Analyst Opinion

The Cold & Cough Remedies (Pharmacies) market in Chile is experiencing significant growth and development.

Customer preferences:
Consumers in Chile are increasingly seeking over-the-counter remedies for cold and cough symptoms. This shift in consumer behavior can be attributed to several factors. Firstly, the convenience of purchasing these remedies from pharmacies makes them an attractive option for consumers. Additionally, the rising awareness of the importance of self-care and the desire to alleviate symptoms quickly and effectively has also contributed to the increased demand for cold and cough remedies.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the Cold & Cough Remedies (Pharmacies) market in Chile is the growing demand for natural and herbal remedies. Consumers are becoming more conscious of the potential side effects of conventional medications and are seeking alternative options. This trend is in line with the global shift towards natural and organic products. As a result, pharmaceutical companies are introducing a wider range of natural remedies to cater to this growing demand. Another trend in the market is the increasing popularity of combination products. These products offer a combination of multiple active ingredients to target various cold and cough symptoms. Consumers find these products convenient and cost-effective as they address multiple symptoms with a single medication. This trend is driven by the desire for simplicity and efficiency in managing cold and cough symptoms.

Local special circumstances:
Chile has a high incidence of cold and cough due to its geographical location and climate. The country experiences cold winters, which can lead to an increase in respiratory infections. This local special circumstance creates a consistent demand for cold and cough remedies throughout the year. Additionally, the country's aging population also contributes to the demand for these remedies as older individuals are more susceptible to respiratory illnesses.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The growing middle class in Chile is a significant driver of the Cold & Cough Remedies (Pharmacies) market. As disposable incomes rise, consumers have more purchasing power to spend on healthcare products. This increase in purchasing power has led to a greater demand for over-the-counter remedies for cold and cough symptoms. Furthermore, the Chilean government's focus on healthcare and improving access to medication has also contributed to the growth of the market. The government has implemented policies to increase the availability of medications in pharmacies, making it easier for consumers to access cold and cough remedies. In conclusion, the Cold & Cough Remedies (Pharmacies) market in Chile is experiencing growth and development due to changing customer preferences, such as the demand for natural and combination products. Local special circumstances, such as the country's climate and aging population, also contribute to the market's growth. Additionally, underlying macroeconomic factors, such as the growing middle class and government initiatives, play a significant role in driving the market's expansion.

Modeling approach:

Market sizes are determined through a bottom-up approach, building on specific predefined factors for each market market. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use industry associations, third-party studies and reports and survey results from our primary research (e.g., the Statista Global Consumer Survey).

This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, forecasts are based on historical developments, current trends, and key market indicators, using advanced statistical methods. For forecasting digital trends such as the online-pharmacy sales share we use exponential trend smoothing and the s-curve method. The main drivers are healthcare expenditure per country and consumer healthcare spending.
