The global feminine hygiene products market size was valued at USD 39.66 billion in 2022 and is expected to be worth USD 41.29 billion in 2023. The market is projected to reach USD 62.66 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period.
The sales of feminine hygiene products have grown tremendously in recent years as more women are gaining awareness on the importance of maintaining proper menstrual hygiene. Women residing in rural areas neither have access to proper menstrual hygiene products nor receive adequate education on the importance of the same. Such lack of awareness can have some serious consequences such as temporary infection in the genital areas and infertility. Such factors are expected to positively affect the feminine hygiene products market growth.
