Expensive medical costs and an unreliable public healthcare sector will continue to drive a strong self-medication trend in South Africa over the forecast period. With the rise in COVID-19 cases towards the end of 2022, especially now that symptoms are less severe and are manageable at home, demand for analgesics is expected to remain stable.
Local consumers are increasingly product and brand aware and the easy access to information online has helped them to make educated decisions on what they require whilst expecting more from brands. As a result, South Africans are increasingly looking for products that are more targeted to treat specific symptoms that they are experiencing.
The rise of retail e-commerce and the expansion of retail outlets where analgesics are typically sold across South Africa will further support category growth. For example, Clicks and Dischem, which are two of the key pharmacy chains in the region, along with independent pharmacies, are expanding aggressively to be closer to consumers.
