New Market Report: Sleep Aids in South Korea

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Jan 20 2016

Sleep aids saw relatively limited retail value sales growth of 2% in 2015, as retail volume sales saw a marginal decline. While consumers in the country have a need for improved quality of sleep, people do not usually rely on sleep aids to fall asleep. Many consumers self-medicate with tea, herbs, music therapy, and other meditation-based approaches. Meanwhile, consumers who suffer severe sleeping disorders and do not see progress through remedies such as these, tend to turn to prescribed medication.

Competitive Landscape

Kwang Dong Pharm Co Ltd, with the Woo Hwang Chung Sim Won brand, dominates sleeping aids in South Korea, accounting for a retail value sales share of 68% in 2015. Following manufacturers also use the same term ‘Woo Hwang Chung Sim Won’ with their company name or brand name added in front. For example, the second leading player in the category, Cho Seon Pharm Co Ltd, which accounted for a retail value sales share of 25% in 2015, markets the Solpyo Woo Hwang Chung Sim Won brand.
