In fact, according to data from, Greece has the largest number of pharmacists, per inhabitant, in all of Europe and ranks seventh with respect to the number of pharmacies. Therefore, it is not surprising to see that revenues of pharmacies are projected to rise from 4.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2015 to over 5.4 billion U.S. dollars by 2023. Some of the key drivers for the growth include a rising elderly population coupled with the associate disease burden, cost-effective prices owing to a low VAT rate and the growing popularity of OTC drugs.
