Focus on Family Planning Benefits Players in Global Market
The rising incidence of unplanned and unintended pregnancies is the primary growth driver for the global oral contraceptive pills market. Women between the age brackets of 15 to 44 are the major consumers and users of oral contraceptive pills. Often, such pregnancies result in abortions, which has prompted NGOs along with private and public institutions to raise awareness about oral contraceptive pills. Owing to this reason there has been a considerable rise in the preventable healthcare solutions. Several countries such as Norway, India, Sweden, and the U.S. are urging women to use safe oral contraception methods to prevent an unnecessary medical emergency. Several married women are also opting for oral contraceptive pills in order to plan their pregnancies and also to avoid them, in case the couple decides not to have children.
Several market players have also been organizing family planning programs to spread awareness about oral contraceptive pills and their benefits in the long run. Back in 2012, Marie Stopes International and Bayer HealthCare agreed to provide oral contraception pills or implants to women in the developing regions of Africa at reduced prices. These efforts are aimed at ensuring a logical approach for population control and allowing the women to exercise their choice in procreation. Factors such as strengthening economies, improving disposable incomes, and rising awareness amongst the overall population are also projected to benefit the global market.
Dangerous Side Effects of Oral Contraceptive Pills Dissuades Market Growth
Despite the several plus points of oral contraceptive pills, the market is being hampered due to the possible side effects they can cause. These pills have a potential to lead to breast cancer, stroke, and blood clots. These factors have been significantly discouraging women from consuming these pregnancy prevention pills. On the other hand, women have been opting for sterilization, tubal ligation, and vasectomy. Ethical and social issues toward contraception in regions such as the Middle East are also estimated to restrict the growth of the global market.
