OTC Market Is Not Largely Impacted by Recession; However, Prominent Growth Remains Only in Some Categories, According to Kline

LITTLE FALLS, N.J., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The overall OTC market grew 3.2% during non-recession years and only 1.2% during recessions according to the latest research Impact of Recessions on the U.S. OTC Market from worldwide consulting and research firm Kline & Company.

The impact of recessions on the OTC market mainly comes from erosion of branded OTC sales by private-label products and is reflected in slower growth rates. The level of erosion varies by product classes and categories. However, Rx-to-OTC switches, major innovations, and new product launches with related promotion that occur during recessions help cancel the effect of private-label erosion.

For instance, the Rx-to-OTC switch of Claritin in 2003 only lost 18% of sales to its sales to private-label competitors in the non-recession period, while private-label equivalents of Zyrtec launched in early 2008 seized one-forth of brand sales during 2009, a recession year.

"There is clear evidence that private-label OTCs grow at significant rates during a recession.

In previous recessionary periods, overall OTC sales declined two years in a row; from 1999 to 2000 overall manufacturers' s
