The Asia-Pacific drugs, health and beauty retail channel is highly fragmented and, in many countries, dominated by small independent family stores. Japan is a notable exception to this and the countrys drugs, health and beauty retail channel is moderately concentrated. Consequently, the Asia-Pacific drugs, health and beauty retail channel is dominated by Japanese retail chains such as Matsumotokiyoshi, SUGI Holdings and TSURUHA.

Overall, SUNDRUG recorded the strongest performance among the leading drug, health and beauty retailers in the Asia-Pacific region. The performance was driven by the high scores it received under the operational efficiency pillar. The companys performance was followed by TSURUHA, which also scored highly in terms of the operational efficiency. The third-strongest performance was registered by SUGI Holdings, who also scored well in terms of metrics relating to operational efficiency. China Nepstar recorded the weakest overall performance, with a score below the drug, health and beauty retailers channel average, due to its poor performance across all pillars. Overall, six of the seven peer group companies performance was comparable to, or weaker than, the channel average.

Under the scale and growth pillar TSURUHA recorded the strongest performance in the peer group. The firms performance was driven by the high scores the company received for growth metrics such as revenue, store count and employee count growth, and its comparative advantage in terms of floor area expansion. Under the scale and growth pillar the performance of peer group companies was stronger than the channel average in terms of both revenue and store count growth. However, their performance was comparatively weaker in terms of metrics such as revenue, retail floor space, floor area expansion, store and employee count growth and market capitalization.
