Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing demand for other contraceptive methods. Other contraceptive methods are becoming more popular among women than topical contraceptives. This is because of the increased advantages provided by them. For instance, the demand for IUD, sterilization, female condoms, and oral pills is increasing.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is proliferation of strategic initiatives. Innovation and effectiveness of female contraceptives are the key to market growth. Several vendors are entering into strategic alliances and investing in R&D for product innovation and better financial stability, thereby developing the latest products with better efficiency, safety, and protection.
