doctors online. This results in the E-prescription process, where the growing e-prescriptions are expected to augment the market growth of e-pharmacy in North America. Home delivery services and accessibility to diverse varieties are gaining a customer base, positively impacting ePharmacy market growth.

The easy availability of some narcotics, stimulants, and painkillers is leading to substance abuse, which is hampering the ePharmacy market expansion. Many websites are misusing these digital platforms to sell certain drugs illegally without prescription to make money.
