Although the value of the OTC market (medicines and supplements, pharmacy and non-pharmacy sales) remained unchanged in 2012 compared to the situation last year, some crucial changes took place in the sales structure. Due to the higher dynamic of the dietary supplement segment, their growth in the OTC market in 2012 increased by 0.6 p.p.The non-pharmacy sales depend greatly on the existing legislation. The most recent list of substances admitted to trading outside pharmacies was published in October 2010, and it limited the list of such products compared to the previous one. No changes have been introduced since, and generating positive growth rates on the same product group is no longer possible.
 
Although it was expected that the main beneficiary of the reimbursement act would be the OTC product sector, the new legal regulations have had a significant impact also on the sales of OTC medicines and dietary supplements, particularly in pharmacies. Both the pharmacy and non-pharmacy markets of OTC medicines and dietary supplements therefore observed a zero growth rate in 2012, and reached the value of PLN 8.93bn, almost the same as a year earlier. It turns out that many consumers stocked up also on OTC products at the end of 2011, due to the panic related to the possible price increase expected after the entry of the reimbursement act. As a result, in 2012 – at the beginning of the year in particular – consumers purchased such products to a limited extent. Secondly, the consumers also limited their spending on OTC products that were not basic, as they had to spend more on reimbursed Rx medicines, frequently necessary to save life and limb.
