Consumer Health in Morocco

Consumer Health in Morocco

Consumer health in Morocco benefitted from the pandemic, with stockpiling and panic buying driving a significant amount of value sales in 2020. In 2021, value growth is expected to be lower. The stockpiling trend has eased and consumers are still using up excess supplies and this is expected to dampen value growth somewhat. This is especially true in products such as analgesics, cough and cold remedies and paediatric consumer health.
