Consumer attitudes towards self-medication
According to industry experts, three quarters of the German population over the age of 15 years old selfmedicate. It is estimated that around 50% of the population regularly use self-medication products for health maintenance and sickness prevention, making a considerable contribution to public health and alleviating pressure on the state healthcare budget.

Consumers’ income elasticity regarding preventive products (vitamins, minerals and natural mineral water, etc) is greater than that for therapeutic medicines in Germany. Knowledge about medicines is increasing all the time, forming a solid basis for the appropriate use of medicines for the purposes of self-medication. The majority of German consumers regard themselves as well informed about medicines. German consumers are typically able to ask for OTC products by name, and are showing increasing brand loyalty.
