High Incidence Rate of Unintended Pregnancies and Surge in Programs by Governments and NGOs to Promote Usage of Contraceptive Pills: Key Drivers

  • High incidence of unintended pregnancies among women aged between 15 and 44 drives demand for contraceptives
  • Large percentage of these unintended pregnancies result in abortions, which entail preventable healthcare expenditure. In an attempt to curb this redundant healthcare expenditure, governments of various countries, including developed and developing nations such as the U.S., Sweden, Norway, and India, encourage women to opt for more effective modern contraceptive methods.
  • Governments of various countries and NGOs such as Population Services International (PSI), Marie Stopes International, and Futures Group, along with prominent market players organize family planning programs and contraception awareness programs to expand the knowledge about contraceptives and their advantages in preventing pregnancy. For instance, Marie Stopes International entered into strategic agreements with contraceptive manufacturers, such as Bayer HealthCare, to cater to the unmet contraception (pill and implant) needs of women in the emerging and underdeveloped (Africa) economies by reducing prices by around 50%.

Increase in Maternal Age and Late Pregnancies Boost Market Growth

  • Globally, the average age of first time mothers is increasing, especially in developed countries such as the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, and Japan. Financial stability, rise in literacy rates, and social factors are the major factors responsible for advancing maternal age.
  • For instance, in the U.S., the average age of first time mothers was 26 years in 2013. It increased to 30 years in 2018. Oral contraceptive pills are largely used to manage late pregnancies among women. Japan, China, Turkey, and Iran are some of the countries in Asia experiencing rapid rise in the average age of first time mothers.
  • Therefore, rise in average maternal age is likely to increase demand for oral contraceptive pills globally

Side Effects and Ethical & Social Issues to Hamper Market

  • Contraceptive drugs involve several health risks and side effects, discouraging their use in women. Hence, women opt for natural contraceptive and permanent contraceptive methods such as sterilization, vasectomy, tubal ligation, and withdrawal. Contraceptive pills carry serious long-term and life-threatening side effects such as increased risk of breast cancer, blood clots, and stroke. This discourages the consumers from using them. Other side effects include high blood pressure, nausea, stroke, dizziness, and mood swings.
  • Various ethical and social issues regarding certain contraceptive methods, especially contraceptive pills, lead to restriction on their usage in some countries. For instance, sale of emergency contraceptive pills is restricted in the Middle East, as these are considered a means of abortion.
