Rise in Unwanted Pregnancies to Spur Contraceptives Market, Poised to Register Downturn due to COVID-19 Pandemic
Most unwanted pregnancies occur among adolescents and young women. Such pregnancies are a major source of the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as HIV, chlamydia, genital herpes and hepatitis B.

Other trends, notably the introduction of new, innovative and low cost contraceptive devices by key market players is also expected to significantly leverage the contraceptives market. For instance, Agile Therapeutics is performing a stage 3 trial for Twirla, a contraceptive patch designed to deliver a low daily dose of estrogen.
The COVID-19 pandemic is poised to bring about a downturn in the sales of contraceptives, owing to social distancing and limited physical contact among young people. The global supply of external physical barriers such as condoms shall experience a drop, owing to tighter border restrictions regarding import and export of products and reduced production.

COVID-19 Market Insights:
The outbreak of the novel coronavirus respiratory disease, or COVID-19, has affected millions globally. As the risk of infections grows exponentially, countries are taking heavy precautionary measures to contain the spread of the deadly virus.
With people practicing social distancing, physical contact of any kind, be it handshakes, hugs, kisses or sexual intercourse has been significantly restricted. This is anticipated to significantly impact the sales of contraceptive devices during the forecast period.
Physical barriers, especially condoms, are anticipated to witness a downturn, owing to shutting down of several production units. In Asia, several Chinese factories were shuttered when the pandemic initially broke out and workers were forced to stay home in order to contain the spread of the infection. Since most condom manufacturers are situated in Asia, the global supply of the physical contraceptive barrier shall be disrupted.
The closing of international borders in the wake of the pandemic has limited delivery flows of contraceptives, essential maternal health medicines and antiretroviral drugs. Fortunately, the healthcare industry has recognized this and key players are bolstering efforts to stave off the negative impact of supply-chain disruptions in the global contraceptives market.
The UN Population Fund (UNFPA), in its interim technical brief in March 2020, advocated governments to promote public and private partnership to mobilize the private sector to enhance supplies of sanitary items and medical equipment and redouble efforts to ensure the procurement, provision, appropriate administration and in-country distribution of required sexual and reproductive health products (SRH), continue investing in reproductive and sexual health supply chain and protective clothing for clinical management of COVID-19.
