Feminine Hygiene Products Market is projected to experience significant growth from 2018 to 2024.
Feminine hygiene products market will witness a significant growth due to improvements in the economy across the globe. Higher disposable incomes and increased purchasing power, as a result of improved economic growth, has led to improvements in the standard of living. Additionally, an upsurge in urbanization, rising number of working women as well as innovations in the feminine hygiene products lead to an increase in the demand for premium products, thus fueling the market growth.
Moreover, increasing number of programs to enhance public awareness pertaining to proper health and hygiene of females, government support and favorable initiatives as well as robust promotions and marketing strategies adopted by key players are some of the factors that will drive the female hygiene products market during the forecast period.
The industry growth is also attributable to the increase in organized retail market that enables easy access to feminine hygiene products, rapid urbanization, increasing demand of women for organic and biodegradable products in order to minimize health hazards caused by dyes, irritants and other harmful chemicals found in tampons or sanitary napkins.
