Global demographic changes are creating a new market for consumer-focused products with significant health benefits. This new "consumer healthcare" segment is emerging midway between mass retail-based consumer goods and pharmacy-based pharmaceuticalsâ€”and it will be a new battleground between the giants in these two industries. Which industry will win? It's not yet clear. Consumer goods companies boast strengths in marketing and distribution but are weak on science, an area in which pharmaceutical companies excel. The unique challenges of this new segment will likely require a mixed model, with capabilities from each industry.Michael WisePartner, Vice PresidentA.T. Kearney
