Out of all these segments, contraceptive devices held the biggest market share, at about 60%, in 2013. This segment owes its huge success to the popularity of devices such as copper IUDs, male condoms, and inexpensive sub-dermal contraceptive implants such as sino-implants. By 2020, the contraceptive devices segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 3.5%. The contraceptives market is expected to witness a steady growth rate; the introduction of female condoms such as Bayer’s Skyla in the U.S. market and Jaydess in the European market will encourage this segment to expand in newer directions. Additionally, reduction in the price of Jadelle, a subdermal implant by Bayer HealthCare will also support the contraceptives market in the coming few years.

In terms of geography, North America held a dominant market share of more than 40% in 2013. However, Asia Pacific is expected to dominate this region with a CAGR of 4.5% in the forecast period. Countries such as India and China will contribute significantly to this phenomenon with their huge population base, rising disposable incomes, and growing awareness about the usage of contraceptives.
