Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Marissa Gilbert, a leading analyst in the Health & Wellness sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
A majority of consumers turn to some form of OTC (over-the-counter) pain management product to treat pain, with OTC internal analgesics remaining the dominate choice for pain relief, though external analgesics continue to experience faster growth. Looking forward, consumers’ need for pain treatments is not expected to change, and a preference for familiar brands will remain; however, store brand remedies are considered an acceptable choice in many cases and will challenge market growth.
