Cough, Cold and Allergy (Hay Fever) Remedies in China - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Apr 17 2015

Value growth of cough, cold and allergy (hay fever) remedies (CCA) stabilised in 2014, at 8%, after a series of product safety issues since 2012. Firstly, ephedrine, one of the illegal drug making elements, was discovered in multinational CCA brands, such as New Contac and White & Black in 2012. Secondly, amantadine, hazardous to children’s livers and kidneys, was found in paediatric CCA products in late 2012, with domestic brands, such as Hu Tong from Harbin Pharmaceutical Group Co Ltd, affected. These incidents have led to the impaired confidence among consumers in their self-medication for colds and coughs.

Competitive Landscape

CR Sanjiu Medical & Pharmaceutical Co Ltd continued to lead with a value share of 10% in 2014. Its flagship brand, 999, consolidated its leadership in the category thanks to its age-specific product ranges targeting children and adults separately, as well as varied product formats, in granules and capsules, to meet various consumer needs. Its product efficacy has been strengthened via its herbal ingredient-based formula with added western active pharmaceutical ingredients. In addition, its effective marketing, via TV programme sponsorship, has managed to further enhance its brand awareness across the country.

Industry Prospects

CCA is expected to experience a steady value CAGR of 5% at constant 2014 prices in the forecast period, to be underpinned by the stable demand from the widely present self-medication for common colds and coughs among local consumers. With a quickened life pace, time-pressed modern consumers are more likely to treat the mild symptoms of coughs and colds by themselves, leading to steady demand over the forecast period.
