Largest OTC Market Segment on the Verge of Big Change
New York, October 17, 2001 /PR Newswire —Big changes could be in store for the over-the-counter (OTC) allergy and asthma product market in the near future, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information and available through MarketResearch.com. Allergy and Asthma products the largest OTC segment in the United States with sales surpassing $1.7 billion last year, could be getting some company on the already crowded drugstore shelves.
The new study, The U.S. Market for Over-the-Counter Allergy and Asthma Products, identifies at least ten likely candidates for Rx-to-OTC switches in this area in the next few years. The most important category—non-sedating antihistamines such as Claritin, Allegra, and Zyrtec—will most likely be available OTC by 2003, according to the study. These allergy medications could grab upwards of 25% of the total market almost immediately after their introduction.
Although the study found modest growth to be the norm in most of the areas covered, remedies for ocular allergies posted respectable growth (near 10%) recently, and the potential OTC candidates likely to hit the market by 2003 are forecast to post healthy growth rates (over 12%) in the subsequent years.
“Modeling OTC markets is notoriously difficult,” notes Steven Heffner, Acquisitions Editor at Kalorama. “There are many more unpredictable variables to take into account than in prescription markets: consumer behavior and brand loyalty, fierce pricing competition especially in the robust generic area, and uncertain reimbursement policies from pharmacy benefits companies. Our analysts looked at consumer and regulatory trends and compiled excellent market information from both the retail unit sales side to the manufacturers’ dollar volume to analyze this complex market.”
