Apart from the substitutes such as IUDs, pills, and transdermal patches, female condoms are expected to see a moderate growth as vendors are focusing on penetrating into both developed and developing regions with good quality. Further, the focus in expanding awareness about contraceptives will drive the popularity of female condom in the market. Developed countries, such as the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, and Italy and few other developed European nations, are having negligible usage of female condom. This is due to the changing lifestyle and the increase in disposable income among individuals that has gained importance leading to a drastic reduction in fertility rates in most of the developed countries.
Female condom has proved its efficacy in reducing unintended pregnancies and allowing women to plan for a family. Many government organizations have taken initiatives to create awareness and stop problems caused due to unintended pregnancies that lead to serious issues. The UN committee of Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights has made clear about the right to sexual and reproductive health that obligates to have affordable access to contraceptives. The market has significant opportunities to offer contraceptives with the availability of a wide range of contraceptives that are easy to use, affordable, and have 90% compliance among individuals.

Rising awareness in schools, colleges, mass media campaigns, workshops, and access to screening and treatment, which is stigma-free will have significant impact on the sales of female condoms in both developed and developing countries. A major advantage of female condoms is that they have no interruption and can provide enhanced sexual pleasure for both men and women.” – Mohammed Azhar, Senior Research Analyst (Research – Healthcare) at Infoholic Research
