Market Segmentation

This market research report includes detailed market segmentation by distribution, end-users, product types, material types, and geography. The increased demand from institutions such as public health organizations, NGOs, and global organizations to promote the concept of safe sex and increase the awareness of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) is significantly contributing to the growth of the condom market worldwide. Institutional buyers such as UNFPA, USAID, WHO, and other UN agencies are the most significant promoters of male and female condoms. Further, as the fight against HIV has been on for decades now, the demand from institutional condoms in underdeveloped regions has witnessed a significant rise in the past years.

The male condoms segment dominates the condoms market worldwide. A high sexual vigor among males is the major factor for the high percentage of the male condoms segment. Also, the ease of availability, wearability, and disposability of these condoms is another driver for the high share of the segment. Currently, the global female condom market is witnessing rapid growth in the demand for female condoms across the globe.

Given their excellent tensile strength, tear resistance, and resilience, the latex condoms segment dominated the condom market in 2018. Latex remains the predominantly used raw material for the manufacturing of male condoms. The massive purchase and distribution of latex condoms by federal health bodies and UN health missions is another major driver for the high share of the segment.

While the majority of condom distribution takes place through retail stores, established by leading condom manufacturers such as Reckitt Benckiser and Church & Dwight, the increasing sale of condoms via online stores and online direct-to-consumer stores is expected to drive the condom market during the forecast period. The growth of online sales is expected to increase by over 20% YOY during the forecast period.


Improving living standards, increase in per capita disposable incomes, the high usage of innovative condoms, and the growing emphasis on the concept of safe sex are some of the major factors driving the condom market in APAC. In addition, the increased expansion of manufacturing units following the adoption of new technology is contributing to the growth of the market. Further, high growth in countries such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea is another reason driving condom adoption in the region.

Robust institutional sales by government and federal agencies, NGOs, and charitable organizations institutional buyers such as USAID, UNFPA, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and PSI are majorly boosting the condom market in the North America region. Although the sale of branded condoms remains moderate in the region, institutional sales are likely to uplift the market revenue during the forecast period.

The increased adoption of birth control measures, the growing popularity of condoms, especially in women, and the increased per capita disposable income are the key drivers for the Europe condom market. Further, oil-based economies of the Middle East are witnessing an increase in the investor sentiment, thereby boosting consumer products, especially condoms in MEA. Substantial GDP improvements, the decline in poverty levels, and the rise in the condom usage in Brazil and Argentina are expected to propel the condom market in Latin America.
