Growing awareness about sexual health concerns and changing the economic structure to drive market growth
There has been a widespread increase in STDs and STIs over the last few years. This, in turn, has led to growing awareness for sexual health and well-being and concerted efforts in preventing these diseases. This awareness will positively impact the demand and purchase of contraceptives, and in turn, the growth of the global condom market over the next few years.
Contraceptives are essential devices for birth control as well. With the increase in per-capita income and rise in dual-income households due to urbanization and career-focused lifestyles in the developing countries, the use of contraceptives is increasing, thereby giving a healthy push to the global condom market. Introduction to innovative designs, increased impact of the internet on consumers’ purchasing behavior, and the popularity of female condom are the latest trends that are expected to shape the market positively over the next few years.
Female condom segment witnessing considerable growth
In 2017, the male contraceptive segment dominates the market both in terms of revenue and unit shipment and is expected to continue its dominance over the global market. However, the female contraceptives segment is also gaining popularity and is expected to contribute a significant share of revenue by 2023. The global female condom market is tipped to post a CAGR of 18.92% in terms of value during the period 2018–2023.
Likewise, latex type contraceptives are the dominating segment in the market. Non-latex types are also gaining popularity and are expected to post a double-digit CAGR both in terms of revenue and shipment. Although the online sales channel is set to increase during the forecast period, the retail channel will still have the highest market share.
APAC to remain the dominant condom market both in terms of revenue and shipment
APAC will remain the largest market both in terms of revenue and shipment followed by North America. APAC is led by China where contraceptives are witnessing a surge in their demand. The market is witnessing high growth in regional markets such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea, and these devices are also gaining popularity among end-users. The penetration of sexual wellness products in North America remains high, and the market has been recording steady growth over the years. This growth will continue over the next few years due to the growing popularity of adult stores and a relaxed attitude toward sexuality among US nationals. One of the major reasons for this increase in demand is also an increase in the popularity of innovative condom such as “Hex” by LELO among end-users. Institutional buyers such as USAID, UNFPA, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and PSI are important growth boosters for the market in North America.
Increased awareness about condoms in African countries such as South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, among others has resulted in an increase in sales of these products in the region.
The market in Europe is growing consistently. The major reason for this growth is the high adoption of the condom by both sexes, with European women standing among the most active users of contraceptives.
The forecasted increase of per capita disposable income of people in the Latin American countries are expected to contribute to the growth of the market in the region.
