At the intersection of the healthcare and consumer goods sectors, Consumer Healthcare (CHC) is a dynamic industry attracting both global players and specialized, midsized companies. The industry enjoys growing revenues and healthy margins, but significant changes are currently impacting channel landscape, digitalization, price transparency, customer consolidation, international account management, and other areas.
