Global Menstural Cup Market 2016-2020
About Menstrual Cup
A menstrual cup is a form of menstrual protection that forms a seal to collect menstrual fluids. Unlike a tampon, which absorbs the fluids, the menstrual cup simply collects while maintaining the natural moisture. Menstrual cups reduce the risk of TSS and hold more menstrual fluids than tampons. They can be used for approximately 10 years. Currently, there are two types of cups available in the market: A bell-shaped cup made of rubber (latex), thermoplastic elastomer or silicone; and polyethylene.
Menstrual cups are segmented into two categories: disposable and reusable menstrual cups. Disposable menstrual cups, as the name indicates, can be used only once while reusable menstrual cups are available in varied sizes, shapes, materials, patterns, and absorbencies. They can be reused for many years.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The key factor in this market though is to increase awareness of what is still a relatively new product in the eyes of consumers. This means that vendors are under increased pressure to introduce new marketing strategies. Social media plays a prominent role in this.”
According to the report, the shift in consumer interest toward menstrual cups is the key driver for the growth of this market. In recent times, it has been observed that many consumers prefer menstrual cups due to the usage of harmful chemicals and raw materials in sanitary pads and tampons. Since these chemicals negatively affect the health of individuals and lead to complications like vaginal dryness, the consumers’ preference for menstrual cups will increase during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that lack of awareness about the product among women in many developing economies is hindering growth
