Consumer Health in Argentina
Published: November 27, 2020 Content info: 106 Pages
Description

Consumer health value sales will continue to grow in 2020, despite the negative economic impact of COVID-19 on the economy. Lower purchasing power among middle-income consumers and the rising cost of healthcare in Argentina have fuelled a shift towards self-medication in recent years, thus encouraging preventive healthcare. Following this trend, generics will continue to gain the attention of many price-sensitive consumers, who are now able to afford products that were previously too expensive.
