Dublin, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Mail Order Pharmacy Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Drug Type; Product; Mode of Order, and Geography" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The market was valued at US$ 48,977 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 166,384.85 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.5% from 2020 to 2027. Based on drug type, the global mail order pharmacy market is segmented into prescription drugs and nonprescription drugs. The nonprescription drugs segment held a larger share of the market in 2019. This growth is ascribed to the increasing demand for over the counter (OTC) drugs such as cough and cold medications, analgesics, and gastrointestinal products. However, the prescription drugs segment is estimated to register a higher CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.In the North American region, the US is profoundly affected by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The country has marked the highest number of positive cases. Across the nation, various healthcare research centers are working on the COVID-19 therapeutics. Additionally, during the initial phase of COVID-19 crisis, due to lockdown and supply chain disruptions the demand for mail order pharmacy was significantly increased owing to change in customer behaviors for purchasing prescription drugs.The growth of the mail order pharmacy market is attributed to the increasing incidences of chronic diseases and increasing adoption of mail order pharmacy in healthcare sector. However, the less adoption in low- and- middle income economies due to less penetration of e-commerce hinder the growth of this market. Canada Drugs Online, WellDyne, Walgreens co., eDrugstore.com, Zur Rose Group AG., CHI Health, Optumrx Inc., Express Scripts Holding Company, CVS Health, and PillPack are among the leading companies operating in the global mail order pharmacy market.Key Topics Covered: 1.

As oil companies go out of business, they are leaving a legacy of abandoned wells that leak huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere A pumpjack operates above an oilwell in the Bakken Formation outside Williston, North Dakota. Photograph: Daniel Acker/Getty Images Jill Morrison has seen how the bust of oil and gas production can permanently scar a landscape. Near her land in north-east Wyoming’s Powder River Basin, where drilling started in 1889, more than 2,000 abandoned wells are seeping brine into the groundwater and leaking potent greenhouse gasses. The problem is getting worse. As the oil and gas industry contracts owing to the pandemic, low prices and the rise of renewables, more than 50 major companies have gone bankrupt in the last year. Joe Biden’s recent order to pause drilling on federal land could drive that number higher. Morrison, a rancher and the head of the Powder River Basin resource council, said the crash was exacerbating the abandonment issue. “They drill baby drilled themselves right out of business,” Morrison said. “We’re seeing something we’ve never seen before in the oil and gas industry, in terms of the downturn, and there’s going to be a billion-dollar mess to clean up.” Unplugged wells, either orphaned well, which have no liable party, usually due to bankruptcy, or idle, abandoned ones, where the company has walked away, but could still be liable, cause rampant methane emissions – up to 8% of US total according to a 2014 analysis. They also leak brine, oil and fracking fluid into the groundwater, and carcinogenic gases, like benzine, into the air, and as their numbers increase the impacts grow. “Methane is a strong greenhouse gas, it’s a precursor for ozone, and harmful for human health,” said Mary Kang, a McGill civil engineering professor who conducted the study. “Even just a few wells can be responsible for big emissions, and there are all the other associated risks, and impacts to wildlife and ecosystems.” The impacts aren’t just here in the rangy fields of Wyoming. There are unremediated wells in Los Angeles neighborhoods and Pennsylvania farms. There could be as many as 3.2m abandoned wells in the US, according to a 2018 EPA report, but this is probably an undercount because both federal and state programs for regulating and monitoring non-producing wells are incomplete. There are an estimated 2,500 of them in the Powder River Basin alone. So many have been left uncapped because the regulations and bonding requirements, the money that companies pay ahead of time as insurance, for those wells are so minimal that it’s nearly impossible to hold drillers responsible or to pay for cleanup. Some companies simply walk away from wells, meaning they are still liable; when firms go out of business, they are not. The penalties for not cleaning up a well are minimal when there’s nothing but a small bond holding a company responsible. “How do you convince operators to comply when there’s no carrot and no stick?” said Frank Rusco, a director in the US Government Accountability Office’s natural resources and environment team. That means the profits for drilling go to individual companies while the damages, both environmental and financial, are largely borne by the local community and by state and federal taxpayers. “Unplugged wells devalue property, they’re a mess to work around, it can lead to groundwater pollution, and no one is really tracking it,” Morrison said. The thinktank Carbon Tracker, reports it could cost $280bn to reclaim wells, and public bonding data indicates that states have less than 1% of that money in secure bonds. Cleanup for an individual well can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $1m. It involves filling it with clay or concrete, covering the surface, replacing topsoil, and removing any pipes or waste like fracking fluid. Wyoming is shaking the stick harder than other places. In 2014, slumping prices set off a wave of bankruptcies and places like the Powder River Basin were hit hard by abandonment. In response, the Wyoming oil and gas commission upped their bonding fees, but there is still a big gap in funding. Wyoming has 64,000 orphaned unplugged wells, which would cost an estimated $10bn to remediate, according to an October report from the Carbon Tracker Initiative. Even with the increased bonding requirements, as of the most recent tally the state had about $225m in bonds. The Center for American Progress recently published a plan for a $2bn orphan well cleanup fund, which would both address the pollution and support 14,000 to 24,000 jobs in energy-producing states like Wyoming. And in September, Senator Michael Bennett of Colorado introduced a bill that included those recommendations to create a federal cleanup fund, and increase minimum bonds. “I think this is a two-step solution, first would be creating a cleanup fund to address the giant backlog of orphan wells that are scattered across the nation,” said report author Kate Kelly, public lands director at the center. “Then, the heart of the problem is that we have inadequate bonding requirements in places that allow oil and gas companies to walk away and leave taxpayers holding the bag.”

European shares rose on Thursday, led by sectors expected to benefit from a broader economic recovery, as the U.S. Federal Reserve signalled it would maintain a loose monetary policy, while Standard Chartered fell as its profit slumped. U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell on Wednesday calmed fears that higher inflation would also lead to a tapering of monetary stimulus, saying the central bank would not change policy until the economy was clearly improving.

The dollar index fell to its lowest since early January on Thursday and dropped to three-year lows against the Australian and Canadian dollars, after dovish signals from the U.S. Federal Reserve boosted the reflation trade in currency markets. Easy financial conditions, the promise of fiscal stimulus and accelerating COVID-19 vaccine rollouts have driven money into what's known as the reflation trade, referring to bets on an upswing in economic activity and prices.
Companies are improving the way they report about their impact on the climate, Norway's $1.3 trillion sovereign wealth fund said on Thursday, having long called for fuller disclosures. Investing the state's revenues from oil and gas production and managed by a unit of Norway's central bank, the Government Pension Fund Global is one of the world's largest investors in equities, bonds and real estate. It holds stakes in around 9,100 companies worldwide and has set the pace on a host of issues in the field of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG).
Australia passed a world first media law on Thursday. .designed to force big tech to pay media companies for their content.The reforms are a check on companies like Facebook and Google that could be copied in other countries.The legislation has been watered down after a standoff between the government and Facebook over the past week, including Facebook's drastic move to block all news for Australian users.That decision set off a storm of criticism.Then the social media giant took a U turn and "refriended" Australia on Tuesday,after last minute concessions were made by the government...including a longer period for tech companies to strike a deal with media before the government intervenes.Treasurer Josh Frydenberg trumpeted the law's passage as a win for supporting independent journalism stating it was helping "to sustain public-interest journalism."Facebook have also claimed the media code's last-ditch changes as a victory.But not everyone is happy with the amendments.The changes let firms like Facebook and Google off the hook if they make so-called 'significant contribution' to Australian media.Some lawmakers and publishers have warned that could unfairly leave smaller media companies out in the cold. For example, a fixed payment from Facebook or Google doesn't lead to more money invested in journalism by major media firms.When it was announced - Google and Facebook fiercely opposed the law.Since then Google has since struck deals with several firms, including Rupert Murdoch's NewsCorp.And this week, Australia's national broadcaster ABC and other TV networks said they were in talks with Facebook.Other world leaders have followed the saga closely as countries like Canada and Britain consider similar steps that may loosen Big Tech's grip on news.
