Cameroon’s road networks, both paved and unpaved, are poorly maintained and unsafe. During the rainy season, many roads are barely passable.
Demand for first aid kits suffers from a lack of knowledge, with the majority of Cameroonians preferring to visit the emergency room should they require first aid. First aid kits are considered a luxury and not a necessity in Cameroon.
International players will continue to dominate wound care in Cameroon in 2021, whilst domestic presence remains negligible. Johnson & Johnson Inc remains the overall leader in value terms, with its sticking plaster/adhesive bandages Band-Aid, and its gauze offering Sterilux.
After performing well in response to the outbreak of COVID-19, growth is expected to continue increasing over the first half of the forecast period. It is expected that the increasing presence of chemists/pharmacies outlets in modern shopping centres in Douala and Yaoundé will help to improve the visibility of wound care over the forecast period, thus promoting further sales.
Over the forecast period, sticking plasters, gauze and bandages will continue to dominate current value sales. This will be due to their affordability and the prevalence of acute, chronic, and surgical wounds which has increased significantly.
Compared to Europe and America, Cameroon is an untapped market when it comes to wound care and therefore has a huge growth potential. Likewise, the absence of any competition from local sectors makes it ideal for investments from international players.
