"For the overall purpose, the key lies in the" modern "two characters.

According to CMH data, the total sales volume of online drugstores reached 11 billion yuan in 2015, an increase of 52.8% over 2014. Among them, the scale of drugs amounted to 3 billion yuan, accounting for 27.3% of online pharmacy operations, an increase of 57.9% over 2014. It is estimated that the total scale of online pharmacies will reach 16 billion yuan in 2016, an increase of 45.5% compared with the same period last year, and the growth of single drug products to 4 billion yuan.
Although in July 2016, the State Administration of food and drug administration called on the Internet third party platform online drugstore retail pilot work, but it did not have much impact on the online pharmacies that have already got B certificate and C certificate enterprise qualification. The standard market will bring greater dividends to the regular pharmaceutical business, create a new "blue sea" "." It is reported that at present, although the third party platform can not directly carry out drug trading, but can be used for drug store online drug display, users will click on the purchase will also directly jump to the pharmacy website to achieve transactions. In the future, the Internet technology and modern logistics will be an important way for the pharmaceutical circulation enterprises to improve their competitiveness, according to the industry expert Yin and Xiao.
Under the promotion of various policies, many pharmaceutical retail chain enterprises have built their own Internet docking platform.

In order to match the O2O layout of Jiuzhou Tong Group, a good pharmacist pharmacist announced that it plans to add 30 stores in Beijing's five rings this year to achieve "24 hours of drug delivery, 1 hours must reach" in the city's core area.
Industry experts say, with a series of policies such as "planning" landing, "13th Five-Year", large drug circulation enterprises will accelerate integration and expansion through mergers and acquisitions, listing and financing, issuing bonds and other ways. A batch of pharmaceutical companies such as benevolence and medicine are expected to continue to feed "Internet + medicine" in a group of early medical O2O business. "Industry cake, which means that the pharmaceutical circulation enterprises that conform to the trend of industrial development are expected to gain more growth than industry growth, and those who stick to the traditional industry will be eliminated.
