Cough, Cold and Allergy (Hay Fever) Remedies in Slovakia - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Dec 08 2015

Cough, cold and allergy (hay fever) remedies benefit from an effective image for alleviating common cold and flu. Consumers are also attracted by the time-saving benefits of these products, with many being keen to avoid a trip to the doctor. However, sales growth is being hindered by maturity and by consumers taking a more proactive approach to health. Consumers thus became more likely to take vitamins and dietary supplements to treat colds or flu, such as vitamin C or echinacea.

Competitive Landscape

GlaxoSmithKline is the leading player in cough, cold and allergy (hay fever) remedies and accounted for a value share of 17% in 2015. The company benefits from its dominance in combination products, where its Coldrex range accounted for an impressive 58% value share in the year. The company thus benefited from strong sales growth in overall combination products, despite losing share in this area as many chemists/pharmacies broadened their offer. The company also benefited from investing in stronger advertising for Coldrex MaxGrip from 2012 onwards, with this brand positioned as offering powerful and swift relief and thus attracting many busy consumers and workers.
