Argentina 2019 Supplement/OTC/Rx

Introduction Overview

Since 2005, NMI’s Global Dietary Supplements/OTC/Rx Consumer Studies are devoted to understanding consumer attitudes and behaviors and their impact on market dynamics!

Natural Marketing Institute (NMI) is pleased to present its Argentina 2019 Supplements/OTC/Rx Report. This comprehensive report analyzes the dietary supplement market from the consumer perspective with 90+ pages of consumer attitudes, behaviors and product usage patterns surrounding dietary supplements, over-the-counter medication and pharmaceuticals.

This research uncovers how consumers integrate this mix of self-care methods into their current lifestyle and reveals the motivations and the challenges they encounter in their pursuit of health. Many factors are driving multiple categories across Argentina. For example, aging drives condition-specific needs, and increased consumer knowledge and desire for specific product features and benefits drive sustainable, organic, and plant-based options. The need for education and an understanding of the drivers that affect consumer behavior patterns has never been stronger.

The overall objectives of the report are to develop unique and specific consumer insight to maximize client learnings and opportunities in terms of attracting new consumers, increasing compliance and developing compelling messaging and communications strategies.

Some of the topics covered in the report:

Top “White Space” Opportunity areas

The size and demographic composition of Consumer groups

Health and Wellness composition of various supplement user groups

‘Likely User’ groups to buy supplements –Condition management
