Outlook of the women’s health market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted the global women’s health market to grow at a CAGR of more than 3% over the forecast period. With many countries improving the healthcare facilities, the market for women’s health will have a positive outlook in the coming years. Many countries have substantially increased their healthcare budgets as a part of their social security measure. For instance, the US government spend 17% of their GDP on the healthcare sector in 2014. With such increases in the budgets by various countries, the women’s health market is expected to show positive growth until the end of 2020.

In this industry research report, the analysts have estimated factors such as the growing awareness of birth control methods will spur the growth of this market in the forecast period. Contraception and fertility control are supported by the governments of developing nations such as India and China to curb the growing population.
