Consumer concern for holistic health has augmented the demand for preventive healthcare. Frost & Sullivan’s dedicated Global Personal Well Being (PWB) Program makes informed strategic and tactical decisions based on robust and accurate insight. Our research services understand the dynamically changing consumer trends in cosmetics and packaging sectors. The value at stake in understanding these long term perspectives is significant. The output of the platform is a series of specific market studies, insightful presentations, and interactive workshops.

Globalization has influenced significant lifestyle changes in the developing nations of the world. It has also led to the rise of a high income group which thereby leads to changing patterns of food consumption. Our research services helps to understand the technology adoption in light-weight materials, thereby creating new avenues for medical care. An average drug loses up to 36.0% of sales due to non-medical adherence. We at Frost & Sullivan analyse the disease state, unique characteristics of the market, and geographic trends to develop insights on developing smart and functional packaging.
