About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Digestive remedies continued to record more growth in in 2012 with an increase of 8%. This is increasingly due to lifestyle habits and prevailing poor hygiene and water conditions, especially in rural and overcrowded urban areas. Unregulated food products prepared under doubtful sanitary conditions also contribute to the proliferation of digestive problems. Consumers who had increasingly turned to homemade remedies for such ailments had to turn to standard medication, especially first aid diarrhoeal remedies, as home/traditional remedies proved less effective. Consumers are increasingly sceptical of using home/traditional remedies for digestive issues, which tend to offer less rapid relief.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Sanofi-Aventis continued to be successful in 2012 with its flagship and popular brand Flagyl, which is commonly sold in all pharmacies and known everywhere. Flagyl is a highly appreciated and recommended diarrhoeal remedy among consumers, pharmacists and even healthcare workers. It is also the most demanded digestive remedy due to its effectiveness and affordable pricing. In some drugstores it is even retailed in smaller quantities.

PROSPECTS

  • Forecast period constant value CAGR of 5% will represent an improvement on the corresponding review period performance of 4% This will be thanks to increased awareness among consumers regarding sanitary issues. Government alerts on cholera outbreaks are helping to drive sales, especially of diarrhoeal remedies. Prices are forecast to drop as cheaper generics increasingly penetrate the market.
