This report also lists 16 other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth between 2017-2021.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global market for topical contraceptives comprises of a limited number of players that are privately owned and operated.  While topical contraceptives are available in retail stores, vendors also market their brands on websites and have partnered with e-commerce platforms to sell their products. However, major players have consistently increased their footprint in the market, especially based on features such as quality, pricing, and market reach. At present, most vendors in the market space are increasingly directing their marketing efforts toward creating category and brand awareness.

According to Amber Chourasia, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on health and wellness, “Most vendors deal with one category and then expand and cater to a very specific target audience. To grow and attain success in the market, it is imperative for vendors to understand the requirements of their target audience. Vendors currently offer products across various price ranges, catering to both the premium and low-end segments.”
