Basic plasters and other bandages will continue to compose the majority of sales in wound care in 2020. The success of more innovative products will be hampered by high unit prices, which can prove an obstacle for customers.
The domestic company Sarbontex will continue to lead retail value sales in 2020 as the company still benefits form its position as a local company and the low prices that it can offer to customers. The company is set to continue to prosper as their low prices suit the demands of the Uzbek customer base.
In general, wound care in Uzbekistan will remain dominated by local manufacturers. There is a relatively large number of local companies in the field which will ensure a constant supply of decent quality basic products in Uzbekistan, which is sufficient to satisfy the local demand.
The number of chemist/pharmacies in Tashkent and other regions is expected to continue to increase significantly, which will help to maintain growth throughout the forecast period as the continued availability of wound care products is ensured. Availability will further be helped by the government’s 2017 ruling which established a list of mandatory products that must be offered in every chemist/pharmacy, which include medical cotton wool (sterile or non-sterile), bandages (sterile or non-sterile) and medical gauze.
Wound care in general lacks the potential for significant growth in the forecast period due to the relatively stable and low demand for products in this category. This is because outside activities and sports are still relatively unpopular in Uzbekistan as a whole, especially when compared with other countries in the Commonwealth of Independent States such as Russia.
Very little change to the landscape of wound care is anticipated for the forecast period as domestic companies will continue to lead the field. With the government set to continue to strengthen the positions of local manufacturing in the pharma industry, it is expected that local manufacturers will expand the diversity of their products.
