Growing Awareness about SITs and Unwanted Pregnancy offer Solid Boost to Demand 

Worldwide demand for contraceptive methods is driven by the need for intentional prevention of conception among men and women. Demand has also been strengthened by the intensifying need for preventing sexually transmitted diseases (SIT). Particularly in developing countries, this has been bolstered by growing awareness and knowledge about SITs propagated by constant campaigning. The contraceptives market also gained robust momentum from the popularity of oral contraceptive pills in women of reproductive age, where they prefer combined hormonal pills as the main means of preventing pregnancy.

Various contraceptive methods are also growing in popularity among men who are increasingly aware about the sexual health of their partners. The contraceptives market has seen solid revenue potential from growing demand in adolescent girls in avoiding unplanned pregnancy. This is notable in developed countries of the world where contraceptive prevalence rate is high. Especially in vulnerable sections of numerous developing countries, contraceptives have begun occupying crucial role in preventing maternal deaths due to unwanted pregnancy.

The ease of availability of various contraceptives, such as of contraceptive pills and condoms, in pharmacies, online platforms, and clinics, has boosted the market.
