Description

Popularisation of various health concerns continues to fuel stable growth across all consumer health categories but most notably for over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. Given the lack of government health facilities, expensive price points of private clinics and convenience-driven lifestyles, OTC drugs represents the quickest and easiest solution when consumers fall sick. Hong Kong's labour force works long schedules - 55 hours per week leads to problems of high stress levels and lack of sleep.
