Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers Analysis

The major factors attributing to the growth of the Asia-Pacific contraceptive drugs and devices market include the necessity to avoid unwanted pregnancies and their complications. The need to avoid unwanted pregnancies, especially in teenage women, is one of the major drivers for this market. It is also observed that more than half of the women identify non-contraceptive health benefits, such as treatment for excessive menstrual bleeding, menstrual pain, and acne, as reasons for use.

Market Restraints

In spite of all these advantages, factors such as lack of acceptance faced by contraceptives are impeding the market growth. Socio-cultural opposition for the use of contraceptives in countries having conservative populations is a major restraining factor. Moreover, lack of accessibility and misperceptions about the use of contraceptives are some of the challenges faced by the contraceptive industry.

COVID-19 impact on “APAC Contraceptives Market”

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

Policy changes and Reimbursement scenario

More than 218 million women living in developing countries do not want to become pregnant but do not use effective contraceptive methods. For some of them, access to contraception is limited; for others, available methods are not acceptable or affordable. The goal of the Contraceptive Technology Innovation (CTI) Initiative is to develop new and strategically important contraceptives, through a strong focus on global partnerships, that ensures wide access to quality, affordable and acceptable products for those most in need. The CTI Initiative, a project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is in Phase 2 of implementation. Overall, the CTI Initiative aims to develop new contraceptive products that are safe, effective, low-cost, easy to use and appealing to women in greatest need.

Investment in contraceptive research to identify new products for women has been limited in the pharmaceutical industry relative to investment in drug development for other indications. Pharmaceutical R&D for male contraception was active in the 1990’s but was abandoned over a decade ago. The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) has supported a contraceptive development program since 1969. Through a variety of programs including research grants and contracts, NICHD has developed a pipeline of new targets/products for male and female contraception. A number of lead candidates are under evaluation in the NICHD Contraceptive Clinical Trials Network (CCTN)

The  condoms  are  the  most  commonly  used contraceptive  devices  accounting  for  around  two-thirds  of  the  contraceptives  market  share  in 2016. However, IUDs are gaining momentum and are expected to grow at a faster pace during the analysis period.

The condoms segment dominated the market in 2020 and intrauterine product (IUDs) segment is expected to be the fastest growing during the forecast period. Further, the condoms segment has been bifurcated into female condoms and male condoms. Similarly, the intrauterine product (IUDs) segment is bifurcated into hormonal IUDs and copper IUDs.

There are an around 2.8 to 4.5 million FSWs; 21.9 to 37.4 million clients of FSWs; 2 to 10 million MSM and 130 million migrant workers in China.
