DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "U.S. Contraceptive Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Pills, Intrauterine Devices (IUD), Condoms, Vaginal Ring, Subdermal Implants, Injectable), and Segment Forecasts, 2022-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The U.S. contraceptive market size is expected to reach USD 12.0 billion by 2030 registering a CAGR of 4.70%.

Improving access and awareness regarding Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARCs) and the effectiveness and convenience of using these products are expected to drive the growth of the industry.

The Guttmacher Institute reported that 60% of women belonging to the reproductive age use contraception in the U.S. Use of hormonal contraceptives other than the birth control pill has significantly increased in married women.

The increasing availability of contraceptives in the U.S. has improved several aspects of society such as education, career opportunities, and poverty for women. Access to modern methods of contraception has significantly improved career opportunities and allowed women to earn wages at par with men.

Moreover, it has also reduced the number of women living in poverty due to unintended pregnancies and the high costs associated with raising a child. The legalization of family planning in the majority of the states has reduced the economic burden for the next generation as there has been a substantial reduction in the number of citizens living in poverty as adults.

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has showcased a negative impact on the market partially offsetting the initiatives by manufacturers. Short-term contraceptives such as birth control pills and condoms require re-prescription filling and frequent purchase, which may increase the risk of exposure to the virus.

Thus, usage of these products has been limited during the pandemic. Moreover, the availability and distribution of contraceptives at public healthcare centers have been impacted in the U.S. Unemployment and loss of insurance that covers expenses of contraceptives in the U.S. are also anticipated to limit usage during the COVID-19 pandemic.
