The oral contraceptive pills market is expected to reach USD 24.0 Billion by 2025 from USD 13.8 Billion in 2016 at a CAGR of 6.4%.

Increasing population and various awareness initiatives that witness a good participation of women, adolescents, and young people, at all stages of planning, implementation, and evaluation helps in curbing the population as well as creates a demand for contraceptives resulting in increased sales.

Women are increasingly using oral contraceptive pills to prevent unwanted pregnancies

Besides, increase in the number of unstable relationships and high costs involved in raising a child are several factors that are increasingly causing women to postpone pregnancy, thereby fueling this industry. In the developing countries, the supply of contraceptives is lesser than the increasing demand of these drugs. Particularly in Africa, diseases like HIV etc. have made usage of drugs that prevent pregnancy essential for women. Thus, net sales of contraceptive products in developing countries are anticipated to increase the market growth over the forecast period. However, concerns regarding the side effects of products can negatively impact the product demand in future.
