Future directions for consumer healthcare

Future directions for consumer healthcare


13 September 2019 - Deborah Wilkes

Read all about future directions for consumer healthcare in Edition 19 of the OTCToolbox Innovations magazine NEW IDEAS BETTER WAYS.

Feature articles in Edition 19 cover a range of topics including 3D printing, microbiome research, nanotechnology, personalised vitamins, sustainable packaging, virtual reality and wearables.

According to a new report from RB and The Future Laboratory, 3D printing, microbiome research, nanotechnology and wearables are just some of the technological advances that are set to transform consumer healthcare in the coming decades. The report says companies will need to adapt to this changing world by getting involved in more partnerships.

Personalised vitamins, minerals and supplements (VMS) hit the headlines several times in recent weeks, with Nestlé Health Science announcing the acquisition of Persona, Nature’s Way investing in Baze, and Vitamin Shoppe launching personalised subscriptions under the Only Me banner.

Meanwhile, Beiersdorf is highlighting its commitment to sustainable packaging. The German company has set itself “ambitious” targets and is involved in a number of initiatives to reuse packaging.

In addition, a recent survey commissioned by Germany’s Stada Arzneimittel – involving 18,000 people in nine European countries – reveals that Europeans have mixed views on new health technology.
