Condom Market: Segmentation
This market research report includes detailed market segmentation by distribution, end-users, product types, material types, and geography. The increased demand from institutions such as public health organizations, NGOs, and global organizations to promote the concept of safe sex and increase the awareness of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) is significantly contributing to the growth of the condom market worldwide. Institutional buyers such as UNFPA, USAID, WHO, and other UN agencies are the most significant promoters of male and female condoms. Further, as the fight against HIV has been on for decades now, the demand from institutional condoms in underdeveloped regions has witnessed a significant rise in the past years.
The male condoms segment dominates the condoms market worldwide. A high sexual vigor among males is the major factor for the high percentage of the male condoms segment. Also, the ease of availability, wearability, and disposability of these condoms is another driver for the high share of the segment. Currently, the global female condom market is witnessing rapid growth in the demand for female condoms across the globe.
Given their excellent tensile strength, tear resistance, and resilience, the latex condoms segment dominated the condom market in 2018. Latex remains the predominantly used raw material for the manufacturing of male condoms. The massive purchase and distribution of latex condoms by federal health bodies and UN health missions is another major driver for the high share of the segment.
While the majority of condom distribution takes place through retail stores, established by leading condom manufacturers such as Reckitt Benckiser and Church & Dwight, the increasing sale of condoms via online stores and online direct-to-consumer stores is expected to drive the condom market during the forecast period. The growth of online sales is expected to increase by over 20% YOY during the forecast period.
