A sanitary napkin vending machine is an automatic self-service machine used for dispensing sanitary napkins against acceptance of coins. Its mechanical coin acceptor requires no electricity and is a single value coin acceptor. Sanitary napkin vending machines are easy to install. These machines are installed in public as well as in commercial places such as parks, shopping complexes, movie theaters, metro stations, hospitals, schools, colleges, bus stops, and others. Sanitary napkin vending machines are available in two mounting options: wall mounted and table top. The machine is made from metal and sturdy Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastic or a material which makes it vandal resistant. Manufacturers are expected to focus on untapped urban markets, and increasing their CSR (corporate social responsibility) activities related to women's hygiene. In addition, manufacturers are distributing sanitary napkin vending machines free of cost in slums and rural areas along with conducting awareness programs. All these factors are expected to increase the sanitary napkin vending machine market demand for sanitary napkin vending machines across the world. Increasing women’s population, and increasing awareness about female hygiene and health issues are all expected to spur market attractiveness of sanitary napkin vending machines across the world. In addition, governments are encouraging manufacturers to increase their marketing strategies and conduct hygiene campaigns to change the perceptions of women and increase awareness about the health benefits of using sanitary napkins, thus accelerating the growth of the global sanitary napkin vending machine. Sanitary napkins are a basic need of women; but they perceive these products to be expensive. However, associations worldwide are making efforts to provide these products tax free and at a lower cost.
