External Analysis
Industry Analysis of Major Competitors
Retail Pharmacy Industrial Trends
Opportunities
• In 2010, 95 million citizens in the US will be over 50 years old, compared to 75 million in 2002.
• EPS is rising which makes Walgreens look like a good long term investment, this can raise equity using
stocks.
• Physician shortage is expected to increase from 13,700 physicians in 2010 to 130,600 in 2025 across all
specialties
• The Baby Boomer population which is the largest market segment in the U.S. holds 2/3rds of the nation’s
income.
• Prescription drug use is at 12.5 prescriptions a year at age 60, increases to 20 at 70 years old, under 5 at 44
and under.
• Growing trend of in-store health clinics could cause an increase in Walgreens already existing 700 take care
clinics.
• 442,333 companies comprised the US drugstore industry, 50 of the largest companies generate
approximately 70% of revenue.
Threats
• The future of cheaper pills and the recession will cut spending for the average customer.
• Transformation of the Health Care system will provide challenges for not just the customers but
the pharmaceutical companies
• Every other pharmaceutical competitor can adapt the same changes that Walgreens does to keep
up with them.
• US Customs estimate that 10 million US citizens bring in medications land boarders each year.
• High unemployment rates of approximately 9.5 % in 2011, which leads to job insecurity among
the working population.
• The potential of another stock market crash similar to August 4, 2011 which caused stock prices
to crash over 512 points, this creates insecurity among investors.

money
•
•
•
•
•
Walgreens does not own all its property (5 million sq. ft), lease 40% of stores.
Crowded parking lots make it tough for customers to have easy in and out access.
Failure to promote brands for baby-boomers and younger generations
Competitors like Walmart are beginning to operate 24 hour pharmacies.
Large discounters like Wal-Mart have drastic affect on Walgreens if they offer prescription
medications at lower prices
