New Market Report: Cough, Cold and Allergy (Hay Fever) Remedies in Hong Kong, China

New Healthcare market report from Euromonitor International: "Cough, Cold and Allergy (Hay Fever) Remedies in Hong Kong, China" 2014-08-14 09:28:22
Living conditions in Hong Kong result in a high incidence of coughs, colds and allergies. These are linked partly to extremely overcrowded living conditions for many consumers, with widespread use of air conditioners meanwhile resulting in sharp changes in temperature between indoors and outside. In addition, growth in tourist arrivals and in immigration from Mainland China resulted in consumers becoming exposed to new strains of coughs and colds. The sedentary and stressed lifestyles led by many Hong Kong consumers further erode their immune systems and result in a greater susceptibility to coughs, colds and flu. Overcrowding and pollution meanwhile result in a high incidence for allergies.

Competitive Landscape

GlaxoSmithKline leads sales of cough, cold and allergy (hay fever) remedies and accounted for almost 14% value share in 2013. This is largely thanks to offering a wide range of well-regarded brands supported by strong marketing and wide distribution with strong shelf positions in retailers. In combination products, the company for example offers the well-advertised Panadol Cold & Flu, Beechams Hot Lemon with a more traditional positioning and Coldrex with Vitamin C, offering rapid relief and immune-boosting vitamin C. Similarly, in antihistamines/allergy remedies (systemic) the company offers Piriton, Semprex and Beconase, while offering Dequadin in pharyngeal preparations and Valda in medicated confectionery.

Industry Prospects

The issues contributing to a high incidence of coughs, colds and allergies in Hong Kong are only expected to intensify in the forecast period. Growth in tourism and rising disposable income levels in Mainland China are for example likely to result in the city becoming increasingly crowded in the forecast period, with pollution levels increasing further. In addition, the use of air conditioners will continue to be strong, with this resulting in sharp changes in temperature being experienced frequently on a daily basis, while stressful and sedentary lifestyles will also contribute to many consumers struggling with poor immune systems.
