Market Report, "Vitamins and Dietary Supplements in Dominican Republic", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Dec 21 2015

Although consumer awareness of vitamins and dietary supplements (VDS) continues to grow, the category is maturing and a large percentage of consumers view health care from a more reactionary perspective than as a preventative measure. Additionally, despite the growth of generics in the VDS space, vitamins and dietary supplements remain expensive to most consumers. Beginning with the severe economic downturn in 2013 when growth rates plummeted for VDS, the growth rates for 2014 and 2015 were lower than those posted during the first half of the review period 2010–2015. Consumer attitudes toward VDS, high unit prices and a narrowed target consumer audience all conspire to reduce value growth.

Competitive Landscape

Vitamins and dietary supplements (VDS) is an extremely diversified OTC category and competition remains highly fragmented. The top ten brands in VDS combine to account for 37% of value sales in 2015. Laboratorios ALFA CxA remains the leader in VDS, capturing a 9% current value share behind the strength of the company’s flagship brands Calciden and Complejo B Alfa. The brands are supported by solid distribution from a reputable manufacturer and maintain strong brand recognition.
