Feminine Hygiene Products Market Growth and Trends

The most important factor contributing to the rise in the feminine hygiene product market growth is the safety and hygiene of women during the menstruation cycle. Women go through this natural process every month and in order to avoid infection during these times, it is very important to maintain safety and hygiene. Also, increasing awareness amongst women about the importance of hygiene is another key factor contributing to the feminine hygiene product market growth. Along with this, government initiatives to spread awareness in regards to women safety and hygiene is also an important factor contributing to the market demand. There has been a drastic change in the lifestyle and also a major boost in the purchasing power of the female population which has resulted in the increase in the feminine hygiene product market. Female hygiene products such as sanitary napkins, menstrual cups and tampons are user friendly, easy to use and very convenient thus impacting its increasing market growth and demand.
There has been an increase in the demand about alternative hygiene products such as tampons and party liners and increase in the consumer education and awareness has led to an increase in the demand of the products contributing to its market revenue. Also, innovation and advancements in the retail market has boosted the increase in the demand of tampons resulting in the high market trend.

The existing market for feminine hygiene products is most likely to witness booming growth in the coming years. The growth in demand for feminine hygiene products is expected to be accentuated on a worldwide basis as a result of increasing female population, rapid urbanization, increasing awareness of menstrual health and hygiene, and increasing purchasing power of females from women empowerment. Menstrual health and hygiene being treated as a fundamental right of women and girls, and hence considered as a key objective in its Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 calls for subsequent enhancement of female literacy in this area which would in turn create an awareness of the essentiality to use feminine hygiene products. This would consequently positively impact the mindsets and generate their demand and adoption also in suburban and rural sectors, boosting the practice of health management. Increased awareness and the use of disposable feminine hygiene products, such as sanitary pads, tampons, and panty liners, in comparison with reusable feminine hygiene products are driving this segment. The incentive of prevention of infection and illnesses that could be contracted without using personal hygiene products is a vital factor contributing to increased demand in the market. The high utility of these feminine personal hygiene products is a major propellant in their market growth, and therefore there would never be  declining demand in this category.

Personal hygiene requirements remain unattended to largely because of poverty, discriminatory social norms, gender inequality, and cultural taboos, as females are stigmatized, harassed, and socially excluded during menstruation. This compels girls and women to adopt traditional feminine hygiene products or completely avoid using them, thus restricting growth in demand for personal hygiene products. The non-biodegradability of feminine hygiene products adds to environmental concern but is being looked into by introducing eco-friendly product material to counter this challenge.

A few challenges to this market growth are the infections and allergies caused due to the usage of tampons and menstrual cups and low awareness about the existence of female hygiene products in the underdeveloped and developing nations.
