Global Contraceptive Pills Market By Pill Type (Progestin Pills & Combination Pills), By Category (Generic & Branded), By Sales Channel (Offline & Online), By Region (North America, Europe, APAC, South America & MEA), Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2024

Global contraceptive pills market was valued at $ 6 billion in 2018 expected to witness growth at a CAGR of 6.6%, to reach $ 8.8 billion by 2024 owing to the rising awareness regarding contraception methods in emerging countries. Contraceptive pill is one of the most commonly used forms of reversible birth control. This form of birth control suppresses ovulation (the monthly release of an egg from the ovaries) by the combined actions of the hormones estrogen and progestin, thereby drastically reducing the chances of becoming pregnant.

Given the widespread implications of unwanted pregnancies, the market for contraceptive pills is expected to experience a surge during the forecast period. However, factors like time constraints associated with the intake of emergency contraceptive pills and their side-effects, are expected to hamper the sales of emergency contraceptive pills during forecast period.

In terms of category, contraceptive pills market is segmented into generic and branded, of which branded drug category accounted for a significant share in global contraceptive pills market in 2018 and the segment is anticipated to maintain its dominance during forecast period as well.

Regionally, North America accounted for a significant share of around 40% of global contraceptive pills market in 2018. The growth of North American contraceptive pills market is majorly attributable to the strong presence of key market players, higher awareness about sexual health and large number of unintended pregnancies in the region. Among countries, US contraceptive pills market accounted for majority share in North America contraceptive pills market in 2018 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance during forecast period as well.
