"Sleep Aids in the Netherlands" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Dec 06 2015


Sleep aids recorded healthy positive value growth in 2015. Growth in the category was boosted mainly by rising levels of stress and insomnia among the Dutch population due to the increasingly hectic lifestyles of urban consumers. As these consumers are seeking remedies to relax themselves and fall asleep more quickly in times of stress, sales of sleep aids increased. Much of the stress of these consumers was caused by more challenging lifestyles, increasing levels of stress at home and financial problems, all fuelled by uncertain economic conditions.

Competitive Landscape

Vemedia BV remained the leading player in sleep aids in the Netherlands in 2015 with value shares of 49%. The company owns well-known brands within sleep aids such as Valdispert, Sleepzz and Melatomatine. Valdispert is a valerian root-based product which is suitable for both calming and sleeping purposes. Vemedia BV, meanwhile, has been focusing on the Sleepzz brand in recent years and it has introduced numerous new products within the range.

Industry Prospects

Sleep aids is expected to maintain healthy growth during forecast period, although growth in the category is expected to slow down as sales become more stable. Sales in the category are also set to be influenced by the impending ban on OTC melatonin products with a dosage over 0.3mg per tablet. Currently, products containing up to 2mg of melatonin are approved for OTC sale in the country. The switch is set to be introduced in order to prevent consumers taking excessively high dosages of melatonin to disturb their sleeping patterns. It is not yet certain exactly when the ban will be introduced, although it is most likely to negatively influence sales in the category as the ban is likely to mean an adverse publicity for all products containing melatonin. In addition, some products which are currently available for sale likely to be withdrawn from sale after the ban becomes official.
