Growth for Contraceptives Slumps Temporarily amid Covid-19 Outbreak, Fact.MR Study

The coronavirus outbreak is projected to cause a slump in the sales of contraceptive products owing to lockdowns and social distancing practices being used extensively among users. In addition, a drop in production rates of condoms, IUDs, and more along with trade restrictions will impact the global market. These trends are likely to hamper the growth of the contraceptives market through the end of the pandemic.

However, a high rate of unwanted pregnancies among the younger consumer demographic is likely to help in resurgence of demand, post the pandemic. Also, rising awareness about STDs and birth control awareness programs will help in recovery of the industry once lockdown restrictions are eased in the coming months. Consequently, the contraceptives market is estimated to surpass a valuation of 37 Bn by the end of the projection period in 2025.

“A significant number of women around the globe are delaying childbirth, as careers gain priority. In addition, issues associated with the costs of raising children, uncertainties over job security and standard of living are resulting in a higher adoption rate of contraceptive products, among young adults, which will help with sustained growth for the foreseeable future,” says the FACT.MR study.
