Condom Market Trends

  • Growing awareness regarding birth control is driving the market growth

This product can effectively lead to contraception when used consistently and appropriately, and this is the main driver of the condom industry's growth. For instance, the prevalence of male contraceptive products has climbed from 4.5% in 1994 to 10.0% in 2019 internationally, according to the United Nations' Contraceptive Use by Method 2019 report. According to the same data, from 64 million in 1994 to 189 million in 2019, the number of women (those between the ages of 15 and 49 who are fertile) who rely on male-based products as a form of contraception has significantly increased. The negative effects and hormonal imbalance caused by other birth control techniques, such as oral pills, might cause major health problems in females. Similar to this, as women demand that their sexual partners utilise effective birth control methods, increased educational levels among women have favourably influenced market growth. Therefore, compared to other approaches, its acceptance is likely to expand due to its convenient usage.

In order to raise public knowledge of STDs and lower their prevalence, the government is working to develop sex education programmes. For instance, according to UNAIDS' Global HIV & AIDS Statistics - 2020 fact sheet, 38.0 million people worldwide were estimated to be HIV-positive in 2019. In order to increase product demand in the near future, governments are concentrating on introducing relationships and sex education at a young age at the school level. Various campaigns like "Protect against STIs - Public Health England," joint programmes like "The 100% condom use programme" in Asia, as well as events like "Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week" and "World Contraceptive Day" are examples of additional activities.

Respective governmental entities and non-profit organisations (NGOs) that support people with STDs are trying to raise knowledge of STIs and the use of contraceptives, which is anticipated to spur market expansion.

In order to curb the spread of HIV and other STIs and prevent unplanned pregnancies, the governments of each nation are launching campaigns to increase awareness of the issue and encourage young people to use contraception. 90% of all HIV-positive individuals must get sustained antiretroviral medication, and 90% of those receiving antiretroviral therapy must have viral suppression in order to meet the UNAIDS 2020 target, which calls for 90% of all people with HIV to be aware of their HIV status. Participating nations aggressively encourage the use of condoms and give young people adequate sex education. It is anticipated that free condom distribution by governments with support from UNFPA and other organisations will promote condom use in rural regions. Thus, driving the Condom market revenue.

The Market segments of Condom, based on Material Type, includes Latex Condoms and Non-latex Condoms. Latex condoms segment dominated the global market in 2022. Over the course of the projection period, the demand for latex and non-latex condoms is anticipated to increase due to the introduction of new products and an ageing baby boomer population.

The concentration on producing male condoms by manufacturers, their acceptance of their usage as an alternative to the use of female condoms, and their wide product offerings are some of the reasons for the expansion of the male condom category. Due to the rising prevalence of HIV/AIDS, there is a significant unmet demand for male condoms in underdeveloped African nations. The majority of couples prefer using male condoms, which raises demand.
