Sanitary Napkin Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The global sanitary napkin market reached a value of US$ 20.5 Billion in 2018. Sanitary napkins, also known as menstrual or sanitary pads, are absorbent items that are worn by women primarily for absorbing menstrual blood. They comprise numerous layers of quilted cotton fabric or other super absorbent polymers and plastics. They are currently available in various shapes and sizes, with different absorption capabilities. For several years, women have relied on homemade cotton clothes to deal with the menstrual cycle. However, the growing awareness among women about feminine hygiene has spurred the demand for sanitary napkins across the globe.

Global Sanitary Napkin Market Report

Governments in numerous countries, in confluence with various non-profit organizations (NGOs), are undertaking initiatives to spread awareness among women about feminine hygiene, particularly in the developing economies. For example, governments in various African countries are distributing free sanitary napkins to school girls to promote menstrual education. Apart from this, manufacturers are introducing low-cost products and focusing on product diversification to expand their consumer-base. For instance, they are launching napkins with wings and fragrances while minimizing the pad thickness. Further, the market is also influenced by aggressive promotions and marketing strategies adopted by major players in the industry. Moreover, the improving purchasing power of women, coupled with the increasing number of companies offering sanitary pad subscription plans, is another factor leading to a rise in the demand for premium products. Looking forward, the IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 28 Billion by 2024, at a CAGR of around 5.3% during 2019-2024.
