Now Available: Eye Care in Portugal

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

During the last decade pollution has been increasing in Portuguese cities, causing increasing eye-related problems such as dry eyes and red eyes, and more particularly allergies. Moreover, Portuguese consumers are spending longer hours in front of a close screen, such as a television, computer, tablet or smartphone. According to the Portuguese Society of Ophthalmology, an estimated 6% of the Portuguese adult population aged 15 to 65 suffers from dry eye disease and requires artificial tears or gel to lubricate their eyes and protect them from damage. Amongst the older Portuguese population (aged over 65) this prevalence reaches 33%. Therefore, the growing incidence of people suffering from chronic eye-related issues drove growth in 2015, with allergy eye care posting the highest growth rate.

Competitive Landscape

Reckitt Benckiser Portugal led eye care with a 19% value share in 2015. The company led standard eye care with a 37% value share thanks to its well-established Optrex brand. Laboratório Edol, Produtos Farmaceuticos was second with a 16% share. Its success relies on its Alerjon brand, which clearly led allergy eye care with a 33% value share in 2015.

Industry Prospects

Over the forecast period eye care is expected to be influenced by the same factors as observed in 2015. The increasing exposure to screens/monitors amongst Portuguese consumers, whether via televisions, PCs, smartphones or tablets, is expected to continue in the future. Another factor which is expected to influence eye care in the future is the already high number of people affected by allergies. This is also expected to continue in the forecast period, as pollution rates are forecast to increase in Portuguese cities.
