The global hormonal contraceptive market size is expected to reach USD 26.2 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period. Introduction of innovative products in the market and growing awareness about reproductive and sexual health in emerging regions are likely to drive the market in the coming years.
Pill, Intrauterine Devices (IUD), injectable, vaginal rings, implants, and patches are various methods used for hormonal contraception. Hormonal contraception methods act on the endocrine system to prevent ovulation.
Increasing number of women in developing economies are using contraceptives due to rise in government initiatives and programs, which is anticipated to accelerate market growth. For instance, according to the UN, approximately 64.0% of women between 15 and 49 years of age were using some form of family planning in 2015, be it traditional or modern. This figure stood at 36.0% in 1970.
The number of unintended pregnancies annually is highest in U.S., which is about 3 million. Hence, the Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMCS) established a Maternal and Infant Health Initiative for the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) program to promote use of effective methods of contraception and help women avoid such pregnancies.
