Laboratoires URGO led the France cough remedies market in 2012, accounting for a 13% share of value sales. Its key range of Humex branded products continued to remain dynamic in 2012, despite a mitigated flu season, and especially thanks to its very broad coverage of more than 15 products in all the different categories within cold, cough and allergy (hay fever) remedies.

but was slightly lower than the 1% current value growth in 2011.

Over the forecast period cough, cold and allergy (hay fever) remedies is expected to see a negative constant value CAGR of 1%, for two main reasons: a shift in consumption pattern towards generics, which are generally sold at lower price; and an ever-increasing plethora of alternative products (such as homeopathic products), which will continue to intensify the competition and drive down prices as well as overall value sales. Finally, a general preference for preventive (rather than curative) products/measures/habits will put a further brake on the demand for curative medicines.
