As the curtains close on a year of unprecedented consolidation in the consumer health industry, another prized asset has been snatched up. Belgium’s Omega Pharma NV, which itself was taken private just two years previously, has agreed to be acquired by the Irish-American private label powerhouse Perrigo Co Plc. While the deal’s US$4.5 billion valuation pales in comparison to the GlaxoSmithKline-Novartis joint venture (scheduled for early 2015 completion) or Bayer’s US$14.2 billion acquisition of Merck & Co Inc’s consumer division in October, it nevertheless testifies to the ongoing attractiveness of the industry and the need to diversify portfolios across geographies and categories. While Perrigo’s purchase may mark the last significant deal of 2014, consolidation in consumer health is expected to continue well beyond the New Year.

Snapshots of GlaxoSmithKline’s Consumer Healthcare Division and Horlicks’ Sales

Hope.LeeAnalyst Insight by Hope Lee - Senior Beverages Analsyt

The bribery case in China and disappointing second-quarter results have put GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in the headlines again. The pharmaceutical giant was initially reported to be looking to spin off its Consumer Healthcare division and make it a stand-alone company – but GSK quickly denied any such plans. Simon Steel, GSK’s spokesman, later stated that GSK would not rule out the possibility of one day divesting the unit, but that it is not currently being considered, at least in the short term. The quick denial raised interest in the media and among analysts as to what exactly GSK plans to do with the consumer unit and a decision about the future of Horlicks in the long term.

GSK Novartis global value map

In April 2014, GlaxoSmithKline Plc and Novartis AG announced plans to create a consumer health joint venture to be completed in the first half of 2015. Their extensive global presence and range of top-selling consumer health brands have the potential to establish the partnership as the new industry leader. Pending approvals, the joint venture will be a powerhouse in over-the-counter remedies and hold a commanding market share of analgesics, NRT smoking cessation aids, dermatologicals and more.

Strategy Briefing: Opportunities and Challenges in Global Participatory Sport

250_particSport-v1.1According to our new report, health and vanity have been the two largest influencers on consumer exercise.  Obesity has been identified largely as a public health issue due to excessive amounts of media coverage. Therefore, governments around the world have started many initiatives to encourage consumers to exercise more.  Some have even increased funding for public sports facilities or provided tax incentives.

Physical attractiveness has also been an important aspect of exercise, as mass media applies much pressure on the consumer to appear perfect, with many ads featuring airbrushed models.  This aspirational perfectionism has not only fuelled interest in exercise but has also increased body disorders, which have also risen over the past decade.

Some of the latest popular exercises include extreme sports such as rock climbing and adventure sports such as triathlons. Many health clubs continued to see growth in developed countries as well, even in spite of the recession.

The increased participation in exercise has led to marketing opportunities and product success in many industries, particularly apparel.  Sportswear sales have consistently outperformed the wide apparel market over recent years, with outdoor clothing becoming popular. 

“There are many market opportunities within apparel, health and supplements, sports and energy drinks, and electronics to cater to the exercise and health conscious consumer,” says Editorial Director, Gina Westbrook.  “Our report really highlights opportunities and challenges globally within exercise and sports consumption.”
