Executive Summary

Oct 2019
Consumer health sales continue to grow strongly in 2019

Consumer health sales continued to post positive results over 2019. The industry is one of the most resilient ones under Euromonitor´s coverage in Brazil.

Positive performance despite the lack of innovation

Although sales of consumer health items remained in positive territory, the growth pace has been diminishing recently. Many of the items covered under the consumer health industry are perceived as essential to many consumers.

Leading companies reinforce their position, but competition affects the competitive landscape

Sanofi-Aventis Farmacêutica remained the leading company in consumer health in Brazil in 2019, thanks primarily to a strong portfolio of brands. Sanofi’s Dorflex continued to strengthen its position under systemic analgesics.

Parapharmacies/Drugstores continues to dominate sales, but internet retailing grows stronger

Parapharmacies/Drugstores remains the most important channel under the consumer health industry. It continues to gain relevance as most Brazilians are not used to purchase products in advance.

Future growth to remain positive

Consumer health in Brazil is expected to remain on a positive growth trajectory over the forecast period. Sales are expected to continue to be driven mainly by volume increases rather than price adjustments.
