Most analgesics categories are expected to see volume sales return to positive territory in 2023 and then increase steadily over the remainder of the forecast period. In the short term, overall demand should pick up as stockpiles accumulated by Irish households during the first two years of the pandemic are exhausted.
Paediatric analgesics is projected to expand at a markedly faster pace than adult analgesics in volume terms over the forecast period. This is partly because sales in the former category are emerging from a lower base, though growth will also be bolstered by the fact that Irish parents today are more willing to give their children such products than previous generations due to increased health awareness and higher levels of confidence in their safety and efficacy.
Combination analgesics containing codeine are available without prescription in pharmacies in Ireland. While they must be kept out of sight behind the counter and their sale is contingent on a consultation with a pharmacist, under these regulations it is not possible to monitor if individuals are “codeine shopping”, ie visiting different pharmacies to make frequent purchases or buy multiple products in a short period of time.
