Analgesics: The Evolving Self-Care Market for Pain Relief

Analgesics: The Evolving Self-Care Market for Pain Relief

This report is an in-depth exploration of the Analgesics market, including Systemic analgesics, Topical analgesics and Mouth & dental analgesics, plus supplements positioned for pain relief, and includes coverage of 16 major markets from across the globe, with topline sales, brand performances, new developments, launches and A+P campaigns. With mid-year 2017 sales from the newly-updated DB6, it features major category sales segmented by ingredient in each country, case studies of key Analgesics brands, highlighting success factors, sales, NPD and A+P activity, plus forecasts sales for all categories and countries and predictions for the future outlook of this market.

With global sales of $17bn in the year to mid-2017, the combined categories of Systemic analgesics, Topical analgesics and Mouth & dental analgesics grew by 5.0% on the previous year, significantly outpacing the global over-the-counter market (+4.6%). Topicals continue to outpace systemics, driven by high levels of innovation and low levels of private label competition. Driving growth are higher-dose NSAIDs (despite some reverse-switches and restrictions on pack sizes), new ingredient combinatons and fast-acting products. A trend for smaller packs is intended to attract low-income or on-the-go consumers. Despite high growth, the analgesics market faces challenges. Global calls for restrictions on NSAIDs such as diclofenac, owing to risks of cardiovascular events, have led to pack size restrictions and reviews of classification. Other regulatory hurdles include tighter regulations on codeine (e.g. label warnings, smaller pack sizes, etc.), with the ingredient reverse switched in systemic analgesics in several countries such as Australia, Belgium, Russia and most recently France.
