The global emergency contraceptive pills market size reached US$ 561.2 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 736.7 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.74% during 2023-2028. The increasing awareness among the masses regarding contraception and family planning, the implementation of supportive policies by governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the recent development of non-hormonal ECPs represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) refer to birth control medications used for preventing unwanted pregnancies. They are manufactured using synthetic hormones, such as levonorgestrel, which delays ovulation, changes the linings of the uterus, and prevents egg fertilization. ECPs are widely used during the failure of traditional methods of contraception, after unprotected sexual intercourse, as a backup for missing routine birth control pills, and by the victims of sexual assault crimes. They are safe, cost-effective, accessible, and highly convenient medications that do not cause long-term fertility issues, successfully prevent unintended pregnancies, and eliminate the need for abortions. ECPs also provide better control over reproductive health, empower women, reduce anxiety and stress, and minimize side effects.
Emergency Contraceptive Pills Market Trends:
The increasing awareness among the masses regarding contraception and family planning is one of the key factors propelling the market growth. ECPs are widely used by women as a safe, convenient, and highly comfortable form of emergency contraception, which prevents unwanted pregnancies, maintains privacy, and minimizes the risks of side effects and future complications. Along with this, the widespread product utilization due to rising incidences of unintended pregnancies owing to unprotected intercourse and sexual assault is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the implementation of supportive policies by governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to spread awareness, educate the masses, and provide easy access to emergency contraception is positively influencing the market growth. Additionally, the recent development of non-hormonal ECPs, which contains ulipristal acetate that blocks progesterone receptors in the body and produces fewer side effects compared to traditional levonorgestrel-based pills, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Apart from this, the rising product adoption owing to the increasing focus on women's health and well-being across the globe is favoring the market growth. Besides this, the growing demand for over-the-counter (OTC) products that don't require prescriptions and can be easily accessed by women in case of emergency is supporting the market growth. Moreover, aggressive promotional and branding campaigns by manufacturers through social media, influencer marketing, television (TV) commercials, and celebrity endorsement are contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of consumers, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, and easy product availability across e-commerce platforms, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
