COVID-19 women’s health app market impact: 40.2% increase from 2019 to 2021

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted the overall mHealth app industry. During the pandemic, mHealth apps played an important role in mitigating the COVID-19 response. Due to lockdowns and increase focus on health, the demand for fitness apps increased globally

The pandemic is expected to create more self-awareness and self-care among females, especially working-class women. This is expected to increase the user base for fitness tracking apps around the world

The pandemic limited the hospital and physician visits for pregnant women and the ones undergoing fertility treatments. This led to an increase in the use of virtual care and self-care via women’s health apps

Health applications and digital platforms are projected to play a big role in enhancing women’s disease management in the forthcoming years. For instance, in April 2021, Nabla announced the launch of an app focused on feminine health. Such developments are anticipated to bode well for the market

 

For instance, in May 2021, the Australian government announced an investment of USD 244.3 million over the next 4 years. The investment will be used to support women’s health including funding for breast and cervical cancer, reproductive health, and endometriosis. Increasing funding for startup businesses and the entry of new players are propelling market growth. For instance, in September 2021, the Flo application received USD 50 million in Series B funding, bringing the total capital raised to USD 65 million. The company is planning to use the funding to develop personalized solutions and give users advanced insights related to their menstrual cycle and symptom patterns to aid in proactive management and improvement of their general wellbeing.

Type Insights

Based on type, the menstrual health segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for the largest share of more than 37.00% of the overall revenue. This is due to females becoming more aware of the necessity of maintaining hygiene during the menstrual cycles. High adoption of period tracking apps globally, along with the inclusion of innovative products and features by key players is boosting the segment growth. For instance, in June 2019, Apple Inc. added a menstrual cycle tracking software named Cycle Tracker, which is compatible with Apple’s Health App on the upcoming iOS 13 and Watches OS 6 update. The fitness & nutrition segment is poised to have high growth owing to the rising popularity of fitness applications and rising consumer interest in wellness therapies.
