Value sales of analgesics is expected to remain unchanged in 2021. While there was a huge surge in analgesics sales in 2020, as it was used to alleviate symptoms of COVID-19, now that fears around of the virus have abated somewhat, there is expected to be less demand for analgesics.
GSK Consumer Healthcare took the lead in analgesics in 2019 and has maintained its top place. Backed by global player GlaxoSmithKline Plc, GSK Consumer Healthcare holds the top two brands in analgesics in the Netherlands, namely Voltaren and Panadol.
Within systemic analgesics, both diclofenac and ibuprofen are under pressure and the long-term outlook is also bleak. There was a minor spike in sales of diclofenac during the first wave of COVID-19, as some consumers decided to stock up as they were unsure about availability.
Analgesics will register moderate constant value growth over the forecast period. However, the pandemic will have a lasting impact and could dampen value sales somewhat.
Topical analgesics are expected to register the highest value growth in 2021 and this will also drive value growth over the forecast period. A recent change in legislation allows topical analgesics manufacturers to increase the dose of diclofenac and had led to increased value sales and will continue to do so over the forecast period.
The long-term burden of healthcare in the Netherlands is worrying, with escalating costs on the horizon. There is a debate about what measures are appropriate to limit increased healthcare costs, which will be under increased pressure in the near future, due to an ageing population.
