Market Overview

The number of unwanted pregnancies is found increasing in the North American region, and it is a matter of serious concern all around the world. The increase in unwanted pregnancies has thus increased the usage of contraceptive devices in North America. Thus all these factors have been primary drivers for the growth of this market.

Moreover, initiatives by the government to raise awareness regarding contraceptives and family planning have also helped the growth of the market. As the right to obtain and use contraceptives is part of the fundamental right to privacy guaranteed by the United States Constitution. Thus, government initiatives are promoting the use of contraceptives to avoid unnecessary births. However, the side effects of contraceptive devices have been restraining market growth.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, contraceptive drugs and devices are used for birth control. Contraception is more commonly known as fertility, and birth control is described as the method used to avoid pregnancy. These devices and drugs function by changing the mechanism of ovulation or by acting as a physical barrier between the sperm and ovum. The proper use of contraceptives, such as female and male condoms, also prevents the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

Key Market Trends

Condoms are Expected to Dominate the Contraceptive Devices Market

A condom is a sheath-shaped barrier device used during sexual intercourse to reduce the probability of pregnancy or a sexually transmitted infection (STI). With its proper use, women whose partners use male condoms experience a 2% per-year pregnancy rate. Their use greatly decreases the risk of gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, hepatitis B, and HIV/AIDS. They also, to a lesser extent, protect against genital herpes, human papillomavirus (HPV), and syphilis.

The prevalence of STIs, though decreasing, but is still high in some parts of North America. As a result, the use of condoms has been increasing in developing economies like Mexico and developed countries like the United States.

According to a 2017 report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one-third of the men said they were used to using a condom every time they had sex. This number was reported to have increased in the past decade as per the report. Therefore, the increased use of condoms is expected to help the market growth.
