New Market Report: Analgesics in Portugal

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun May 10 2015

A recent study pointed out that 30% of Portugalís adult population suffers from chronic pain. Not surprisingly, analgesics remained one of the most used and most prevalent of all OTC products in Portugal, accounting for 24% of overall retail value sales of OTC products in 2014.

Competitive Landscape

Novartis Farma - Produtos FarmacÍuticos maintained its leading position in analgesics with a 14% value share in 2014, thanks to its key brand Voltaren, as well as a range of smaller brands, such as Parsel. The Voltaren brand, which posted a slight increase in value share in 2014, is well-established amongst consumers and widely distributed in parapharmacies/drugstores across the country. Moreover, the company introduced a more convenient and comfortable format of Voltaren in April 2014, namely a medicated diclofenac plaster to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

Industry Prospects

Analgesics is expected to maintain a positive performance over the forecast period 2014-2019. Increasingly hectic lifestyles and the rapidly ageing population in Portugal will ensure high levels of self-medication over the forecast period. By 2019, for instance, the retired population in Portugal is set to surge by 5%, with those older than 65 years old predicted to account for nearly one in every four residents.
