Market Report, "Vitamins and Dietary Supplements in Cameroon", published.

[USPRwire, Wed Mar 09 2016] There continues to be increased emphasis on the importance of vitamins for healthy growth and a better life among the population of Cameroon. This message is being promoted most obviously by direct selling companies which seek to improve consumer awareness of the wide variety of products they offer in Cameroon. Child-specific vitamins and dietary supplements are marketed particularly widely because of the consistent growth recorded in this category over the years. Multivitamins in syrup form are also very popular. Such products are regularly advertised, with manufacturers emphasising their importance in ensuring healthy growth for their children.

Competitive Landscape

During 2015, Novartis continued to perform strongly in vitamins and dietary supplements in Cameroon, leading the category. The company offers a wide range of single vitamins and multivitamins for adult and paediatric consumption. It also owns the leading brand in the category in 2015, Ca-C Sandoz. Its products are generally well positioned in chemists/pharmacies and they are advertised with in-store posters, leading to strong popularity across the country. However, in general, the category is becoming increasingly fragmented, especially with the growing success of direct sellers such as Forever Living and GNLD. Consumer loyalty seems to be increasingly dependent on recommendations by pharmacists and even doctors.
