As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Intrauterine Devices Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the global intrauterine devices market reached a value of US$ 3.7 Billion in 2017. Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are small T-shaped contraceptive devices which are inserted into the uterus. The copper or hormones present in these devices alters the cervical mucus lining which prevents fertilization. Intrauterine devices are usually a form of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) which aid in birth control for an extended period and can last for 5 to 10 years, depending on the type. They have minimal side effects when compared to other methods of contraception and are associated with less discomfort. The cost-effectiveness, high-efficiency rates and safe nature of these devices are providing a boost to the sales of intrauterine devices worldwide.
Unintended pregnancies and unplanned births can pose a major threat to the health of a woman. Increasing rates of unexpected pregnancies across the globe are leading women to use contraceptive methods like IUDs as a precautionary measure, thereby spurring the growth of the market. Another trend that has been witnessed among the women in developed countries is delaying pregnancy until their thirties. Due to their reversible nature, intrauterine devices are being preferred by these women as the primary method of contraception. Further, NGOs such as The International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) are working towards improving women’s health by addressing the high maternal mortality rates in low?resource countries and encouraging women to make informed decisions about effective contraceptive methods. An increasing number of initiatives by such organizations is anticipated to propel the demand for intrauterine devices. Due to these factors, the market value is estimated to reach US$ 4.6 Billion by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 3.8 % during 2018-2023.
