London, UK (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
In 2012, the consumer health market in the Netherlands registered positive growth in value terms due to rapid ageing of the population, growing concentration of the population in urban areas, increasing availability of OTC medicines, growing consumers’ health awareness and rising health concerns. Local consumers tend to spend more on innovative symptom-specific products with such properties such as higher effectiveness and faster control of discomfort and pain.
The consumer health market in the Netherlands is characterized by intensifying competition between traditional and emerging distribution channels. However, drugstores/parapharmacies remain leaders amongst distribution channels for consumer health products in the country. At the same time, online retail sales are gaining popularity. The market is forecast to continue growing at a healthy rate in the years to come, though the expected CARG is slightly lower than the one in 2012.
