Consumption of systemic analgesics commonly used for pain relief has been declining in Slovakia since 2017. This is probably because Slovak consumers would rather apply a lotion, cream or gel before taking a pill so as not to burden the stomach and because of concerns about the broader effects of systemic products.
Despite analgesics being one of the most popular OTC categories amongst Slovak consumers, its growth is expected to be limited in the coming years. Given current headwinds with logistic and supply bottlenecks and pressures on the price of energy and other commodities and high rates of inflation, the uncertain situation is likely to last beyond 2022.
The maturity of the category and the long-term use of analgesics have made many Slovak consumers immune to the effect and hence they are always using stronger and stronger alternatives. The Slovak health care system is somewhat conservative.
