Market Drivers

Pharmaceutical businesses should have profitable prospects if marijuana use for medical purposes becomes more widely accepted, which could boost the market throughout the projection period.

It is predicted that rising benefits awareness would increase demand, opening up a variety of chances to grow the cannabis market.

Market Restraints

Due to marijuana's adverse effects, which could hinder the medical marijuana market during the evaluation period, numerous nations have implemented rigorous restrictions and regulations regulating its use. Additionally, it is anticipated that using marijuana recreationally will harm people's health, which could hinder the cannabis industry throughout the assessment phase.

Medical Marijuana Market COVID 19 Analysis

The number of patients and prescriptions for medical marijuana greatly surged in the US and Europe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The medical marijuana market is expanding due to an increase in the prevalence of diseases and the recognition of medical marijuana as an alternative therapy to its conventional counterparts. Several states in the United States, Europe, and Canada saw an increase in the use of medical cannabis as a result of COVID-19, which had a relatively beneficial effect on the industry. Customers who bought from the offline or retail market decreased due to the lockdown, but many important participants in the cannabis industry redirected their attention to selling and marketing goods on social media and e-commerce sites.

Due to the implementation of the lockdown in several nations, the COVID-19 epidemic is anticipated to slow down the marijuana industry over the projection period. The COVID-19 period has seen a boom in the medical sector. However, the rising emphasis on developing the vaccine is likely to impede the growth of the medicinal marijuana business. Some key elements anticipated to fuel the growth of medical marijuana over the next few years include the rising number of states that have legalized it and the rising demand for cannabis for both medical and recreational purposes.
