Increase in Incidence of Unwanted Pregnancies to Drive Market

The global contraceptives market is expected to be driven by increase in efforts by governments to raise awareness about the negative effects of population growth and unwanted pregnancies. Various government programs aim to meet the rise in demand for modern contraception methods as well as sexual and reproductive health services. Young people, adolescents, and women should be involved in all stages of evaluation, implementation, and planning for these health services. Many women are delaying motherhood these days as career prioritization has taken hold among many women.
