ReportsnReports: Consumer Health Market in Denmark

21-Mar-2012 | News-Press Release

Value sales of consumer health increased slightly in Denmark in 2011. In comparison to 2010, the market registered a stronger growth rate. With the more favourable economic context, demand was in general slightly higher. Even though consumer health products continued to be necessities, safety concerns and a downward price trend were the key factors preventing a stronger value growth in OTC sales. Experts’ warnings raised consumers’ concern about the side effects and potential risks of taking certain products such as calming and sleeping, NRT smoking cessation aids and vitamins and dietary supplements. Categories regarded as necessities, such as digestive remedies, analgesics or cough, cold and allergy (hay fever) remedies maintained value growth in 2011.

Consumer concerns and decreasing unit prices stagnate value growth
Physicians and nutrition experts have been increasingly warning Danish consumers about the dangers of overuse, the possible side effects and the possibility of dependency when taking vitamins, herbal/traditional products and NRT smoking cessation aids. Furthermore, the National Food Institute also suggested that it is not necessary for adolescents to take dietary supplements as most people can get the necessary vitamins and minerals through a healthy diet. Thus unfavourable views from the authorities and experts made consumers think twice before purchasing these products. This, together with the decreasing average unit prices, was the key factor behind the slowdown in value growth of consumer health products. The development of private label, cheaper generic products and expanding distribution affected unit prices in a downwards trajectory.
