Recent Study: Analgesics in the Netherlands

New Healthcare research report from Euromonitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- In January 2013, the Medicines Evaluation Board fixed the maximum pack size of acetaminophen 500mg to 50 units in chemists/pharmacies and no more than 20 units in other retail channels. This decision came as studies showed that acetaminophen intake had been involved in several suicide cases. The MEB also recommends that pharmacists and other retailers better inform consumers about the risks and offer free help and advice. This decision could help raise awareness about a drug that is often considered as harmless by the general public. However, several organisations such as the CBD (Central Board of Pharmacists) voiced their concern about this policy which does little to limit consumption as consumers can easily buy from different retail channels.

Competitive Landscape

Bayer Consumer Care BV maintained its leading position in analgesics with a 22% value share in 2013 thanks to its key brands Finimal and Aleve, as well as a range of smaller brands. Both Finimal and Aleve are well established among consumers and widely distributed in retail. Aleve posted a slight increase in value share in 2013, while Finimal's share stagnated due to its higher unit price.

Industry Prospects

Analgesics will record a slight decline in value, with sales set to fall by 2% over the forecast period as a whole at constant 2013 prices. Demand will remain relatively steady in volume terms and there is expected to be little opportunity to add more value to the category. Population growth will keep a low pace, while the median age of the population will rise. This will have an impact on paediatric analgesics, which is set to see value sales rise at a 1% CAGR at constant 2013 prices over the forecast period, reflecting a marginal slowdown compared to the review period. However, there will be some room for growth in the category as the level of penetration is lower than adult analgesics.
