Contraception is the prevention of pregnancy by contraceptive methods other than abstinence and it is used to limit the size of the family. The percentage of women using contraceptives methods has increased in both developed and developing countries, in the last two decades. This has increased women’s opportunities to choose when and how many children they want to have, which has a positive impact not only on their rights to education but also on their right to health, an adequate standard of living amongst other human rights and work. Use of contraceptive methods for family planning reduces the numbers of risky and unintended pregnancies, which in turn reduces the risks of long-term morbidity and maternal mortality. But still, more than 222 million women in developing countries do not have access to modern contraceptives.

Thus, widely increasing the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections is continuously responsible for the growth of the contraceptive market. Moreover, according to the World Health Organization, there were approximately more than 36 million people living with HIV and around 1.10 million people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2015. HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death for women in their reproductive years. In 2014, more than 70% of pregnant women infected with HIV are using antiretroviral medicines to prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS to their children but still more than1.8 million children are living with HIV. Almost all of these children were infected by their HIV-infected mothers during childbirth, pregnancy or breastfeeding. Thus, rapidly increasing HIV-positive population is driving the market of contraceptive market. The contraceptive market is also growing with the new emerging products and technologies of contraception. However, cast-driven traditional fundamentals and increasing the prevalence of side effects due to improper use of contraception products may hamper the growth contraceptive market.
