Nappy (diaper) rash treatments recorded strong current value growth in dermatologicals in 2019. This was associated with the high birth rate, as well as rising consumer purchasing power, which significantly influenced sales of disposable nappies/diapers.
The recent devaluation of the local currency against the US dollar made it expensive for consumers to buy imported products, and most dermatologicals are imported. This, along with government support for local companies, should have created more incentive and opportunities to local producers to manufacture domestic consumer health products in the country.
Skin fungal infections are amongst the most frequent dermatological complaints suffered by consumers in Uzbekistan, and seem to be occurring with greater frequency. The warm, clammy summer weather provides the perfect conditions for fungal infections such as athlete’s foot.
GSK Consumer Healthcare and Johnson & Johnson ranked first and second in dermatologicals respectively in value terms in 2019. GSK Consumer Healthcare’s wide portfolio of brands benefits from a strong and wide distribution network, with the company’s Lamisil brand remaining the leading brand in topical antifungals in 2019, and other strong brands including Zovirax in cold sore treatments and Fenistil in topical allergy remedies/antihistamines.
The Uzbekistani company Radiks ranked third in dermatologicals in value terms in 2019, as the company supplies consumers with boric ointment and spiritus salicylowy, which are widely available in chemists/pharmacies and have accessible prices. In general, local consumers do not look for specific brands when they buy dermatologicals.
French company Servier (via Egis Slovakia) and Canadian company Bausch Health Cos were the only two major players present in vaginal antifungals in 2019, with Servier’s Betadine brand leading by far. Despite its outright lead, sales of Betadine continued to grow in 2019, outpacing Gynalgin by Bausch Health Cos, which saw a sales decline.
